Pattern Description:

One of the best parts of winter is curling up in front of a roaring fire and forgetting all about the cold weather lying in wait outside. This toasty hat and mitt set evokes the flames of a winter fire with an oversized cable motif flickering up each piece. Two options are provided for the hat: a loose tam or a more fitted hat. Chunky weight yarn ensures that these accessories will be especially warm, acting as a small portable substitute for the warm blaze awaiting you at home.

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,
