M got this cute pea coat from Lauren and Paul and didn’t have any hats or mittens to match. I decided to knit them for her out of some Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride I had leftover from another project. The hat was finished awhile ago, but I just finished up the mittens last week. You can’t tell in the picture, but I had to finish the cuffs with a little bit of black. Both were knit top down and it’s a good thing, too. The hat fits perfectly, but I bound off the mittens a little too tight. They work now, but next year I’ll probably have to redo the edge so they slip over her hands. I knit both of these a little big and I hope she gets another winter season out of them.
