PATTERN NOTES
The Nutmeg Hat and Mitten set is perfect to keep you warm this holiday season. This pattern uses beautiful undyed wool that show off the cables perfectly. The neutral colors make this set easy to pair with any outfit.

This pattern uses the 1x1 long-tail tubular cast-on method for a neat edge. There are many tutorials available online for this technique. If in doubt, use another stretchy cast-on technique.

You may wish to place a stitch marker between each pattern repeat. Use a contrast color marker to distinguish the beginning of the round from pattern repeat markers.
