PS732 Basic Hat & Mittens
Penny Straker Designs
Yarn: Worsted & Bulky Weight
Sizes: Caps & Mitts; Small, Medium & Large
This popular and practical pattern for a traditional cap is written for both worsted weight on #8 needles, and bulky weight on #10 needles. Many knitters have told me that it is their ‘go to’ pattern for fall and winter knitting for their families!
The four-needle mitts in worsted weight are easy to follow, even for beginners. And all knitters enjoy P.S. Pointers, little knitting lessons, which are included in the instructions. Seasoned knitters appreciate them, too, as we all love to add another tip to our ‘tool’ bags!
Be adventurous and add stripes of many colors, or a band of pattern just above the ribbed cuffs. Use a fabulous fiber – so soft in a luxurious alpaca & wool blend – elegant, too. Tough and warm in a sturdy worsted-spun wool, elegant in a mohair blend, or handsome and masculine in a tweed yarn. A must-have for your pattern library.
