yes, those are cats on my mitts cats in the hat


Cat got your knitting? This sweet mitt and hat set makes a fun colorwork project and is a great gift for lovers of cats and kittens. Both the hat and mitts are worked in the round, keeping finishing to a minimum.
Skills required beyond basic knit and purl include ability to knit in the round and ability to read a colorwork chart.
For mitts, sizes are child (adult). Finished circumference around palm is approximately 6 (7.75)”. For hat, sizes are child (adult medium, adult large). Finished circumference is approximately 17 (20.5, 22)”.


Gauge: 34 sts x 36 rows = 4” in stst on US size 2 (2.75mm) set of 4 double pointed needles (DPNs), or size required to obtain gauge.

Note that stranded colorwork tends to pull your knitting in, so it is suggested you go up a needle size for stranded rows. I.e., if you get gauge in plain stst using size 2 (2.75 mm) needles, use a size 3(3.25 mm) needle for the stranded rows.
