City Park Duo
Named for a walk through the park, these eye-catching fingerless gloves and slouchy hat are made for autumn: textured ribbed edges, tweed yarn, and warm wool. Knitters of all levels can follow along to a simple 5-stitch rib repeat while creating two quick-knits.

The hat and gloves are knit in the round, bottom-up, with simple thumb finishing on the gloves. Three pages of PDF instructions include abbreviated written and charted instructions.
