NOTE

  • Please visit Knitting Daily’s website for a great tutorial on the Roositud colorwork technique used in this pattern. http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2012/02/... If you do not feel comfortable using this technique, you can use two strands of yarn to easily embroider the motif onto the hat and mittens once they are complete.
  • Hold yarn doubled when doing the Roositud inlay or embroidering the motif.
