Little waves swirl around and around when you knit this hat and fingerless mittens set. You can choose to create waves spiraling in the opposite direction for one of the mitts so they are mirror images of one another.
The hat band and cuffs are created by holding two strands together to make a sturdy fabric. Then when you begin the lace, drop one of the strands to make a supple, drapey fabric that slouches wonderfully when worn. The increases—which are required, to change the stitch count for the lace—make clever use of the double strands from the band.
This set is a real showpiece for hand-dyed yarns with analogous colourways.
