My design ideas and advice: With most of my hand knit garment patterns I like to have an accessory pattern in the same stitch technique. There are many reasons for this, the first is usually because I enjoy the rhythm of the stitch technique and want to design an accessory that gives that immediate knitting satisfaction and another is fr knitters who are new to the technique and so they feel more comfortable trying out the new stitches on an accessory rather than a garment. This stitch technique is one of my favourites and I used it in Emmen DK Tank Top as well as the classic Emmen Jumper.
If you know those patterns then you will know how fun and easy this stitch is to knit. It looks complicated but it is super simple.
For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts for hat: one 50g balls of Mohair Tweed (70% merino/30% mohair, 110m/120yds per 50g) in shade A and shade B.
Needles for hat: 4mm circular needle (40cm length) and set of four double pointed 4mm needles (hat is knitted in the round)
Yarn & Amounts for scarf: Two 50g balls of Mohair Tweed in shade A and one ball of shade B.
Needles for scarf: 4mm needles (scarf is knitted in rows)
Gauge (tension): 24 stitches and 46 rows to 10cm square over dotty garter stitch pattern when using 4mm needles.
Size: to fit adult head.
