Stitches

Knitting Pattern

Topp Kragenweite
The loop is knitted with two different patterns, a rib pattern and a garter stitch pattern which always switch after a few rounds.

My Opinion

The pattern is really easy to knit with only basic knitting patterns, but a round is quite long. 😉 In total, the scarf is 1.60 m long. Neverthless, I think that it is a really nice and warm loop scarf. I like to wear it at the moment when it’s cloudy or windy outside.

The hat is basically knitted with blocks of right and left stitches, which produces a checkered pattern. After finishing the hat, it gets a crocheted border and a pom-pom.

My Opinion

In general, the pattern is very easy to knit, although I had to experiment with the size of the crochet hook to get a perfect border. I love this hat and I think that the pattern looks really cool.
