The Valley Yarns Designer Series Arctotis Kit includes the
PDF pattern download and the 5 balls of Amherst yarn needed to knit these cabled
accessories in your choice of Juniper, Jungle Green, or Regatta Blue.
Note: Kit includes enough yarn to make any combination of hat and mitt sizes, up to the XL hat and L mitts.
The Arctotis hat and fingerless mitts from Tian Connaughton combine horizontal
rib with vertical cables for accessories that are rich with texture. These
stitches pop in the smooth and soft Valley Yarns Amherst, whose cozy softness
makes it a perfect choice for next to the skin items. Both pieces are worked
seamlessly in the round beginning with ribbed trims before transitioning to
their cable and texture patterns and special details like mirrored cables elevate
them to the next level.. The hat finishes with stockinette stitch for simple crown
shaping and the mitts feature thumb gussets for a superb fit. Stitch patterns
are both charted and written out.
