Matching hat and fingerless mitts in a simple stranded color-work pattern. The mitts are worked with an afterthought thumb to keep the color-work pattern on the palm simple. The hat is worked with the yarn doubled for a little extra warmth and the added bonus of knitting up quickly.
Hat - 19 sts = 4" in color-work pattern on larger needles, with yarn doubled.
Mitts - 8 sts = 1' in color-work pattern on larger needles.
