Classic Hat + Mittens In Wigeon | Purl Soho

With a cozy folded hem and Wigeon’s soft touch, our Classic Hat + Mittens have a straightforward appeal and a simple beauty that are truly timeless.

The double thickness of the folded hem gives you extra warmth and security right where you need it most, keeping your ears warm and your hat in place and protecting your wrists from sneaky drafts and snowflakes, too. If you haven’t knit a folded hem before, this is the perfect pattern for learning! These small projects let you practice on fewer stitches, and the crisp stitch definition of Wigeon makes it easy to see everything clearly. And of course, we have tutorials to walk you through every step!
