Caracollo Hat and Mitts by Rachel C. Brown

THE HAT is worked from the bottom up. For the crown decreases, stitch markers are placed to marked the columnar rib motifs, and the stitches are decreased between adjacent columns. When most of the intervening stitches have been decreased, the rib motif itself is decreased.

THE MITTS are worked in the round from the cuff up with a thumb gusset. When the thumb gusset is finished, the thumb stitches are placed on a holder and the hand is worked before returning to the thumb to knit the ribbing.

The perfect yarn for this project...
