The 2 ply yarn is between a worsted and a bulky weight (a heavy worsted) 3 - 3½ stitches per inch on size 9 - 11 needles. The texture and softness of this yarn lends itself to a looser knit for sweaters. You'll need 7 - 10 skeins for an adult sweater, 3 - 4 skeins for a child's sweater, 1 or 2 skeins for a hat or scarf.

REVERSIBLE MYSTERY HAT PACKAGE

This long time favorite is still the perfect answer for anyone who says hats are too small or too tight. Easy to knit on a size 10½ circular needle, it's a tube that's closed on both ends. One end fits inside the other end for double warmth over your ears, while the hat is so light and soft, you'll hardly notice you're wearing it. Knit the two ends with complementary, but different color combinations, so you can fold it up with either end on the outside, and truly have two different hats. ADULT SIZE. $49.75

When ordering, specify two color combination.

SHRUGS: From what I've read a shrug can have many variations. Mine has no sleeves, and depending on the size you make, covers half to most of your back. It's knit all in one piece (no seams). You knit (rib) the circle first and when that's done, you cast off part ("arm" holes), and with the other stitches - in waiting - you pick up as you knit back and forth to make the back.

HOOD/SCARF COMBO

Knit a long scarf, then sew enough to make a cozy hood. It's an easy garter stitch pattern, using three skeins of yarn. You can knit back and forth, so the yarn will make blocks of each color, or knit lengthwise, so you'll have long, very narrow stripes of the colors.

 

stripes can run the width of the scarf; in blue, green and grey

 

stripes can run lengthwise; in purple and green
