Go on, be a modern duchess or snow queen this winter! This quick-to-knit set features sleek and elegant asymmetrical lines. The hat is worked from the top down in the round with short rows to shape the brim, while the scarflet merges short rows with easy ribbing and garter stitch. For an even more coziness, work a larger gauge or larger size than desired and felt, as shown in the two-color hat.

The pattern includes instructions for both the hat and the scarflet.

Choose a size approx 1-2” / 2.5-5 cm less than head circumference. Photos show size M (green) and size L, felted (purple / black).
