Firebirds Hat Set
Beret – Circumference 64.5cm. Brim to crown 26cm.
Fingerless Gloves – Width around knuckles 19.3[20.7, 22]cm.
The Firebirds Hat Set is composed of a beret and one pair of fingerless gloves in Alice Starmore Hebridean 2 Ply. The set is worked in the stranded circular technique. If you are new to this technique then there is a graded progression you can follow, starting with the beret which introduces double decrease shaping in the patterned crown. The fingerless gloves will teach you how to make thumb gussets and how to work each digit in the round.
This kit includes a colour-printed patterncard with full instructions and all the yarn required to make the Firebirds Hat Set. The beret is made in one size and instructions for the gloves are provided in three sizes. Enough yarn is provided in the kit to make the largest size of gloves. The Firebirds design is also available as a cardigan.

The Firebirds design was inspired by the jewel like colours of an opulent summer garden set against a rich background of greens. The flamboyant firebirds dance first one way and then the other above a deep rib. This design is more challenging, and is intended for an intermediate knitter as the chart pattern requires occasional weaving in over long stretches.
