Fair Winds Beanie & Scarf - Woolstok Version

Fair Winds Beanie & Scarf - Woolstok Version

"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!

Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok is strong and sturdy and gently plied. Shows off pattern and texture in crisp relief, making it an ideal yarn for these warm cabled accessories. Surprisingly soft, lofty and light - you can almost feel the lanolin in this select 100% Peruvian Fine Highland Wool. A wonderfully expansive palette of twenty-one colors inspired by the craggy, unspoiled terrain of Peru.

Beanie is knit in the round; scarf is knit flat. Instructions for both are given in text format, with charts for following cable patterns.

We've picked a few favorite shades below, but you can check out the full selection of colors on the Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok page. You'll need 2 skeins for the hat and 6 skeins for the scarf (8 skeins for a set).

FINISHED SIZES

Scarf: Approx. 8½"/21.5cm wide x 70"/178cm long, after blocking.

Both shown in color 1317 Midnight Sea.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS:
Beanie: US 6 (4mm) 16"/40cm circular and double-point needles, or size to obtain gauge; plus US 4 (3.5mm) 16"/40cm circular needle, or two sizes smaller than gauge needle.
Scarf: US 7 (4.5mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge. Pins, blocking wires (optional).
Both: Cable needle. Locking stitch marker. Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Beanie: Approx. 28 sts = 4"/10cm on gauge needle in beanie cable pattern, slightly stretched.
Scarf: Approx. 26 sts = 4"/10cm on gauge needle in scarf cable pattern, after blocking.

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.
