Woven Braid Ski Hat:
I wanted a scarf with just a bit of texture to POP the Noro colorway, but not too busy with the hat. I'm calling this improv pattern "Textural Noro Scarf"! The reverse looks just like any other garter stitch scarf. It works well together!
Cast on 27
Foundation Row: (K3, P1) x 6, end K3
Row 1: (K3, slip 1 purlwise) x 6, end K3
Row 2: (K3, P1) x 6, end K3.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until desired length.
Bind off in pattern.
Soak, pat dry, and block!
The use of blocking wires in the side edges helps tremendously. The photos I’ve posted are the “unblocked” scarf. I will block this scarf later, for sure!
