Looking for Soft? These colorwork alpaca/silk and angora cap 'n mittens are unbelievably yummy!
Some of you may have seen the first in my series of new colorwork hats 'n mitten kits (Nenya) … this set we named Narya, is made of the same soft / yummy new yarn from Lorna's Laces, called "Honor" and "Angel" (bunny fluff)!
The Narya Cap and Mitten set is the easiest knitting of the collection ... the cap is knit in the round using stockinette stitch with simple colorwork bands featuring an easy picot edge.
Included in each kit is 1 skein of Lorna's Laces' Honor (70% Baby Alpaca / 30% Silk: 275yds/100g) sport weight yarn and 1 skein of Lorna's Laces' Angel (70% Angora / 30% Lambswool: 50yds/14g) worsted weight yarn. Both kits contain the pattern and all materials needed to make each project.
Take a look at all three of my new colorwork hat and mitten projects ... they are fashionable accessories for intermediate to experienced knitters. The yarn is available in 6 wonderful color sets ... the pictures show the Narya cap and mittens in the color combo we called "Blue Iris". You'll love 'em!
