Like a flame in the forest, a felted set of hat and mittens can warm the hands and head in the cold of winter.
Worked in an aran-weight 100% wool yarn, each piece works up quickly with a chevron stitch pattern. After washing in hot water and shrinking to your desired dimensions, each piece will be ready to wear once it has dried thoroughly.
Work the hat or the mittens as separate projects, perfect for gift giving. Or gift yourself with your own set, worked in your very favourite colours.
