Pattern also includes the hat.

A foamy lace edging lifts these simple accessories from plain to pretty. Together they work up fast, use just 100-150g of aran yarn, and suit anyone from toddlers to adults.

“Simple but special” also describes the techniques used. Three tutorials are included – for the crocheted-on provisional cast-on; for adding stitches to the long edge as you go (rather than picking them up later), which improves stretch and gives faster, smoother results; and for a non-curling picot cast-off.

Measurements: Finished wrist circumference: 12 (13, 16.5, 19) cm / 4.75 (5.25, 6.5, 7.5) in
Yarn requirements: 55 (58, 64, 67) m / 61 (64, 69, 74) yards of a warm, elastic aran-weight yarn.

Rating: PG: Some strong language.
Skills used: provisional cast-on (optional – tutorial provided), Kitchener stitch, working small circumference in the round, increasing, decreasing, simple lace (from chart or written instructions), picot cast-off (optional – tutorial provided).

Notes:
Both hat and mitts are begun with the lace edging, worked sideways and grafted to form a circle. Stitches for the body are created as you go along, rather than being picked up afterwards; besides being easier, this leaves no ridge and makes for greater flexibility.
