As temperates slowly start dropping, the time for cozy and soft handknits has finally come! So, time to get prepared, no? After the Frost Beret is part of a matching set, along with the After the Frost Mitts, and two skeins of Knit Picks Gloss Fingering are just enough to make them both. The mitts are worked from the wrist outwards into both directions, using a provisional cast on. A simple cable pattern covers the underarm and a picot bind-off at both ends sets a lovely accent. The same cable pattern is used for the brim of the hat. Again, it(tm)s a provisional cast-on, and both ends of the brim are grafted together with the kitchener stitch. Then stitches are picked up along each side of the brim to finish the picot edging and the rest of the hat. Both pieces knit up quickly and will keep you entertained while working on them. They(tm)re also a great chance to pick up on a new skill. Did you always want to learn how to graft? How to do a provisional cast-on? Were you afraid of cables until now or would you like to learn two different ways to do a picot edging? If you can answer any of these questions with yes, this set was just waiting for you. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY provisionally cast on, knit, purl, work simple cables and decreases, yo, kitchener stitch grafting GAUGE 13 stitches and 19 rows = 2 inches in stockinette stitch, blocked SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 21 [53 cm] circumference and 8 [20 cm] from picots to top, but this beret is very stretchy and slouchy.
