A slouchy beret-ish style hat and fingerless mitts featuring stranded colorwork leaves and a linen stitch border. These patterns are sold as a set – one price for both! The hat is written for one size that should fit most adult heads. The linen stitch keeps the brim from getting stretched out and the larger-gauge stranded colorwork in the body of the hat adds so much warmth!
When working linen stitch, you’ll notice that the fabric is *much* tighter than normal stockinette or rib. It may seem tight during the knitting but once you block, the Malabrigo Twist softens slightly and everything seems to let out a sigh – as if it too wanted to loosen up a bit.
