In South Carolina, winter gets very cold--for a couple of weeks.  But for the rest of the season, it’s often warm enough to wear short sleeves.  That’s why I decided to create an openwork accessory set--something that would block chilly breezes without being too hot.  I try to keep my designs versatile enough to suit many moods, which is why this pattern includes a flower that can be placed anywhere on the hat or scarf.  The suggested yarn is so silky, you’ll forget it’s wool as you wrap it around your neck in 75 degree weather!  This airy hat and scarf set will get you through warmer winters, and the movable flower will remind you that spring is just around the corner.
