Thick & Thin hat and scarf are celebrate the natural beauty of hand knits. The contrast of scale and simple geometry make both of these accessories classic with just enough interest to hold your attention. Both of these accessories are knit with both worsted and super bulky yarn, creating a very unusual magnifying glass type effect. You can choose to match the colors and tell a texture story, or to switch it up and color block as well. As a plus, after making it half way through each project, just as you start to wish you could knit faster, you get to switch to size 15 needles. The scarf looks great on a man, but as a woman who is just not into lace, I adore it. The hat is nongendered also and all adult size heads.

am a big fan of exploring new techniques and stitches, especially when there’s color involved. I love to see all the different ways knitters personalize my patterns, so please stop by my group, introduce yourself, and maybe share a pic. ♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒ PM me about wholesale patterns and teaching opportunities! ♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒♒
