Time for a Coffee Break with a clever gradient that shifts across coffee house hues, from plain or fancy lattes and cappuccinos to a deep rich espresso! This Hat and Scarf set are worked in linen stitch, which, due to the alternating slip stitches, makes it both warm and beautiful on both sides of the fabric. The contrasting colours make a tiny zig-zag, providing a chance to play with colours, as subtly or boldly as you’d like.
