Special Stitches

M1L – make one stitch left leaning: Insert left needle from front to back under the horizontal strand between the stitches on the two needles, knit this lifted strand through the back loop to twist the stitch to the left. (1 st increased)

M1R – make one stitch right leaning: Insert left needle from back to front under the horizontal strand between the stitches on the two needles, knit this lifted strand through the front loop to twist the stitch to the right. (1 st increased)

Pattern Notes

MC is held double throughout.

Selvedge stitches (the first and last stitch of each row) are always purled.

The hoody capelet is worked flat starting with the hood worked from the front to the back and seamed in the back. Then the capelet and the inner cowl are attached by picking up stitches along the bottom part (neck) of the hood.

Mittens are worked flat in one piece and seamed on one side.
