The set is a modern and fun take on matching accessories. Both items use a geometric pattern in stranded knitting to change from one colour to the other. The motifs are different, yet similar enough to create a matching set and for a more playful look the yarns are used in reversed order for the second item.

The hat and mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up. To accommodate the tighter fit of the colourwork parts, these parts are worked using larger needles.

The mittens use an afterthought thumb. Both mittens are worked the same.
