Aslope Hat and Cowl Set


The perfect transitional hat and cowl for between the seasons, this lovely, lacy set provides just enough warmth with plenty of visual interest. Knit it in a silk blend as shown in the photo, or some soft cotton blend to add to its delicate appearance. You can get both projects out of under 300 yards of luscious yarn so you get a lot of bang for your buck!

Finished Size:
Hat – Approximately 20” (22”) in circumference at picot hem, aggressively blocked (see note); approximately 6” in height from bottom of hem to start of crown; laid flat, 9” tall at center/tallest point.
Cowl – 25” in circumference x 7” tall

Materials:
274 yds DK weight (CYCA 3, Light) yarn for both projects.
16” circular knitting needle size 4/3.5mm or size needed to obtain gauge
Stitch marker
Tapestry needle


Gauge:
16 sts and 12 rows = 4” in lace pattern after blocking


Note:
While it looks like there is a discrepancy in the gauge between the hat and the cowl, I blocked the picot hem of the hat much more than the picot hems of the cowl. I wanted the hat brim to snap back for a snug fit without ribbing or elastic – the cowl hems do not need to be so snug.
