This pattern includes three coordinating projects: matching Spiral Twill Mittens, a Spiral Basketweave Hat and matching Spiral Basketweave Mittens.

Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “These spunky sets knit up quickly in stitch patterns that resemble woven twill and basketweave. Combining two yarns adds visual interest. Both hats are worked downward from the I-cord “knot,” and the crowns are shaped with spiral increases. The twill hat fits like a beret and is edged with I-cord that is worked as the body stitches are bound off. Looser fitting, the basketweave hat has a rolled edge. Both mitten styles are ambidextrous.”
