There is a heat warning in Toronto right now, so it feels a bit funny to be thinking about cold weather accessories, but they are actually great projects to knit in the summertime. Hats and mittens are great portable projects to work on during a cottage weekend or a BBQ. They're small and make quick progress. Plus, when the cold weather arrives, you'll be prepared! If you are one of those magnanimous people who knits holiday gifts for people you love, making accessories in the summertime is a really smart move.
The graphic pattern is simple and adorable. I dig the earflaps. In red the little circles look a bit like tiny kisses.
When you get started on your fall and winter knitting, think about Pixel!
