Matching sets aren’t just for garments – we love them for accessories, too! The Asher Set is a contemporary ensemble of a uniquely-shaped shawl and classic pom pom hat. The richly textured Diamond Lattice motif decorates the plush fabric created by lovely Posh Alpaca – a yarn perfect to craft pieces for luxury lounging. While you’re working from home or reading a book, wrap the Asher Shawl around your shoulders. When you’re ready for your coffee run, keep the shawl, but grab the hat and set off to your favorite café.

PATTERN NOTES The Asher shawl is knit in pieces from the center out – working from the widest edge to the point. Each half of the shawl is worked flat, then the two are seamed together at the cast-on edges. A single crochet border is applied around each edge of the shawl for a tidy finish.
The Asher hat is knit in the round from the bottom up. A pom pom is attached during finishing.
