’The effective Fair Isle pattern used for this delightful set is very easy to follow. Gloves and cap are both knitted on four needles. A Fair Isle pattern is particularly hard wearing as it gives the strength of double knitting.’

Measurements: Round lower edge of cap about 18 inches; depth from centre of crown 4.5 inches.
