****IMPORTANT NOTE: This listing is for two PDF patterns to make the items pictured, not the finished items. Please read the listing carefully; no refunds will be given on digital downloads.****
This close-fitting hat and bulky mitten set is worked with either a heavy worsted yarn held double or a super-bulky yarn. The daisy motif is a little fiddly to work, but only for two rounds—and after that, the rest goes really quickly!
Both patterns are included in the instant digital download if you purchase this set. The hat and mitten patterns are also available to purchase separately in my Etsy store.
SIZES: One size, to fit average woman.
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Hat: circumference is approximately 20 inches (53 cm); Mitts: palm circumference is approximately 8 inches (20 cm).
YARN: Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool (100% wool; 478 yds/437 m per 250g skein); color 8049; 1 skein to make both hat and mitts.
Yarn substitution note: the recommended yarn is an Aran/heavy worsted weight. When held double, it works up to a super-bulky yarn. For the hat, you will need about 160 yards (122 meters) of Aran/heavy worsted weight yarn or 80 yards (61 meters) of super-bulky weight yarn. For the mittens, you will need about 170 yards (130 meters) of Aran/heavy worsted weight yarn or 85 yards (65 meters) of super-bulky yarn.
