Cable Knit Hat and Recycled Mittens
Brrrrrr! It was a chilly Halloween last night! Luckily, I had just finished my new cable knit hat! And I had these recycled mittens on hand that my oh, so talented Mum made me last Christmas—they certainly kept my fingers nice and warm.
Today, I will share the pattern my Mum followed to make these amazing recycled mittens! Essentially, I dug out some cashmere and angora sweaters that had moth holes, and then Mum cut the pattern out of the good parts of the sweater. Follow this link to view the free up-cycled mitten pattern that she used. These are fleece-lined, so they are sooooo warm and cozy!
My head was also nice and toasty thanks to this chunky wool cable knit hat that I just finished. As you can see, my daughter very quickly decided that this one was hers LOL!
This hat was so easy to make and is perfect for the beginner that is looking to try cables for the first time. I will say that the original pattern was meant to be very slouchy, but I altered mine into a snug-fitting hat. Try this free hat pattern if you want to try the slouchy version of this hat.
Until next time,
