This hat and mitten set is quick and easy to knit! Find a fun novelty yarn to work into the cuffs of both the hat and mittens--the more textured, the better! Because the main part of the hat and mittens is knitted with two worsted weight yarns held together as one, you can achieve a mottled color effect with two differently colored yarns and your results will be extra warm and cozy.
In stockinette stitch using 2 strands of worsted weight held together, 3 stitches/ 4 rows = 1 inch.
