It was a happy accident when I went to design a hat to match the scarf that I had knit. The triangles from the scarf turned into a beautiful flower when worked in the round. This is a fantastic weight for those spring or fall days with unsettled weather, when you need a few layers but don’t want to risk being too bundled. What better way to add some colour to your wardrobe?
MC: Koigu KPPM colour number P715 (100% merino, 50g, 175y/160m)
CC: BMFA Socks That Rock Medium weight Nialla (100% merino, 155g, 380y/ 347m) – less than 50g is required
If you are thinking of doing the whole set (mitts, hat, shawl) then you will need about 200g of each colour. The mitts and hat can be done with 100g of each.
