Pigment Hat + Hand Warmers
Knit up in our brand new Coorie super kid mohair, our Pigment Hat + Hand Warmers are like dipping your brush into pots of pure beauty!
For undaunted color, Coorie is ready to play! In a palette of 17 gorgeous colors, each and every skein shines with an inner glow that casts a whole new light on its neighbor.
The Scottish answer to Scandinavia’s hygge, “coorie” is all about slowing down and nestling in. Talking about cozy? Talking about getting cozy? Good, we’re in the right place! Our Coorie concentrates all the warmth, softness, and texture of 100% super kid mohair into a one-ingredient yarn with a gentle halo and exquisite glisten.
With rolled edges and no-fuss shaping, our super simple Pigment Hat + Hand Warmers give Coorie the space to glow. And sized from baby to adult, everyone can coorie in with their own set!
Choose your color pairing from a palette that ranges from soft Pink Sand to punchy Wild Mustard and from chilly Icecap Blue to rich Green Pasture. Let color wash over your imagination, and surprise yourself with an unexpected duo!

NOTE: For the Thumb Hole, you will work back and forth in rows, turning the work between each row, as you would a flat piece of knitting. Work the stitches on the double pointed needles just as they are, moving from one needle to the next.
Row 1 (wrong side): Purl to end of round, turn work.
Row 2 (right side): Knit to end of round, turn work.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 – (4, 5, 6, 7) more times, until Thumb Hole measures – (1¼, 1½, 1¾, 2) inches, ending with a right-side row.
NOTE: For the Hand you will work in the round again with the outside of the piece (i.e. the knit side) facing you.
Joining Round: With the right side facing you, place a marker and connect the two sides of the Thumb Hole by using the working yarn to knit into the next stitch, then knit to end of round.
Continue in stockinette stitch until piece measures – (10, 11, 12, 13) inches from cast-on edge, or until desired length to top of Hand.
Bind off loosely.
Finish Thumb Hole
With Color A and beginning with stitch to the right of Thumb Hole top, pick up and knit – (20, 24, 28, 32) stitches around Thumb Hole.
Join for working in the round, and knit 1 round.
Loosely bind off knitwise.
Make a second hand warmer identical to the first.
Weave in remaining ends and block as desired.
