This Cowichan-inspired kit includes yarn and the pattern for matching hats and mittens in four sizes: Small Child (Large Child, Medium to Large Adult, Extra-Large Adult). Based on the wonderful sweaters knitted by the Coast Salish people, these mittens and hats incorporate motifs used in some of the traditional pullovers and cardigans. The pattern has Theory Boxes on how to weave the stranded yarns English style and how to avoid the purl bump when changing colors in ribbing. The pattern also includes charts, a List of Abbreviations, and a Bibliography.
If you only want to make the mittens OR the hat, order the small sized kit–3 skeins.
Kits for hat AND mittens include: S: Small child (18 months to 4 years)- 3 skeins M: Large Child (4 years to Adult Small)- 4 skeins L: Large (Medium to Large Adult)- 4 skeins XL: Extra-Large (Extra-Large Adult)- 4 skeins
The yarn used is a blend of 15% mohair and 85% wool and approximates the weight used for the traditional Cowichan sweaters. The colors are in the brown range, Sandy Heather, Sable, and Cream. Knitted at 14 stitches per 4 inches, these projects are quick and fun to make! All you need is a set of US size 10.5 double pointed needles and a 16" circular needle, stitch markers, a stick holder, and a tapestry needle.
