Item details

This knitting pattern combo includes the patterns for the Saxon Braid Cap and its matching Saxon Braid Reversible Cabled Scarf. Buy together and save on this 19-page pdf file!

This pdf cap pattern has a Saxon Braid cable, knitted as a long strip and grafted together in pattern (grafting instructions included). Stitches are then picked up along each long edge of the cable strip and the crown and lower edge of the cap are knitted onto the strip. There are three options for the edging of the hat’s brim: a garter stitch edge, a rolled edge, and a new technique which I call a braided bind-off.

The pattern instructions include both charted and written instructions for the cabled strip, and written instructions for the rest of the cap. There is also a technique section with specific instructions and lots of pictures illustrating how to graft the beginning of the strip to the last row of knitting.

Patons Classic Wool, 1 skein in desired color
Size 8 circular and double-point needles
Cable needle (optional), yarn needle and safety pin-type stitch marker

This cap will fit most adult heads. When flat, it measures 11 inches across lower edge (22 inch circumference), but will stretch to over 13 inches (26 inch circumference). From crown to brim measures 7 ½ to 9 inches, depending on the edging used.

16 sts= 4" and 23 1/2 rows = 4" in stockinette st

This 9-page pdf pattern is for a knitted scarf with a cabled pattern on both the front and back. The scarf has a Saxon Braid cable on one side, and a slightly different cable on the other. This pattern is a result of a series of experiments with reversible cables, and of an “a-ha!” moment after much playing around. I have not seen another reversible cable pattern quite like it (Of course, some knitter somewhere has undoubtedly discovered this before me!!).

The pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the reversible cable, as well as a Technique Feature with a photo-illustrated tutorial on turning cables without a cable needle.

Patons Classic Wool yarn or comparable worsted weight yarn of your choice, 1 skein
Size 10 needles
Cable needle, if used

4 ½ inches wide by 80 inches long

In stockinette stitch, 16 sts = 4 inches; 21 rows = 4 inches.

The pattern is intended for the personal use of the purchaser, and is not meant to be used commercially.
