Trefoil is a cabled winter hat and mitten set with an elegant three pointed celtic knot on the crown and a single leaf of the knot mirrored on each mitten. The knot is framed by arching stockinette and trimmed with stretchy i-cord edging.

Hat and mittens are both knit from the top down and bound off with stretchy i-cord edging (directions included in the pattern) The trickiest bit of cabling comes in the first rounds of the hat where stitches are moved every row to create the center of the knot. Once you’re past that it’s smooth sailing to the bottom edge.

Thanks to the Twist team for such lovely photography and their superior technical editing!
