Have been working on this pattern for a while. My friend’s daughter asked her for a hand knit item for a silent auction for Autism Awarenss. I decided to make and design a fingerless gloves and slouch hat set for the event.

I am pleased with it. Hope you will be too.

The Puzzle colorwork is done in duplicate stitch.
