Almost "Fetching" and hat to match

I made these fingerless mittens for another GD who is turning 12 on the 13th. I made the Dashing mitts for her sister last month. I didn’t like the way the Fetching mitts were done around the palm edge, so just did a K2, P2 rib, and put it on the thumb too.

Then I did a hat to match. The yarn is Wool-Ease rose heather. I repeated the idea of lots of cables but made the mitts and hat out of one skein, so I couldn’t use as much yarn as it would have taken to make them so small. Also only a few days until the birthday so I used a bigger needle for the hat. Actually a 4 for the ribbing and a 6 for the rest.

I wanted to use the K4, P1 rib that was on the gloves and just winged it on how to decrease at the top. On my first decrease I eliminated every other purl stitch. Then lined the decreases up there. Later when I came to where the other purl stitch was slated to go, I started purling 2tog instead of K2tog that I used at first. Came out kind of interesting on top.

We have a lot of new snow. Hat and mitts model or avalanche victim?

wow! they’re really nice. I love the way you took those photos too.

They look really good. Love the color.

Those are adorable… I like the little twisty braid on the hat. Good colors too.

I like yours MUCH better than the original! They both look great!

Those are really nice, and the colour is great :mrgreen:

Looks great - good job!!!:hug:

They look awesome! I love the matching set and your model! :teehee:

beautiful and very creative!:cheering:

Beautiful! I just love it.

They are beautiful! I agree with you about the edge on the Fetchings – they didn’t keep the backs of my hands warm, so I reworked them with some decreases and then used a normal bind-off instead of the picot bind-off. But I like your idea of using ribbing a lot – maybe I’ll do that next time. I love the way you worked the decreases on the hat. Thanks for explaining how you did it. She’s going to love this set!

What a beautiful set…I love them. They will make a wonderful gift!
Thanks for sharing…

I’m always amazed when someone says, “I winged it.” (I’m one of those follow-a-pattern girls.) Your hat and mitts turned out absolutely perfect!!! I’m so impressed.

Very lovely! I love the whole set! I am voting for an avalanche victim.:roflhard:

Very nice :slight_smile:
