Hot Scotch

from Anastasiaknits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Hot Scotch
Hot Scotch Hot Scotch Beret and Scarf

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round
  • Increase
  • Decrease
  • Basic knowledge of stranded colorwork

Pattern Description:

Looking to warm up? How about some Hot Scotch? This hat and scarf set will knit up quickly in a bulky alpaca that is sinfully soft, giving the modified beret a beautiful drape. A fair-isle band gives the hat posture: it drapes rather than slouches. The bands are easy two-color stranded knitting, a great introduction to the art of fair isle knitting. Because the fair isle band looks the same both upside down and right-side up, the scarf is seamlessly constructed as a tube. Pull one end of the scarf through a slit in the tube, and you have a polished pulled-together look.
