These fashionable knit hats, gloves, and mittens will keep you warm this winter -- or make great gifts.
These fingerless mittens could not be easier to make. Each one is made from plain garter-stitched rectangles, sewn edge to edge to form a tube, with an opening for the thumb.
When you first learn to knit, you feel so pleased with the nubby-textured rectangles that grow on your needles. What to do with them (other than make scarf after scarf)? This girl’s hat is a rectangle folded in half and stitched at the sides. Her cowl is a longer rectangle sewn end to end. Her mother’s fingerless mittens are stitched rectangles.
