Peaks Child's Scarf and Hat

from Katherine Vaughan Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Peaks Child's Scarf and Hat
Peaks Child's Scarf and Hat
Peaks Child's Scarf and Hat
Peaks Child's Scarf and Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit & purl patterning
  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

The idea behind this very cute child's hat and scarf set was simple: create something with bold lines that a knitter would enjoy making AND that a kid would enjoy wearing. Simple in idea, but not so simple in execution!

The finished design uses a strong reversible diagonal rib to keep the knitting and the scarf/hat interesting. A keyhole in the scarf keeps it from falling off or dragging on the ground during play. The very gradual decreases in the hat give it an elfin look that is cute either stood up on end or flopped over. Best of all, the stretchiness of the overall pattern means that this combo will last several seasons by growing with the child.
