What you need to know

Beginners will enjoy creating three unique head scarf designs using Lucinda Ganderton’s easy-follow knitting pattern

Made in gorgeous mercerised cotton DK yarn which gives these accessories a slightly shiny finish, this trio of headscarves by Lucinda Ganderton are perfect for protecting your head from the summer sun, and are ideal for festival season. You can knit all three from just four balls, making them perfect for a set of sisters or best friends. To make a scarf for a little girl, simply stop knitting when the triangle gets to the correct size for a smaller head. There are two easy stripe knitting patterns and one Fair Isle flower pattern.

Top knit tip

Knitting stripes is a quick, fun way to create a graphic pattern. If you’d like more of a challenge, try Briar with its checks and intarsia floral design.
