Twegen is a hat and fingerless mitten set. Its doughnut segments flow in and out of one another, creating a continuous web on the stocking stitch ground. The hat’s crown flows effortlessly from the main stitch pattern below, bringing the contrast colour to converge at a point.
With a smidge of negative ease and a thumb gusset, the Twegen mitts are perfect for keeping fingers toasty on brisk autumn mornings.
