The twisted stitch pattern on this hat and glove set is inspired by the foliage of the sitka spruce of the Pacific Northwest. The stitch pattern is given as a 15-stitch, 27-row chart. It is worked on the back of the mitten (with stockinette on the palm and thumb) and around the top of the hat. The mittens are sized for adult S (M, L) with finished measurements around the palm of 7 (7.75, 8.5)". The hat can be made either as the beret shown or as a fitted beanie. Either fits adult head measurements of 20-22". The hat and mittens can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Tin Can Knits.
