PATTERN DETAILS

The Fiery Searcher Fingerless Mitts eBook includes two classic cables-and-lace designs by Bonnie Sennott. In this PDF, you get two knitting patterns--the Fiery Searcher Hat and the Fiery Searcher Fingerless Mitts--at a 20 percent savings! To make the mitts, you'll need 250 yards/229m fingering weight yarn and one set of US #2/2.75mm dpns.

The hat pattern provides instructions for knitting a women's size medium, which should fit heads measuring 20-25 inches/51-64 cm in circumference. For a smaller hat, go down a needle size and/or use a light fingering weight yarn. For a larger hat, go up a needle size and/or use sportweight or DK weight yarn. The hat is worked in the round on a circular needle. Double-pointed needles (dpns) are used on the crown. Skills required include standard knitting techniques and stitches, as well as cabling with a cable needle. The stitch patterns are given in both written form and in charts.
