How does that old saying go? “A new year, a new pattern?” That sounds right… yeah.
Well, however that saying goes (and whether or not it’s actually a saying), I’ve got a new pattern for you!
It’s the middle of January, and it’s real cold, so what could be better than a super-squishy, extra warm, nice and thick hat-and-scarf combo?
Nothing. That’s what.
Introducing: the Gradient Scarf and Hat.This bad boy is made from worsted-weight merino, held TRIPLE, so you know it’s going to keep you warm. Both the hat and scarf are worked all over in broken rib, one of my favorite stitches. The fabric is soft, squishy and totally comfy. Plus, there’s a mean pompom on top of the hat. You gotta love a pompom. I mean, look at it:And, that’s not all! This pattern is one of eight in Knit Picks’ new book Quick and Cozy: Bulky Knit Accessories. Patterns like this adorable red cowl from the cover:And these gorgeous colorwork mittens:You can order a copy of the book here!

I love knitting small projects in January–fingerless gloves, hats, beanies. The weeks leading up to Christmas are full of bigger things, afghans, scarves, and finishing the smaller stuff quickly feels like a reprieve!

Icelandic sweaters and pink hats.
Sweaters, scarves, anything quick with chunky yarn!
