Svea by Mend&Repair is a gorgeously simple Scandinavian style hat and scarf worked in 4×4 ribbing. The designer recommends a soft yarn that will allow the hat to shape organically – slouchy and slightly pointed. We can see this knit in a variety of yarns from Blue Sky Alpacas Sport Weight (100% alpaca), Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk (50% silk / 50% alpaca), Manos del Uruguay’s Silk Blend (70% merino / 30% silk) or, for a very luxurious version, Handmaiden Fine Yarns Cashmere 4 Ply (100% Cashmere). Hat pattern is provided in 2 sizes and the scarf is a generous 10×71 in. but can be easily modified.
A classic, elegant set that will never go out of style.
