This is the mitten pattern entry for my Simply Harika pattern, which has been popular as a hat. I originally tried to keep the hat and mittens as one pattern, but have learnt that for the database to work properly, there needs to be a separate entry for each type of pattern. The downloadable documents for both are the same.

This stranded hat and matching mitten pattern is provided in two yarn weights -- sport weight and fingering weight. The Ravelry system only allows for the choice of one yarn weight when adding patterns to the system, however, both sport weight and fingering weight charts are included. Please note that some of the charts are quite wide, and you may need to adjust the margins on your printer. I did this to get the largest chart possible. If your margins aren’t set right, part of the pattern will be missing.

The sport weight charts are intended to be knit at 27-28st/4”, and the fingering weight at 30-32st/4”.

These hat and mittens combine Turkish motifs commonly found in woven items.A tutorial for hat and mitten construction is included. The mitten tutorial further includes instruction on customizing the fit of your mitten, various optional elements and charts for the palm of the mittens, and how to convert any hat panel into mittens.

There are multiple options included in the pattern, which is primarily charted, but does include some written instruction. There are charts for both a sport weight hat and mittens, as well as multiple charts for fingering weight hats and mittens. I have also included the patterns as “All on One Page” variations, so that only the single page need be printed. The total pattern, excluding the separate hat and mitten tutorial, is 13 pages.
