"I love the colorwork mittens … is there a matching hat?" You bet ! …

Did you see my "Winter Wonder" mitten pattern in the Classic Elite newsletter?  I am proud to have this design featured by Classic Elite … the pattern is available free at the Classic Elite website, or better yet, in my kit with just the right amount of yarn to make the mittens and the matching cap!

The Winter Wonder Cap 'n Mitten kit contains both the cap and the mitten pattern, along with 3 skeins of Classic Elite's soft Fresco yarn (go figure!).  Included are 2 colored skeins and 1 white skein of Fresco yarn ... the cap and the mittens each use one skein of the colored yarn, and 1/2 skein of white for the colorwork … so 3 skeins is the perfect amount of yarn for both projects! The Fresco yarn is an incredibly soft wool / baby alpaca / angora blend, but holds stitch definition well … perfect for colorwork!

You can choose from 6 colors of the fine weight Fresco yarn … the sample in the picture is knit from the "Sugar Blue/White" color combo, the mittens featured in the Classic Elite newsletter is the "Strawberry/White" color.

These patterns are an intermediate skill level, and are knit on size 2, 3 and 4 circular and double point needles.  Both the patterns have the instructions for two sizes.
If you have never done colorwork, here is your chance … a matched hat 'n mitten set at a great price!  More pictures and details on our FiberWild.com Project Ideas website page … take a look at my kitty Scout testing the mittens!
