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!

Berroco Ultra Alpaca's perfectly round spin and structure showcase cables beautifully. Peruvian Highland wool has bounce to balance the drape of alpaca. And delightfully soft, Ultra Alpaca is also great for warmth but not too hot, making these projects perfect for multi-season wear and also a favorite for men. With a wonderful choice of colors in heathers and solids, wouldn't it be fun to have a basket of these by the front door, ready for your next adventure?!

Beanie is knit in the round; scarf is knit flat. Instructions for both are given in text format as well as charted.

KNITTER'S NOTES

The cable pattern in the beanie is very elastic and will stretch to fit comfortably around a small to large size adult head.

As stitches stretch, however, they shorten up a little, so for a larger size (22–24") we’ve added ½"/1cm of length to the ribbing.

For a custom fit, measure your head from brow bone (or wherever you would like the beanie to sit on your forehead) over your head to the base of your skull. Divide this number in half, and subtract 6"/15.25cm (length of all cable rounds, including decrease rounds). The remainder is the length of ribbing you’ll need to knit.
