This pretty hat and mitts set is perfect for spring and summer, when you just need something light for the evenings. Both the hat and the mitts are knitted in the round, with a little delicate cable panel that can be worked either from the chart or the written instructions.

This issue is on sale from 28th May from supermarkets and newsagents across the UK and from the Knit Now website. It is also available digitally here.
