Cat got your knitting? This sweet mitt and hat set makes a fun colorwork project and is a great gift for lovers of cats and kittens. Both the hat and mitts are worked in the round, keeping finishing to a minimum.
34 sts x 36 rows =4" in stst on size 2 US (2.75 mm) needles, or size needed to obtain gauge. Note that stranded colorwork tends to pull your knitting in, so it is suggested you go up a needle size for stranded rows. I.e., if you get gauge in plain stst using size 2 (2.75 mm) needles, use a size 3(3.25 mm) needle for the stranded rows.
I've been into DIY since I was little, but these days my main craft is knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was eleven, and after several years of neglect I picked it up again at university. When I can squeeze it around my day job, I love to come up with knitting patterns, you can check out what I've got in development over on my blog, www.studiomarlowe.com
