From pattern description: “This slouchy ribbed beret, with its brilliant orange-yellow color and swirling star pattern on the top, is the most sunny, cheerful piece of clothing I own—just the thing to chase away the winter doldrums or usher in the return of spring. It takes less than one skein of Malabrigo Twist, and with just knits, purls, increases, and decreases, it can be knit up in just a few days.

Note that the natural inclination of the ribbing is to compress greatly, so the hat will be snug and beanie-like until blocked. Don’t worry! It will take on its slouchy shape after being wet-blocked over a dinner plate.

The matching reversible scarf pattern, based on Barbara Walker’s Flame Rib pattern, uses increases and decreases to form a gently undulating shape; knit up with two skeins of Malabrigo Twist, it’s wide and somewhat short, a good length to wrap around the neck once and tuck into a coat. I prefer it with the ribs left compressed for a thick and cozy texture, but you can also block the ribbing out wider to match the look of the hat.

For a slightly lighter fabric, both accessories could be knit up at the same gauge with Malabrigo Merino Worsted—the greater yardage would give you a longer scarf.”

The hat and scarf are listed separately in Ravelry, but the pattern includes instructions for both accessories, both written out and charted.

Released for Malabrigo March 2010!
