Men’s hat, mitts & scarf set Knitting Pattern

Men’s hat, mitts & scarf set

Designer: Lesley Arnold-Hopkins

Your man will love Lesley Arnold-Hopkins' cool collection of winter accessories

We all know that men can be fussy when it comes to winter warmers, but they're sure to love this matching crocheted set. The hat, scarf and fingerless gloves all feature a rib-like effect that is created by working into just the back loops of each row. This gives a narrow, stretchy fabric with ridges. LK designer Lesley chose to work the hat and the mittens sideways so the ridges form long subtle stripes. We've opted for a deep and dramatic colourway but there are also some neutral options in this yarn if your man prefers something more subtle.

Shaping in this project
The hat and the thumb of the mitten is worked using a method similar to short row shaping in knitting. The stitches at the end of some rows remain unworked for a time, this pulls the fabric into a natural curve when these stitches are finally worked. This shaping method is used at one end only throughout our Scott hat and forms the crown. On the mittens, the thumb is created in a similar way on a select number of stitches midway along the mitten.

Scott (hat): to fit average man’s head
Kirk(mitts): to fit average man’s hands
McCoy (scarf): 22cm wide x 226cm long (point to point)
