West Coast Wave Hat, Cowl, Mitts and Scarf Set
Taking inspiration from our view of the North Oregon Coast, I developed the West Coast Wave Hat, Cowl, Mitts and Scarf Set. The set was developed with “LITTLE WAVES” from 4oo knitting stitches, by Potter Craft, p201, but I modified the wave with an additional knit1 for ease of counting. I also modified the pattern with yarn over twice, dropping the second yarn over in the next round. This created larger lace openings and peaks/waves. If West Coast Wave Hat, Mitts, Cowl or Scarf Set is knit in a cotton blend, perfect for cool spring and summer evenings. If knit in blended wool, great for the blustery winter.
