Kristen TenDyke - Autumn Oak Hat & Mitts

  Autum Oak Hat & Mitts  
  These mitts are my go-to mitts. I've made countless pairs of them for myself and as gifts. They work up beautiful in a wide variety of yarns. This pair is made using the Julia Child color of Miss Priss by Schaefer Yarn Co. After making the mitts, I had plenty of yarn leftover, so I made a matching hat. There may even be enough yarn for a small scarf or a cowl too.

The patterns are written to be worked back and forth in rows—because I find the brioche stitch pattern is more fun to work back and forth, than in the round. But I've included alteration instructions for how to work the pattern in the round for those who would prefer it.
