Pattern Description:

Crisp fall hikes and cool evenings around the campfire call for a cozy set like this. Tolt is an outdoorsy pair of fingerless mitts and a toasty hat that look great on both men and women, worked in stockinette with ribbed cuffs for a snug fit. It's a perfect pattern for those new to color work, too.

The stranded color work pattern takes inspiration from the wending currents of the Tolt River, which was the site of an important salmon run that helped sustain the native Snoqualmie people.
