Want a quick and satisfying project? This hat and mittens will do the trick! Together, they use no more than 90 yds/80 m in the main color and no more than 75 yds/65 m in the contrast color. Each of the hat and the mittens patterns is available separately.
The idea for this set arose because I was smitten with some lovely grey and charcoal heathered Lopi. I knew the colors would look amazing on my Daddy. So, after a bit of swatching of striped owls, the hat and mittens were born. The owl has a textured breast that is flanked by wingfeathers, and the owl's feet are visible.
3.25 st./in. and 4 rows/in. in stockinette stitch.
170 yards of Bulky weight

I'm a math professor by trade, and (unsurprisingly) my designs are informed by mathematical concepts. I co-edited the books Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects and Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics with my colleague and friend Carolyn Yackel. You can find out more than you ever wanted to know about me and my way-too-many interests (including my ex-cat, socially responsible investing, dance, feminist philosophy of science,...) at my website.View all patterns by designer (17) »
