Child's Hat, Mitts & Snood Set

£4.00
shown in Rhubarb/Peppermint

Just 2 skeins of yarn goes a long way in this hat, mitts and snood set.   Using the contrast colours gives a lovely touch to this fun and quick accessories set.

All the projects are knitted in the round which saves yarn and also saves having bulky seams which aren't great at the best of times, but definitely not in smaller kids' garments.

The hat shown will stretch to fit any size head, but the snood and mitts really are only for a child (I would recommend up to age 12)

All you need is 2 contrasting skeins of Plump yarn and a pdf download of the pattern which you can select from the tab above.  

You will also need 10mm double pointed needles.  Colours shown Sugared Almond (MC) and Rhubarb Crumble (CC)

 

Plump is a pretty standard superchunky (super bulky) weight and can be substituted as such.

Ballband Tension (gauge):

Using 10mm needles over stocking stitch: 10 sts to every 10cm

We have used it on many different needle sizes from 8mm to 20mm according to the structure and drape of fabric we want to produce. The larger the needle, the looser the fabric will be.

Washing
Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Shedding
Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at info@mrsmoon.co.uk

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
