In preparing to take a hike on the Mendenhall Glacier outside of Juneau, Alaska, I knew I needed new knitwear that would keep me cozy and warm. That gap between my scarf and hat has always bothered me, so I designed this hat/scarf combination (or “harf,” as my children have christened it). In this version, a long band is knit that becomes both the scarf and the band of the hat. The crown of the hat is picked up from the center of the scarf, allowing the ends to cross at the back of the neck to seal the gap and keep you extra warm.
In bulky yarn, this is a quick and simple knit—great for your own expeditions, wherever they may be!
I have not tried the pattern yet
