This cosy hat and mitts set will be perfect for spring walks and autumn days. The alpaca and wool blend yarn is lovely and soft, and the colourwork provides a double layer for extra warmth. Both hat and mitts have a stranded motif of pawprints, easy enough for a first colourwork project. They are worked in the round, so no need for sewing up afterwards. The hat and mitts come in three sizes and are quick to make, ideal for gift knitting.

The mitts are not sized with any negative ease, so they will be comfortable for the wearer.
