Moda Dea Hat and Scarf

























I have created this hat and scarf set using Moda Dea's Cache' in Siren. This is 75% Wool, 22% Acrylic, and 3% Polyester. The hat uses 2 skeins, and the scarf uses approximately 5 skeins.

The hat pattern is simple.
Head measurement = 22 inches
Using 3 size 10.5 double pointed needles, cast on 68 stitches.
K2,P2 rib for 1 1/2 inches (Using 4th double pointed needle)
Knit even until hat measures 7 inches

Decreasing
  • Round 1 - (decrease 4 stitches evenly) - K15, K2tog *
  • Round 2 - Knit even (64 stitches)
  • Round 3 - K6, k2tog*
  • Round 4 - Knit even (56 stitches)
  • Round 5 - K5, K2tog*
  • Round 6 - Knit even (48 stitches)
  • Round 7 - K4, K2tog*
  • Round 8 - Knit even (40 stitches)
  • Round 9 - K3, K2tog*
  • Round 10 - Knit even (32 stitches)
  • Round 11 - K2, K2tog*
  • Round 12 - Knit even (24 stitches)
  • Round 13 - K1, K2tog* (16 stitches)
  • Round 14 - K2tog* (8 stitches)
Thread the end of the yarn through the remaining stitches.

Scarf
Cast on 34 Stitches on size 10.5 Needles.
Right side - K2,P2*
Wrong Side - P2, K2*
Continue until scarf measures 60 inches.
These are two easy patterns for beginners, and the use of a variegated yarn makes it fun and easy to add a pop of color to your wardrobe.
