Oak leaves is a set containing a hat, a cowl and fingerless mitts (3 patterns) with stranded colorwork in three colors featuring delicate oak leaves and acorns. The acorns are added afterwards using duplicate stitch. It is perfect to work up some small leftovers. Tips on colorwork and duplicating stitches are included.

The Oak leaves cowl is double layered for extra warmth. It is worked bottom up starting with a provisional cast on that will be unraveled in the end to graft both layers together. It comes in two sizes: small and large. The sample is the small size with a diameter of 65 cm / 24½”. The large size is a long loop double the length (130 cm / 49”). It can be worn as is or you can double it around your neck for extra coziness and warmth.
