Snowy Ridges Hat and Scarf

A lovely textured rolled brimmed hat and long scarf to match, with a shell and ridge pattern throughout.








Just what you need on a cold, snowy day to look great but keep yourself toasty warm.

Measurements:  Hat:  Women/Teens; Circumference up to 22”; Hat height 8.5”; Scarf 6” x 72”
The hat is designed to have a lightly rolled brim.
Materials:  3 x 100g skeins worsted weight yarn #4 (aran/10ply); I used Stylecraft Special Aran in White; 5mm (H/8), 4mm (G/6) hooks; yarn needle
Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet; dc = double crochet; hdc = half double crochet; fpdc = front post double crochet; bpdc = back post double crochet; sk = skip; sl st = slip stitch; rep = repeat; beg = beginning; ch = chain.
Gauge:  12 sts and 12 rows hdc with 5mm (H/8) hook = 4” square
Difficulty:  Easy
The scarf can be made any width by beginning with any multiple of 6 +3.
The pattern is written in US terms; a chart for UK terms is included at the end.

Pattern:
Scarf:
To begin:  Using 5mm (H/8) hook, chain 27
Row 1:  (2dc ch1, 2dc) shell in 6th chain from hook, *sk 2, dc**, sk2, (2dc ch1, 2dc) shell in next ch* rep from * to * across, ending last rep at **; turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc now and throughout), *(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-1 space, skip next 2 dc of shell, fpdc in next dc; rep from * across, ending last rep with dc in the top of turning ch instead of last fpdc;  turn.
Row 3: Ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-1 space, skip next 2 dc of shell, bpdc in next dc; rep from * across ending last rep with dc in the top of the turning ch instead of last bpdc, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you have reached your desired length.

Fasten off and weave in ends.  If you wish, you can attach the yarn to the other end and work 2 pattern rows, so that both ends have the same “scalloped” edge.
