Pigtail Cap Finished

I recently purchased Judith Durant's book, One-Skein Wonders. I've finished one of the hats, called the Knitted Cap with Pigtails. I enjoyed making the cap, which is knitted and crocheted, and am posting the pictures here. I used Plymouth Encore Colorspun Chunky in a blue-green-indigo combination. I think it turned out pretty cute. I'm trying to design a scarf to go with it. I'm not sure with a skein and a half left, if it will be enough, but here goes:

Cast on: 20 stitches with #10 needles
Rows 1-4: Seed Stitch
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Purl
Repeat Rows 5 & 6 4 more times each.
Rows 15-18: K1, P1, repeat both until end of row.
Repeat Rows 5-18 until scarf is of desired length.
4 rows of Seed stitch
Bind off.
