Kristin Nicholas Design


KP-Winter Wonderland Hats and Mittens

This easy project uses one strand of worsted weight Color by Kristin yarn held together with two strands of standard wool/nylon sock yarn for quick knitting. It is a perfect design to use up all your odds and ends. It will not matter if you mix colors together as the one base strand of worsted weight yarn will tie the project together.

This is the kind of project that I like to stockpile for winter gifts. The crocheted flowers add a feminine touch but the design is just as suitable for boys and men if you leave off the flower.

That's my daughter Julia modeling her very own set just after the crazy ice storm in December 2008. Behind her you can see all the vegetation covered with layers of ice.

Skill Level: For beginning knitters, includes French knot embroidery tutorial.
