Wanette Winter Set: Easy Knit Accessories

Easy Knit Winter Accessories, Free patterns! Headband, Mittens, and Cowl by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

I bring you beautiful, but simple, winter accessories! This matched set includes a cowl, earwarmer headband, and mittens. These are sized to fit adults, but work just as well for teens and tweens. They fit my 11 year old daughter nicely, and they fit me nicely.

Size 10 40” [102 cm] circulars (for Magic Loop), size 10 24” [61 cm] circulars or size 10 DPNs, or size needed to obtain gauge. If you change this needle size, then use needles one size smaller instead of size 9.

Notes

All 3 pieces are worked in the rnd with RS always facing, except for the 5 rows of the mitten thumbhole. You will work flat for those 5 rows.

I suggest that for all three pieces, you use the Super Stretchy Bind-off when binding off is needed. See instructions below.

Super Stretchy Bind-off

For Cowl and Headband: K1, *P1, place left needle through backs of 2 sts on right needle, P2tog, K1, place left needle through fronts of 2 sts on right needle, K2tog tbl, repeat from * around, after BO every st, pick up and K1 st through first BO st, fasten off.

For Thumbhole of Mitten:

RS row: K2, *place left needle through fronts of 2 sts on the right needle, K2tog tbl**, K1, repeat from * to **.

WS row: P2, *place left needle through backs of 2 sts on right needle, P2tog**, P1, repeat from * to **.
