For Christmas I knit my mom and sisters hats and matching fingerless mitts. Above is my mother modeling her hat in teal. I asked my mom and sisters early on what colors they wanted for “mystery holiday knitting.” My mom and sister Kirsten both wanted teal/turquoise, but I chose a saturated color for my mom (Heritage Sock Yarn by Cascade Yarns) and a soft color way for my sister (Mini Mochi).
The pattern I chose for the hat is Elizabeth Pedersen’s Boardwalk hat. I took some liberties with the yarn and used sock yarn to make it look lacier! The mitts are my own design (my first!) and I used the lace pattern from the hat to make them match. Aren’t they cute?
I’ve been keeping these items a secret for so long, it was driving me CRAZY! I’m so glad to see them with the loved-ones I made them for!
