Caradhras was the pass the 9 fellows in J.R.R. Tolkiens The Lord Of The Ring had to cross while attempting to go over the misty mountains. Saruman sent them a hard snowstorm which they had to endure.

This amazing set constisting a scarf and a hat, withstands every snowstorm and cold winter. It keeps the wearer dependably warm and can be worn in versatile ways. The pattern stitch is reversible.

The cable pattern from the scarf repeats in the hat.

The hat is knitted in back- and forth rows starting from a provisional cast-on. The stitches of the cast-on row are later grafted in kitchener stitch to the last row so there is no visible seam.

The set can be knitted of any snuggly winter yarn in sport, DK, worsted to bulky weight.
You will need approx. 200 – 300 grams of yarn for the scarf and approx. 100 grams of yarn for the hat.

Additionally you will need citchen scales, 2 stitch markers, 1 cable holder and a bit of waste yarn and a crochet hook for the provisional cast-on for the hat.

Use straight or circular needles, whichever you prefer.

I recommend to choose one needle size larger than it is noted on the ball band.
To turn the scarf into a loop you need 4 buttons. I recommend to buy the buttons bevor working the button hole, because its size has to be adjusted to the actual diameter of the buttons.

The pattern is tried and tested, it runs 10 pages and contains charts and a written pattern.

The skill level is easy so it can be worked by beginners and advanced knitters.
