From Interweave Knits, Fall 2003:

This lively hat and mitten set is a perfect example of tweaking tradition for an unexpected  and stunning effect.  The hat top is shaped like a traditional tam and combines Fair Isle technique with Scandinavian motifs and Estonian braid.  But instead of using the muted hues of the Hebrides or the bright primary colors of Scandinavia, Rebecca has worked the hat in a warm, spicy Indian palette.  The mittens borrow motifs from the hat, but the stars worked for the head and the hand are subtly different form each other.  Knit this pair in the colors shown here, or choose your own not-so-usual palette.
