Wearable designs - why I will be wrapped in my Bonfire scarf this winter

It has been a while since I was a size 10, which means I don't always fit the sample garments I make to accompany my patterns for magazines. Luckily accessories don't have that problem and occasionally I decide to wear some of my hat or scarf samples.

I am particularly looking forward to my Bonfire Hat and Scarf in the current issue of Knitting Magazine (172, Autumn 2017) coming back. I think it will be my go-to set this Autumn, although I think I will let the slouch of the hat drop to the side or back.

One of my favourite things about these items is that the lace pattern means they both are completely reversible so you can just grab them and wrap up on a chilly day.
Plus they are in one of my two absolute favourite aran yarns - Debbie Bliss Falkland Aran which is one of the squishiest aran weight yarns I've ever worked with.
