Taking its inspiration from the bold geometric motifs found in mid-century textile and ceramic homewares, this set gives the options of a slouch beanie or folded brim bobble hat and matching long mitts with shaped thumb. Using a smaller than usual needle for the yarn and stranded colourwork gives extra warmth and crisp contrasts.
Skills required: tubular cast on (optional), knitting in the round, stranded colourwork, reading a colourwork chart.
You will need:
1-2 skeins Kate Davies Buachaille in MC (samples use colourway Haar for Bobble hat and Squall for Beanie)
1-2 skeins Kate Davies Buachaille in CC (samples use colourway Hedder for Bobble hat and Furze for Beanie)
Yarn requirements for different combinations:
Beanie: 1 skein MC, 1 skein CC (1 skein MC, 1 skein CC)
Bobble: 2 skeins MC, 1 skein CC (2 skeins MC, 1 skein CC)
Mitts: 1 skein MC, 1 skein CC (1 skein MC, 1 skein CC)
Bobble & mitts: 3 skeins MC, 2 skeins CC (3 skeins MC, 2 skeins CC)
Beanie & mitts: 2 skeins MC, 2 skeins CC (2 skeins MC, 2 skeins CC)*
