Pattern Description:

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.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished mittens are each 10" long and about 8.5" in circumference.
  • The finished hat stretches easily to 21" in circumference (it's about 18" in circumference when relaxed).
