Sweets for the sweet! This little hat and sock set makes the most of a fiber with beautiful drape. The “frosting layers” are picot hems that are knitted right on to each other, so finishing is minimal. The socks are knitted from cuff down. They feature a turned hem with a ribbed cuff, a traditional heel flap and gussets so that the socks fit snugly.For convenience and precision, pattern sizes are listed in head and leg circumferences, rather than age groups. An heirloom that will be passed down from daughter to daughter, this set is a loving gift to treasure. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round pick up and knit stitches GAUGE 28 sts and 36 rows = 4" in Stockinette Stitch Work gauge swatch in the round for accuracy SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Hat: Small (15½"), Medium (17¼"), Large (19¾") Socks: Small (5¼"), Medium (5¾"), Large (6½")

The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .
