Notes

The celtic hat of my dreams. I may finally be done playing with tri cornered knots, but don’t quote me on that! I love how the mittens reflect the hat, but aren’t exactly the same.

Making the cuffs of the mittens longer would be easy, since they’re knit from the top down, just keep knitting until they’re long enough for your tastes.

I absolutely LOVED working with this yarn, the stitch definition is divine. Getting it in the mail a mere week after Quince started business was pretty nice too.

If you’re having trouble getting gauge - Block It. Due to the increases in the cables of the crown of the hat the whole thing will need to be stretched horisontally just a touch during blocking for the fabric to lay flat.
