The falling leaves hat and scarf set will appeal to experienced and new lace knitters alike. It is an excellent choice for a first lace knitting project as it only requires a few stitches to create a beautiful repeating leaf pattern. The pattern is also classy enough to take you from everyday wear to a night out, all while staying nice and cosy.

The pattern includes instructions for two different hat sizes: S/M (teenage/small adult) and M/L (adult), and a one size fits all scarf, with both written instructions and a chart.

The hat has been designed so that the leaf pattern continues to the crown, so there is no break in the pattern and the leaves cover the whole hat. It is worked in the round on either a circular or double pointed needles.

The 2 part set requires 150g (3 x 50g balls) of DROPS Alpaca yarn, using 50g for the hat, and 100g for the scarf. It is knitted on 3.75mm needles.
