Mirknin Hat and Scarf
A perfect introduction to traditional Fair Isle knitting, the classic OXO pattern arrangement, with its easy-to-read-and-memorize geometric motif, makes Elinor Brown’s hat and scarf accessible to knitters new to stranded colorwork. The background is worked in shades of blue accented by brilliant and unexpected colors for the pattern group—green, orange, yellow, and red. The stitch pattern is repeated along the length of the tubular scarf. The hat showcases three bands of the same OXO motif, the first of which is worked simultaneously with crown decreases unobtrusively and elegantly centered in each O.
