Description
These spunky sets knit up quickly in stitch patterns that resemble woven twill and basketweave. Combining two yarns adds visual interest. Both hats are worked downward from the I-cord "knot," and the crowns are shaped with spiral increases. The twill hat fits like a beret and is edged with I-cord that is worked as the body stitches are bound off. Looser fitting, the basketweave hat has a rolled edge. Both mitten styles are ambidextrous.
