Houndstooth Hat & Mittens (Set)
Both the Houndstooth Hat & Houndstooth Mittens are now available as a set, at a special price of $7 - saving you $1 off each pattern!
These stylish, eye-catching hat & mittens set feature a classic houndstooth pattern that is sure to turn heads! They knit up quickly in chunky weight yarn, but will no doubt be a favourite winter accessory for many years to come. Since they are both knit in the round, there is no seaming, and you will always be working on the right side of the fabric. The stranded yarn on the wrong side of the fabric acts like a liner, creating a second layer for extra warmth.
The small pattern repeat of the houndstooth stitch has several advantages. It is easy to memorize, which means that you won’t need to slow down your progress by referring to the chart often. Since there are at most 3 consecutive stitches in the same colour, twisting the yarns is not really necessary until the crown decrease.
This set will no doubt be as fun to knit as they are to wear!
