FREEBIE Braided Hat & Mitts

Braided Hat & Mitts

Another great freebie that would make a wonderful gift! It’s knit in bulky yarn, so it won’t take too long to whip up a set. I think the hat would look perfect topped with a fur pom-pom.

One skein of each of these yarns should be enough for a hat or pair of mitts, get two for the set (except for Cascade Eco, you only need 1 for a set):
