This hat & mitts combo is the perfect answer to the question: what to knit? It’s a soothing pattern and makes a comfy finished object.
Finished Measurements: Small/medium (large/extra large): 4 (4.75)”/10 (12) cm across hand (measured above base of thumb but below knuckles) unstretched; both sizes are approximately 7″/18 cm from cast-on to bind-off edge.
Yarn: approximately 140 (160) yards/129 (147) m worsted-weight yarn. I used Knitted Wit Targhee Worsted in Coral Cove (pink/brown set), Purple Dragon (yellow/purple set), and Juniper (green set).
Needles: US7/4.5mm needle for smallish- circumference knitting, or size needed to get gauge. I recommend using a 32″/60 cm or 40″/80 cm circular for magic loop.
Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch marker.
Gauge: 18 sts & 36 Rs = 4″/10 cm in garter stitch, worked flat, measured after blocking.
