One Hat - Four Styles

Happy Mother's Day!!!

One hat-4 ways to wear it with matching scarf!
Pattern:  My own
Yarn:  (Hat and scarf)
Plymouth Sara Superwash (2 skeins)
Cascade 220 Superwash (2 skeins)
If you would like the hat pattern, leave a comment on this post and I'll e-mail it to you.

The hat is reversible and can be worn with the "brim" turned up.  It's actually a tube with the appropriate increases and decreases at the ends and the hat is as soft as can be.

The hat and scarf will be donated to a"Head Start" child in Rhode Island.  My daughter used to be director of the program and collects hats and mittens for the organization.  I will be knitting a pair of mittens for this set.
I used the Jared Flood Nora scarf pattern (Google it) for this project but cast on 29 stitches instead.  The edge is lovely and a great way to carry alternating yarn without it showing. 

"World Wide Knit In Public Day" is scheduled for Saturday, June 19th
Check you local listings or with your LYS for location and time.

In Vermont.....sponsored by Kaleidescope Yarn
Time: 8:30 AM
Location: City Hall Park, Burlington (during the Farmer's Market)
Note: Bring your knitting (of course) and a chair or blanket.  Parking garage available on St. Paul St. (one block over).

It's back to reality tomorrow.  I'm returning to work after a week of vacation with plenty of relaxation, good food, and knitting and very little housework.

Happy Knitting!


  1. What an adorable set!!! I love the new banner, as well.

  2. Oh, the set is lovely. Now whoever gets the set, can you glue it onto them so they won't lose it. Renate

  3. What a perfect warm easy hat. I would love the pattern. Jane

  4. What a lovely Set. Great to catch up with what you are doing.

  5. Thanks for the heads up on WWKIP! I'm doing it this year!

  6. Goo food? ;-) Yeah, I like gooey food, too. I'd love the hat pattern - looks so cute, yet simple.

    Knit in Public Day? Hmmm...I'll have to start making plans...perhaps I could knit while moseying through Target? Love the concept (of knitting in public, not knitting in Target). :-)

  7. I had a hat like that, doubleknit in a tube, that my grandmother gave me for my 12th birthday. I still have it. It was the very warmest, softest thing you could imagine, and your hat is bringing back all kinds of good memories. Some child in Rhode Island will be very fortunate.

  8. I've always wanted to try a double-knit hat, Joansie, so I'd love the pattern. Some little child will be very blessed by that darling set next winter.

    I rarely knit things with stripes, though I love the look. I guess I'm a lazy knitter, as I just hate changing yarns (all those many ends to be weaved in!). I've seen the Jared Flood scarf on Ravelry, but never looked at the pattern. I didn't realize this was a knit that you could carry the yarn up the sides. I need to give it a looksie!

  9. You've out done yourself! This is one beautiful set. The color combinations are endless. Just like crayons. ;-)

  10. Joansie, it is evident you have the biggest heart! I love this hat, perfect for a trip where you want variety but don't want to pack that many hats =) I thought I would hate my 1st winter up here on the North East but being able to wear fun knitted stuff like this made it a little worth it!

  11. Love the new look on your blog...very nice! The reversable hat is wonderful, believe that would make it doubly warm. When you get a chance, please do mail me your pattern. I'll check out the scarf, love the two tone.


  12. I absolutely love it! Can you send me the pattern??
