Knitting pattern: Drop Dead Gorgeous Loop & Hat

Here is something to spice up your wardrobe that is cosy AND stylish! The loop scarf is knit in the round on big needles using mostly knit and purl stiches. It gets that certain something from cleverly dropped stitches. Its size makes it wearable as a scarf, wrap, or even as a hood.

The matching hat features super deep ribbing to keep your ears warm, evolving into the drop stitch pattern for the crown.
