Perfect for your leftover bits and bobs of worsted weight yarn, the Simplicity Squared Hat and Mitts pair a main color with as many contrast colors as you would like!

Although they might appear difficult, these designs are actually quite simple. Using only one color at a time, slipped stitches give the appearance of stranded colorwork to create a checkerboard effect. Both designs begin with 1x1 Ribbing and are worked from bottom to top in the round. Complete the set for a colorfully trendy look this season!
