This hat and scarf set is just as fun and colourful as sprinkles on top of … everything! With short, simple patterning and easy-to-follow construction, stranded colourwork is wonderfully accessible to every knitter, promising ample opportunity for play and exploration.

PATTERN NOTES
The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.
The scarf is worked flat in two pieces, from each end, and grafted in the center. The scarf uses the yarn remaining from the hat. Should you desire a longer scarf, more yarn may be needed. Optionally, the scarf may be worked in the same colour order as the hat.
The stitch patterns are both written (see Stitches Used) and charted (pages 2-3) for your preference.
Strengthen your colourwork skills with our Modern Colourwork course at the School of SweetGeorgia.
