An inviting mix of textures showcases a hand-dyed single ply yarn in this beret and fingerless mitt set. Holding two strands together allows the colors to blend seamlessly while creating a sturdier fabric. Warm your hands and your head with Hemiboreal as summer nights cool down and fall days bring colder temps.

Designed for the Yarnbox June Classic 2016 box.

Swatch both patterns carefully to ensure you can achieve the listed gauges in both stockinette and lace. You may need to use a different needle size for each gauge. If so, take care to knit the ribbing sections using the same needle you use for the stockinette sections.

If substituting a single strand of thicker yarn, the pattern uses approximately 325 yards, not including gauge swatches.
