This pretty hat and mitt set is accented with a lace pattern showing the first new leaves of spring pushing up from the soil. The leaves stand out against a background of reverse stockinette stitch. A few rows of ribbing at the bottom and top provide a snug fit. Two sizes are provided in the pattern: S/M and M/L. This set is the perfect project for that special skein of hand-dyed yarn. Finished Size of Mitts: Smaller size will fit a hand 17.5 - 20 cm (7- 8 inches) around. Larger mitts will fit a hand between 20-22.5 cm (8 - 9 inches) around. Mitts are 17.5 cm/7 inches long. Finished size of Hat: Hat pattern is written for S/M to fit an average sized teen/adult head - 45-50 cm (18-20 inches), and M/L for a larger head or looser fit - 50-58 cm (20-23 inches). Skills required: Simple lace, knitting in the round, increases and decreases. Pattern has been professionally tech edited.

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
