Even though it feels a lot like spring - 18 ° C today and more to come in the next couple of days - we are well into autumn and the colder season lies ahead. So the perfect time to start knitting on a new hat and mittens, don't you think?
The Boreal set, named for the coniferous forests of the northern hemisphere, uses a simple yet stunning colourwork motif to transition from one color to the other and back again. The colours are reversed between the hat and mittens not only for the effect, but also to make two skeins of worsted weight yarn sufficient for both items. The sample was worked in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in colourways Moorland and Thyme.
The Boreal pattern, previously published in Interweave Knits, is now available for individual purchase from my Ravelry store, here.
