The combination of three stitch patterns--textured little waves, brioche, and a stockinette cable--makes this hat and fingerless gloves interesting to knit and stylish to wear. Because there is no difference in row gauges, the cable pattern is a bit longer and forms an attractive “dip” along the edge. This design demonstrates how to adapt multiple patterns for working harmoniously in the round. Pay close attention to the details and be sure to work separate charts for the two gloves.
