Oh, I am so excited to release this lovely pair of patterns. They may be my favorites yet, The Pigwidgeon Hat and Mitts. They are available individually or as a pair!
As soon as I finished the Pigwidgeon Sweater, I knew I wanted to do at least a hat. Then, I decided I also wanted mitts. I thought it would be a great set of projects for someone who loves the owls, but doesn’t want to knit a whole fingering weight sweater for a child.
The hat comes in three sizes: Infant(approx 3-6m), Toddler, and Adult. More sizes could surely be had if one is comfortable with adjusting the gauge a little. Also, if you look at the gauge on the pattern page, it may seem a bit loose for the weight. The yarn used is a plump fingering weight and can handle this gauge no problem. If one wanted a tighter fabric, a sport weight could definitely be used at the same gauge.
I sort of chuckle a little when I see these pictures with all the snow. We had snow for 3 days, then it all melted and we are currently pretty much snow-less around here.
I adore the mittens as much as I adore the hat. Even though there are two to complete, I’ve always found that mittens knit up pretty quickly for me. I love the pattern on the back of the mittens, as well as the front. This pattern comes with instructions for 6 sizes: Child 2, Child 4, Child 6, Women’s Small, Women’s Medium, and Women’s Large. Phew, that was a lot of charting! Essentially, nearly the whole family could be decked out in owl-y mittens.
Well, thanks for stopping by and checking out my newest pair of patterns! I hope you enjoyed them. Please stop by their Ravelry pattern page and give them some love!
