Shoshana Set PDF
Just in time for probably 8,000 more snowstorms in the Northeast, I present the kind of quick, warm knit we all seem to be looking for these days.
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
Sizes: One-size for the scarf; hat is sized to fit a teen (adult, adult).
Final Measurements: Scarf measures approximately 8” x 68”/ 20cm x 173cm, without fringe. Hat measures 20 (21, 23)”/51 (53.5, 58.5) cm in circumference and approximately 91?4”/23.5cm from CO edge to crown.
Yarn: Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky (85% wool/ 15% alpaca), 108yds/99m per 100g ball; Shown in color 20 (plum), 5 balls for the scarf including fringe and 1 ball for the hat.
Gauge: 12 sts & 16 rows = 4”/10cm in stockinette stitch; cable pattern is compressed vertically and has a different row gauge.
Pattern Notes: I chose a stitch pattern that’s a blend of lace and cables for the scarf; at first, I tried mixing the lozenge pattern up with a number of other cables but in the end stacked it against itself. The Berkshire Bulky was a pure pleasure to work with (and just the right price for my post-holiday-shopping-self). It has a subtle sheen, and the single really adds just the right appearance to the lace/cable combination. The scarf is fringed for her greater pleasure.
I knew I wanted to use the lozenge pattern on the hat, but also knew that each medallion was wide enough that I couldn’t simply repeat the lozenges around to size the hat properly. Lozenges on the small hat are alternated with knit stitches; larger hats include larger twists in between the panels. All in all the hat will fit a teen through a large adult head.Hat
