This pattern uses a slightly skewed garter stitch in order to take advantage of the unique, skein-by-skein variations in Panguipulli. As the brim of the hat is knit sideways and stitches are picked up for the crown, there is a lot of ease, allowing the hat to fit a wide variety of heads- and the pattern includes instructions for modification for bigger or smaller heads, too! The pattern also explains the best way to alternate skeins on the scarf to blend radically different skeins together. If you’re looking for a pattern to highlight a variegated yarn, this is it!

The hat takes about 60g of aran weight, and the scarf uses up the remaining 40g plus another skein of yarn. They could easily be made separately or together as a matched pair! To make the set requires 200g (2 skeins) of aran weight.

The pdf pattern includes both a charted and a written out version of the stitch pattern, with the charted version copied out onto every page for easy access.
