The Boreal set, named for the coniferous forests of the northern hemisphere, uses a simple yet stunning colourwork motif to transition from one color to the other and back again. Reverse the colors between the hat and mittens for a gorgeous effect.

Hat and mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up.
