This is my version of a one piece hat-scarf based on the hat-scarf worn by 19th century Frenchman Charles-Marie-Étienne Champion Dubois de Nansouty (pictured on the left; image from Wikipedia). He was a military man turned mountaineer who lived from 1815-1895. I discovered his picture at an event hosted by the National Park Service in Maryland and knew I had to recreate his hat-scarf.

The yarn I used is:
Lion Brand Yarn Fishermen’s Wool, Natural (MC) – 2 skeins, 930 yds.
Lion Brand Yarn, Fishermen’s Wool, Brown Heather (CC) – 1 skein plus about 50 yds. of a second skein, ~510 yds.
