Worked in bold color combinations, or something more subtle, the pieces in this easy to knit set of accessories can be worked up quickly for yourself or as a gift.
The set includes a cap, boot toppers, fingerless mitts and a cowl. The hat, fingerless mitts and boot toppers are available in 4 sizes, while the cowl can be made in a short or long version. Each piece is provided in two variations. For either version of the hat, fingerless mitts and boot toppers, you’ll need only one hank in each color.
Create your own unique color combination from Oink Pigment’s unique colorways. For best results, make sure one of the colors is either a semi-solid color, or there is plenty of contrast between colors of both yarns.
