This beautiful collection of a matching beret, cowl and mittens form the Winter Warmer's collection and has been created by OneHandKnits especially for The Yarn Cafe. It is available as an online download.The patterns have associated charts.
The beret's cabled brim is worked back and forth first then joined together to form a platform for the plaited crown which is worked bottom-up in the round - rated as easy. It is a slouchy beret and features a cabled brim and plaited crown and can be knitted in small (41-56cm/16-22 inches head circumference) and large (56-71cm/ 22-28 inches head circumference) sizes. Both sizes are 25cm deep (around ten inches).
The mittens are knitted first as a back and forth cabled cuff, which is then joined together to allow the glove section to be knitted in the round. These are flip-top mittens which can be worn open - rated as moderately difficult. The pattern has been designed for one size (25cm or 10 inches long and up to 23 cm or 9 inches wide around the widest part of the hand), but can be resized.
The cowl is knitted in the round and requires no seaming - suitable for beginners. The pattern has been designed for one size (22.5cm or 8.75 inches deep) but the size can be amended.
The pattern is downloadable in pdf format and can be viewed using Adobe pdf reader. A copy of this software is available at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/.
