Fair Winds Beanie & Scarf Pattern

Fair Winds Beanie & Scarf Pattern





The Design

“I wish you fair winds and following seas.”

This nautical blessing describes that happy confluence of good fortune and the good sense to go with the flow. The simple braid pattern on the scarf has cable twists on alternating sides for complete reversibility. The cables on the cap converge neatly at the crest. Both promise smooth sailing!

Pattern includes written and charted instructions for both beanie and scarf.
