This kit includes a colour-printed patterncard with full instructions and all the yarn required to make the Oregon Spring Hat Set. Enough yarn is included to make an extra glove and hand warmer should you lose one. The cowl and hat comes in one size and instructions for the hand warmers and gloves are provided in three sizes. Enough yarn is provided in the kit to make the largest size of hand warmers and gloves. The Oregon Hat Set is also available in an Autumn colourway which you can see by clicking here.
If you are a beginner in the technique then there is a graded progression you can follow, starting with the very easy cowl. Then make the hat which introduces double decrease shaping. Follow with the hand warmers and you will learn how to make thumb gussets. Finally you will graduate to the intricacies of the gloves where each digit is worked in a patterned circular fashion. You will be an expert by the time you have finished the set.
The patterns and colours for the Spring version were inspired by a road trip along the Mackenzie River and through the Oregon forests early one April over twenty years ago.
Oregon is available in the Autumn or Spring colourways, and as a cardgian, waistcoat or hat set.
