A plush cabled hat and scarf set provides jaunty warmth for sledding, cross-country skiing, or simply tramping out to the schoolbus. The pert, mushroom-shaped cap is worked up from a tubular cast-on hem in two skeins of Shelter and is sized all the way to adult dimensions; the matching scarf is a simple end-to-end knit that can be worked to any length. Both accessories feature a flight of chevrons filled with garter stitch and flanked by large and small simple cables to timeless and ageless effect.

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric):

  • Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size B (for Ribbing):

  • One 16″ circular needle, and either one 32″ circular needle or a pair of straight needles, two sizes smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only):

  • One 16″ circular needle, and either one 32″ circular needle or a pair of straight needles*, one size smaller than Size B
  • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

*Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used

†32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs and 16″ circular if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. Please test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
