Knitted 1800s Hat-Scarf
This is my knit version of a one piece hat-scarf based on the hat-scarf worn by 19th century Frenchman Charles-Marie-Étienne Champion Dubois de Nansouty (image from Wikipedia). He was a military man turned mountaineer who lived from 1815-1895. I discovered his picture at an event hosted by the National Park Service in Maryland and knew I had to recreate his hat-scarf.
The yarn I used is: Lion Brand Yarn Fishermen’s Wool, Natural (MC) – 1.25 skeins, 580 yds. Lion Brand Yarn, Fishermen’s Wool, Brown Heather (CC) – 1 skein, 465 yds.
