Docklands Hat and Scarf – A Toasty Knit Kiddie Set
Another fantastic Lion Brand Yarn creation, the Knit Docklands Hat and Scarf is a must-have kiddie accessory set. Both the hat and the scarf feature two-color stripes that give them a classic style.
In addition, the pattern is easy to knit, ideal for advancing beginners to work on.
Moreover, the hat comes in two sizes, measuring about 14 and 15.5 inches in circumference. Meanwhile the scarf measures about 7 by 50 inches. That’s 35.5 and 39.5 cm, and 18 by 127 cm respectively if you prefer the metric system.
For this set, you will need the Heartland yarn, which is an exquisitely soft, medium-weight yarn. The solids are spun from 100% premium acrylic, while the tweeds are made from a blend of acrylic and rayon. This yarn is actually a great choice for garments, afghans, and accessories.
Moreover, you will also be needing US size 8 knitting needles. That’s 5 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.
Finally, as you come to finish the pattern, you will have to weave in the yarn ends. This method will give your shrug a nice and neat finish.
