This matching set of a Beanie and long, Fingerless Gloves is just what you need for the cold, frosty weather. Choose any 3 shades of a Double Knitting yarn to blend together and form a textured ombre.

The Beanie and Gloves feature 5 distinct sections: as the colours blend together, each section is longer than the previous section, to produce a gradual, blending effect.

Both are made using Tunisian Crochet worked in the round, creating a honeycomb texture and appearance, and the thumb extension on the Gloves is worked flat and then seamed.
