One of the best parts of winter is curling up in front of a roaring fire and forgetting all about the cold weather lying in wait outside. This toasty hat and mitt set evokes the flames of a winter fire with an oversized cable motif flickering up each piece. Two options are provided for the hat: a loose tam or a more fitted hat. Chunky weight yarn ensures that these accessories will be especially warm, acting as a small portable substitute for the warm blaze awaiting you at home.
Skills required beyond knit and purl include increasing, decreasing, cables (instructions are charted).
Each piece pictured is knit using one strand of Knitpicks Gloss DK held together with two strands of Knitpicks Aloft. Thiscombinations of yarn translates to roughly a chunky weight yarn, knitting to 14 sts per 4?(10 cm) in stockinette stitch.
