Petiole ˈpe-tē-ˌōl noun
- the stalk by which a leaf is attached to a stem
There comes a point every winter where I have to face facts and acknowledge that it has gotten cold. Not brisk, not chilly – cold. The sort of cold where it’s irresponsible to go out without a proper coat. I put it off as long as I can every year, but it always happens eventually.
This year’s realization came as I was planning a little getaway. I thought a new hat might soften the blow. I cast on the afternoon before I left, finished in the car the next day, blocked it overnight on the hotel’s ice bucket, and wore it all during the trip. I had just enough yarn left over to eek out a pair of tiny matching wrist warmers.
The pattern is written in 4 sizes and includes the hat and the mitts. The final size depends on your gauge and quite adjustable. Hat sizes range from 12 to 27 inches (at the brim), mitt sizes range from 4 to 9 inches (at the cuff).
