This matching hat and mitten set uses a rich basketweave cable to make a sturdy fabric – perfect for guarding against Winter winds while worn. We chose to make them in a deep red – because everyone needs at least one red accessory in their wardrobe! It’s the perfect pop of color to add to an outfit of grey or neutral tones. If you’re not the type to wear matching accessories, the set is a great way of knocking two holiday gifts off your list as well… make one, or both—knitter’s choice.
