Waby Baby Adult Winter Set

I had a lot of fun making that little Waby Baby Cap, so I decided to expand my pattern to include an adult size and also a matching scarf.  I figured this would make a great gift for my friend Katie.

Waby Baby Adult Hat and Scarf

Example knit from Phildar Horizons in Fjord, which is a fuzzy thick & thin worsted weight yarn, but any worsted weight yarn is suitable.  The hat circumference is about 21 inches, unstretched, depending on gauge.


I worked this flat and then seamed it up the side, but it could easily be worked in the round if you prefer.

Cast on 108 sts for this hat, on size US 7 needles, to allow for 6 pattern repeats of the wave pattern.

Work in K1P1 ribbing for 2 1/2 inches.  Place stitch markers after every 18 stitches.

Switch to size 10 needles and follow pattern repeat between each stitch marker:
Row 1: (K2tog) 3 times, (K1, yo) 6 times, (K2tog) 3 times.
Row 2: Knit.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: Purl.Continue pattern repeat 6 times.

Begin decreasing for crown between each stitch marker as follows:
Row 1: (K2tog) 3 times, (K1, yo) 6 times, (K2tog) 3 times.
Row 2: K2tog, K14, K2tog.
Row 3: K2tog, K12, K2tog.
Row 4: Purl.Row 5: (K2tog) 3 times, yo, (K1, yo) 4 times, (K2tog) twice.
Row 6: K2tog, K10, K2tog.
Row 7: K2tog, K8, K2tog.
Row 8: Purl.

Row 9: K2tog, (K1, yo) 3 times, K1, (K2tog) twice.
Row 10: K2tog, K6, K2tog.
Row 11: K2tog, K4, K2tog.
Row 12: Purl.

Row 13: K2tog, K2, K2tog.
Row 14: (K2tog) twice.

Row 15: K2tog between each stitch marker, removing stitch markers as you pass them.

Cut yarn, leaving an 18-inch long tail. Thread yarn tail on needle, and run tail yarn through open loops of last row. Remove from knitting needle. Pull through again and secure. Use remainder of tail to sew up side. Weave in ends.


On size 10 needles, cast on 36 stitches.

Knit 4 rows.

Begin pattern repeat:

Row 1: (K2tog) 3 times, (K1, yo) 6 times, (K2tog) 6 times, (K1, yo) 6 times, (K2tog) 3 times.
Row 2: Knit.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: Purl.Continue pattern repeat until scarf is desired length.

Knit 3 rows, then bind off.  Cut tail and weave in ends.
