Free Pattern Friday: Knit Night Hat and Camp Out Fingerless Mitts
It's nice to have coordinated sets of knitwear. I often find myself in a mishmash of odd pieces, that while warm, don't always create a stylish image. From one ball of Malabrigo Rios yarn, and less than one hundred yards of Elsebeth Lavold Favorite Wool, I knit both the Knit Night Hat, and the Camp Out Fingerless Mitts.
The hat pattern runs big, a good thing for me because I have a large head. The mitts pattern is fun because it uses a few special techniques: the provisional cast-on, and the 3-needle bind off, that make it interesting. It made my thrifty heart sing to use the leftover Rios to trim the mitts, since the yarn is so special.
