I'm really excited about our new Horseshoe Cable Hat & Wristlet Kit! We've got a bunch of hat and mittens kits, but this is our first hat and wristlet kit! Wristlets are fun, fast to knit - and you don't have to take them off to send a text message!
These wristlets are knit in the round. There is a cable in the center with patterning on either side, and the hat has a matching cable pattern. The band of the hat is knit first, and then you pick up stitches and knit the top.
The kit includes Mountain Colors Alpaca Blend yarn, a yummy blend of alpaca and wool available exclusively at FiberWild! The kit comes in four colors, Bozemill Spring (blue/green), Sugared Violet, Cedar and Ruby River. My favorite of the four color choices is Bozemill Spring, a new FiberWild! exclusive color inspired by a magical location in the Mark Twain National Forest. If you like the Bozemill Spring color, be sure to check it out in two other Mountain Colors yarns; Winterlace Jr and Crazyfoot!
Kits make great Christmas gifts - especially when non-knitters are shopping. Don't be shy - send them link to this page and they will get the hint!
Thanks to Jillian and the whole crew at Knitty for the review of our new kit in the new winter edition of Knitty!
