My first pattern (well, patterns) for 2017 is here! This is the Fox River Hat and Mitt set, published by Sweet Georgia Yarns:
The set is knit in Sweet Georgia's Superwash DK yarn. This is some verrrrry lovely yarn. It's so squooshy and the stitch definition you get with it is amazing.
Both the hat and the mitts start with ribbing that flows seamlessly into the small lace pattern. The lace is created by making huge yarn overs - it was a blast to knit. After a few rounds of lace, it's time for a nice wide ribbing, giving the set a clean look.
The hat is written for three sizes and the mitts are written for one size. Both have great stretch though, meaning you can make a set for all your friends!
The Fox River Hat and Mitts are now available as a single pattern on Ravelry or on the Sweet Georgia website. You can also read a little more about the pattern in this post on the Sweet Georgia blog.
I hope you enjoy the set as much as I do!
