Making Waves Hat and Scarf Pattern Published
Love of Knitting Magazine Holiday Issue 2012 has hit the newstands, and it includes my Making Waves Hat and Scarf Pattern. I find this set really appealing, so I am very pleased that it is now available to everybody. This design utilizes twisted stitches to change the direction of the wave. The wide band of the hat is knit first, then stitches are picked up and knitted along the band edge. For the I-cord edging of the hat, stitches are picked up and knitted, providing the live stitches for knitting the attached I-cord.
This stitch pattern is not reducible by less than twenty rows to maintain the wave symmetry in the band of the hat. To achieve a smaller hat size, a smaller yarn with a needle and gauge appropriate to that yarn should be used while maintaining the stitch count and pattern as written.
I would love to see what yarns you use in knitting this set! Please send me photos of the hat and/or scarf and let me know if I have permission to post the image, and whether you want your name listed with the image. Be sure to tell me the yarn used in the image! Send the image attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
