Basic Skills Necessary:

  • For the loop you should be able to work in the round, knit, purl and do yarn overs.
  • For the hat you should be able to work small diameters in the round, knit, purl, do yarn overs and decreases.

Pattern Description:

This is something to spice up your wardrobe that is cosy AND stylish! The loop scarf is knit in the round on big needles using mostly knit and purl stiches. It gets "that certain something" from cleverly dropped stitches. Its size makes it wearable as a scarf, wrap, or even as a hood.

The matching hat features super deep ribbing to keep your ears warm, evolving into the drop stitch pattern for the crown.
