Basketweave scarf and Post stitch cap

This is one of fastest scarves I have knitted so far. Only thing is to keep the count of stitches which is quite easy after first 2-3 repeats. I love the way it has turned out.
This does not look same from both sides, but from both sides it looks beautiful. I also loved the wave shape of it. I think my friend would love it.

One of the easiest hats to crochet. I wanted to knit a hat that would go with the basket weave scarf, but even after searching a lot, i could not decide on any pattern. Then I saw this one which I liked immediately.
For some reason, I felt the hat would turn out too small. So I was careful from the beginning. This has turned to be very warm and well fitted hat.
Corrections made to original pattern -
1) After round 5, I crocheted one more increase row which made the hat bigger.
ch 3, 1 dc in same sp, * 1 dc in next 9 sts, 2 dc in next,
repeat from * around. sl st to join.
2) I wanted the the hat to cover ears. So I crocheted about 3-4 extra repeats of row 6 (after row 13 in the pattern).
