PATTERN: Harf

Test knit done, so I’d say the pattern is ready for release!

Harf

A harf is a fitted hood that fits closely to the head so that there is nowhere for the cold winter winds to come in. The scarf is actually more of a cowl in that it is an attached loop to the hood that you twist and loop over your head, holding the hood snugly (but comfortably) in place, locking in the warmth and locking out out the cold. The harf is knit in garter stitch for extra squish, but also for the stretch and elasticity garter gives. You want it to be quite stretchy so that it really conforms to your head. Without a pompom a harf is perfect for going underneath a helmet. With a pompom it is a sassy piece of winter warmth.

 

Materials required:

  • 300 yards (plus additional length for pompom) worsted weight yarn or a light chunky weight yarn (I have done both with success)
  • Size US10 circular needle
  • 2 stitch markers
  • Additional needle for holding stitches, or some scrap yarn to hold them

 


PATTERN: Zig-a-zig-ahh Socks

Zig-A-Zig Ahh socks!

Sassy zig zag!

Sassy zig zag!

Toe up sock with a sassy zig-zag up the side. Don’t worry about intarsia in the round or stupidly long carries. This design has neither! The zigzag is all self-contained and lovely, I promise. These socks are easily adaptable to different sizes. (As written it fits a ladies size 7-9 US) And hey! You get to use the heel turning technique of your choosing!

Includes diagrams and detailed instructions, as well as charts for the zig-zag. The pattern is written to be toe-up but I am fairly certain the chart and the technique for the zig-zag could be easily adapted to work as a cuff down.
