Ysolda Cairn PDF
Stay cozy in stylish Cairn, a practical beanie and fingerless mitts set worked in two colors. Ysolda creates this interesting textured stitch pattern which helps keep you warm and is simply achieved with slip stitches – meaning that you’re only ever working with a single color per round.
The hat is given in four sizes, and the mitts in three so you can be sure of a perfect fit. The beanie is slightly long, perfect for pulling down over chilly ears or slouching further back on the head for slightly warmer days where fashion wins out over warmth.Sizes:
