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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, make 1, knit two together, slip slip knit cabling two stitches over two others, duplicate stitch, grafting, blocking GAUGE 3.25 st./in. and 4 rows/in. in stockinette stitch.
