Lampwork Hat & Mitts
The Lampwork Hat and Mitts are a colorful, coordinating accessory set that both show off the same bright patterning. Worked in the same colors at different gauges, the hat uses Wool of the Andes Worsted and is worked as a simple beanie with ribbing at the brim while a deep chevron pattern transitions into what seems like panels of stained glass along the crown. The mitts use a lighter weight yarn with Wool of the Andes Sport and are worked identically except for thumb placement. Similar to the hat, the mitts are started with a wide ribbed cuff. Both the hat and mitts feature a colorful all over patterning where three strands of yarn are worked across a single row at times. Because the triple-stranded colorwork tends to make a less-stretchy fabric, the mitts are large through the palm and the pattern also includes tips on sizing. Whether you choose between the bright or neutral color palette, the Lampwork Hat & Mitts kit is sure to step up your colorwork to the next level!
Notions: a yarn needle, stitch markers, smooth scrap yarn, and extra DPNs or circular to pick up stitches for the thumb.
