The cowl is worked in both directions, beginning with a provisional cast-on, and grafted closed; the cowl is shaped using several sets of yarn-over short rows. The brim of the hat is worked in the same manner as the cowl, and then stitches are picked up along the edge of the brim for the crown, which is worked in the round to the top. The mittens are worked in the round from a provisional cast-on; the i-cord cuff is picked up and worked from this cast-on to complete the mittens. The cable patterns are presented in both chart form and row-by-row instructions.
