Description

Inspired by the chullo hat style of Peru and the tapestry crochet techniques of many cultures, this duo is playful and warm. Using thinner yarn to crochet the fingerless gloves alleviates any bulk in the fingers, while a heavier yarn in the same colors makes a comfy, color-coordinated hat.
