Teal Hat and Scarf - One for the Men

And here's one for the men...

This one's already spoken for, but if you're interested I am happy to make another set in various colours. Just let me know what colour combination you'd like.

The yarns used are Lang Mille Colori (50% new wool, 50% nylon) in shade 088 and Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran (100% merino wool) in teal and charcoal grey.

The hat is my usual beanie hat design with the brim of the hat knitted in charcoal grey, the bit above the brim knitted in teal and the stripey bit is knitted in the variegated Lang Mille Colori.

The scarf has been designed with cycling and other outdoor activities in mind. It's been knitted in moss stitch which keeps the scarf nice and flat - almost like a woven fabric - and with a hole in the scarf where the other end of the scarf can be pulled through. This means the usual bulk of a knotted scarf is gone and the scarf will easily fit under a coat. It will also stay in place and hang elegantly rather than be scrunched up. The scarf (because it's doubled up) will still keep you nice and snug and warm.

The fringe has been made with Debbie Bliss yarn in teal and charcoal and strands of the Lang Mille Colori.

Below you can see the lovely silkiness and softness of the Lang yarn. It's slightly slubby (uneven in width) which adds texture.

The price for a set is around £40. Both hat and scarf can be hand washed in hand warm water and dried flat.


  1. Gosh, that yarn really knits up a treat! Looks really smart. Well done!

  2. I love the shape of that hat!
