With cold weather bearing down on many of us, warm mittens and hats become very appealing projects and gifts. Lana d'Oro is a wonderful yarn that combines the softness from alpaca with the behavior of wool.
Fair Isle motifs go vertical in this winter set. The hat is shaped at the top by means of equally spaced decreases. The hemmed brim adds extra warmth at the lower edge. Mittens are worked as a traditional Northern manner, with thumb gussets and a shaped top. Small checks decorate the palm; the hemmed cuff repeats the hat’s silhouette.
