A line segment extending from the center of a circle or sphere to the circumference. This matching hat and armwarmer set adds a sporty edge to cold-weather wardrobes. Knit with ropy Merino Alpaca, Radii has a dense, plush feel that keeps head and arms warm with elastic 2 x 1 ribbing. A shock of vibrant color adds exciting contrast to a mellow neutral hue.

’pbf’ - a technique to increase 1 stitch by β€˜Purl Back and Front’ - that is, insert the Right Needle into the 1st on the Left Needle and make a purl stitch as you would normally, then before sliding off the stitch on the Left Needle, make another purl stitch into the back leg of that same stitch (it is a little awkward if you are a tight knitter!). Then, with 2 purl stitches made from one stitch, slip the stitch off the Left Needle.
