knit you advent calendar 2014, day 8: black and gray

Day 8 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Black and Gray

Continuing straight from day 6 - today's surprise is the beanie and scarf set you already saw with the Bear pullover! These sample knits have been in good use for quite some time, and they are still as good as new.

Black and Gray

Stripes are back! This basic set of slouchy beanie and long scarf is wonderfully warm worked in soft alpaca. Why not knit a set for each family member!

Yarn: Baby Alpaca by Shibui Knits

Needles: US 2½ [3 mm] and US 4 [3.5 mm]

Finished measurements: Brim circumference of the beanie: 16 (18, 19¾)” [39 (45, 50) cm]. Scarf: kids (adults) - 7 (8)” [17 (20) cm] wide and 61 (71)” [155 (180) cm] long.
