Otago's coastline is cold with winds blowing in from Antarctica, but you will be cosy in this close fit hat with elastic gusset and the matching keyhole scarf. Sized for everyone from 6 months to the largest adult, please see the schematic for the exact size to knit. I have suggested a fuzzy sport weight yarn, feel free to substitute a light DK as the yarn I have used "blooms" after washing to fill in the gaps. Check to yardage per 50g to find a similar yarn. The pattern includes the instructions for both the hat and the scarf.

I love designing knitwear for babies and older kids too, I'm inspired by the world around me, whether it's the green bush covered hills where I live, or the bright city lights and sparkling harbor. I try to find a way to incorporate traditional, modern and whimsical elements into every garment I design. Children need to be comfortable and relaxed in their clothing, they need the opportunity to jump and run and paint without restriction. I try to design with these qualities in mind.
