FO: Hat and Glove Combo

Last Winter a friend who has a son in one of the other Kindergarten’s asked me to knit a hat and matching mittens for her son. I knitted both, and then realised that both the hat and the mittens were way too small. So, I started again.

I used this DROPS Design pattern, but amended it slightly. Mainly I left out the crochet edge and visor.

Another friend had give her the yarn, so I needed to find a pattern that would fit the yarn. She was keen to have a hat that would go over her son’s ears and for him to be able to close it.

For the mittens I used another DROPS Design pattern, and yes I know I am very predictable, always going back to their patterns, but they are simply brilliant!

My friend wanted to make sure her son wouldn’t lose the mittens, so she asked me to add a string, which is something we always had as kids and I’ve always done with Luke’s mittens.

After the initial disaster, both fit very well and my friend loved them.

And here are both in all their glory.
