Color Blocked Hat and Handwarmers Set

Color Blocked Hat and Handwarmers

This simple hat and fingerless mitts combo is quick to work up and perfect for beginners. It features an interesting broken rib transition between the two colors to set this set apart from the rest. The set uses just one skein of each color and is a great way to use up single skeins or leftovers.
