I introduce to you a collection of mitts & hats!
A set of mitts & hats for women & men, girls & boys, meant to showcase hand-spun or odd ball of left over novelty yarn hanging about.
Pattern features my usual gauge substitution chart for 3.25st to 6 sts = 1” thus making it an ideal pattern for handspun yarn! Mitts have narrow & wide thumb gussets for great fit, and… and…
… learn how to make a felted stuffed knitted bobble to top with!
Backstory: In recent posts I have been experimenting a lot with spinning rolags made from a blending board ~~ all blending board posts HERE ~~ and have discovered that the nature of this fun fiber blending art form, is small batches approx 40-100g. So this pattern was designed with the fruits of the blending boards in mind… or just any yarn you like!
Two patterns in one download:
Mitts= fingerless mitts, gauntlets, mittens
Hats = beanie (toque), and beret (tam)

Also I would like to say that this posting of Mitts & Hats represents the finish of a lot of work ~~ much of which was the discovery of blending boards! ~~ spinning ( oh yes, I fixed my wheel after a long hibernation), designing, and knitting. All of this blending, spinning & knitterly fun will continue as my forthcoming holiday knitting, where I hope to promote the mitts & hats in the Autumn months forthcoming with a cheery little stash-busting Mitt & Hat-along!
Great set to knit lots of gifts with this fall. Can’t wait for the official Hat & Mitt-along!
Me too, plan on knitting the mitts especially, out of all my hand-spun and sock yarn, for everybody on my gift list.
