The Galloni Hat and Mittens pattern is a quick-to-knit set sized for girls from 2 to teen. (I will probably roll out an adult sized version of this set some time soon, too. I want a set for me!) The sample is knit up in Sunshine Yarns Merino Worsted, which is always a pleasure to work with. I believe the colorway is Wild Rose.
Galloni is Italian for chevron. As you can see, both the hat and the mittens are edged with chevrons. The pattern is not too complex — completely suitable for advanced beginners who have used double pointed needles before.
The pattern is sized in S (M, L, XL) for both the hat and mittens. The sample is shown in the small mittens and large hat (yes, we do have large heads in our family), taking about 200 yards to work up. Any worsted weight wool or wool blend would work, but since it is designed for children, remember they are far more sensitive to itchy wool. Pick something soft!
Hope you all enjoy the pattern as much as I did!
