To make the scarf, I used a large ball of yarn and a pattern off the label of a smaller ball of the same size yarn. I still didn’t have the right size needles for the job, and selected to use one larger and one smaller to knit the scarf. I remembered years ago knitting a cardigan in this fashion to give a lacy effect. The project was fun and quick to knit with an nice block pattern to follow. I like to count when knitting. There was also a version of the pattern in crochet. I haven’t found the pattern yet online but will link, when I do, otherwise, I can copy it later. After knitting the scarf, I knit a new hat to match. The result was beautiful, and I get compliments on the set, each time I wear it. Warm too!
