A Day Out Walking Knitting Pattern


PDF Knitting Pattern for Hat Gloves and Socks

These two tone outdoor essentials use British Sheep Breeds Wool with a vibrant contrast colour yarn. The socks are designed with the textured pattern above the top of the boot with smooth stocking stitch lower down for comfort. The hat has a striking cross stitch detail and the gloves keep your hands warm but fingers free for doing up those laces. All three items are knitted in the round on double pointed needles.
