Back to school, and back to fall knitting!

Well, as if the shortening days weren’t enough to tell us that summer is nearing its end, school is beginning again! Before you know it, there will be a chill in the morning air. Better get started on your super warm fall accessories now!

If you really want to chase the chill away, why not try the Burdock Hat and Scarf kit?

This is a super-soft, machine washable, totally reversible set. The pattern is inspired by the Burdock plant, a Scandinavian thistle, and Fana stripes.

The scarf is knit as a tube, with each side of the Thistle pattern in opposite colors, and pockets worked into each end to keep your hands (or keys!) warm. The hat is cast on in the middle and worked in opposite colors outward. One of these layers is pushed inside the other, the crown is secured, and you have a super-thick reversible hat!

The Burdock Hat and Scarf is available as a Kit in Pink or Blue and uses Swish Worsted. If you prefer a different yarn or your own color palette, the pattern is available separately.

Get ready to get cozy this fall, and have a happy Labor Day and a great start to the school year!
