Scarf-Hat


A lovely lady in the US asked me to make one of my aviator hats for her grand daughter but she wanted a scarf instead of the normal earflaps. So the scarf-hat was born, knitted in beautifully soft Heirloom merino magic in a bright lollipop pink shade.

Yet another version of my Aviator Hat, this one in Iris Blue Classic from Bendigo Woollen Mills.

Speaking of Bendigo Woollen Mills, you gotta check this out, Neon in fabulous variegated colours. I am going to go and add to the stash, this stuff looks awesome!

The kids are into the second week of holidays here in Tasmania so it is very busy, not to mention noisy. I at least have my knitting group today to give me some 'me time', can't wait. I also have two other orders to work on as well, a pair of fingerless gloves complete with skulls and a black poncho. I also have just designed and made a great pair of fingerless mitts which I hope to add to my Etsy shop. I have only made this sample pair yet but I am very happy with the end result, they were made from Bendigo Rustic Pacifica in 12 ply.


That is all for now I am off to check out that Neon!! Till next time, happy knitting.

What a great idea - a scarf hat - I am sure the little girl will be thrilled! Love your fingerless mittens - such a pretty design!

i wish they have the neon yarn in 200g balls though. 50g balls means i have to join yarns. i hate it!! i hate hiding the ends!! hahahaha.

Great hats... what a lovely intricate pattern on your fingerless mitts. They make me yearn for winter (not that we really get that season here in Texas).

Have a great week.

You are too clever! Love the scarf/hat. The mitts are really nice too, great texture.

I love the scarf hat, great idea! Must go and buy some of that Merino magic yarn, I've never used it looks lovely and soft.

I love both the hats, and the scarf added on is a great addition. Those mitts look great too.

I love the pattern on those grey mitts - very cool!
And the scarf hat is too sweet (not showing it to daughter, as it would instantly be added to the 'can I have one of those?' list)
