Candy Darling is a colorwork hat and mittens set sure to keep you warm and cherry in all manner of winter weather. The hat begins with a provisional cast on. A ribbed folded brim is joined together, then the body is worked in stranded colorwork. There is enough yarn in each skein to make at least 3 hats. The pattern is written for three different brim colors with three chart options. 

The mittens begin with a provisional cast on. The outer mitten is worked in stranded colorwork. Once complete, the provisional cast on is removed and stitches are picked up to work the lining.
