Buy the BlueGrill Hat and get the matching BlueGrill Scarf for only $1. Prior purchases count towards this discount.
This graphic windowpane plaid hat is a fun and fashionable way to stay warm through winter’s end. The technique used to create the plaid patterning is smart – knit the horizontal stripes as you go, but insert the vertical stripes as a crochet chain after the knitting is done. The crochet is both basic and supported with two tutorials – pictorial and video – and so much easier than the alternative – eight bobbins! Seed stitch forms an elegant border.
Inspired by Missoni, the bright blue on tonal grays background is a fashion statement. But work it in basic colors – red on black or gold on green – to make it a classic.
Directions are both charted and written.
The pattern for the matching BlueGrill Scarf is also available to download on Ravelry.
