Take flight with this hat and mitten set. Pairing a long color repeat yarn with a solid, these stranded colorwork knitting projects look more difficult than they are. The hat begins with the earflaps and decreases to the crown in a charted pattern. The mittens start with the cuff, then are worked using charts to the tips of the hands.
