Knit and purl stitches travel back and forth on this Switchback Rib unisex set. The simple stitch pattern is reversible and repeats over 8 stitches and 10 rows.

The rectangular scarf is knit from end to end, and the size can be customized to create a narrow version or wide wrap. The close fitting hat is knit in the round and stretches to fit a variety of heads.

Both the scarf and hat are reversible and work up quickly in Andrea Eyre’s R4 recycled cashmere yarn, as well as other worsted weight yarns.
