Football season is in full swing, and before you know it, it's going to be frosty! With memories of last year's crisp winter wind in mind, I knit a simple two-color hat and scarf set to go with the warm, buttery-soft SimpliWorsted yarn. Then I got carried away and knit a matching mitten pattern! The Double Coverage Hat, Double Coverage Scarf, and Double Coverage Mittens each require two skeins of yarn, one of each color.
We carry over 50 SimpliWorsted colors - but choosing your team colors
has never been easier! The creative team at Skacel have matched the
great SimpliWorsted colors to your city's team colors, so getting the
right colors is a snap! The numbers in the swatches on the cheat sheet match the SimpliWorsted yarn color numbers. Scroll through the SimpliWorsted page, or search "SimpliWorsted" and the color number in the search box to go right to your color.
Bonus: Get a free "Double Coverage" pattern with purchase of two skeins of SimpliWorsted yarn! Let us know whether you would like the hat/scarf pattern or the mitten pattern in the "Comments Section" during checkout! We will e-mail you the pattern of your choice when we ship your yarn. Free patterns are available through the end of October!
So what are our favorite colors? We have a rather intense in-store rivalry! Nicki, Vera and I knit with Green Bay's green (SimpliWorsted color 50) and gold (57), Sean and Karen prefer Chicago's blue (55) and orange (51), and Wendi stays out of the feud by knitting with Kansas City's red (16) and gold (57). Suzy always thought the Rams was a silly name for a football team, since her sheep are so docile ... until the first time she was hit by a ram and was very sore and bruised the next day! Now she thinks the Rams must be very tough!
