Hope Hat, Gloves and Scarf.
This lovely set was originally knitted for a very beautiful family member, called Hope. She loves pink, so this set was originally knitted in pink, with pretty ‘flowers’, and re-knit in blue.
There are 2 sizes , toddler aged 2-4yrs approx., and child aged 5-8yrs approx.
An easy/intermediate knit, they are all knitted flat and sewn up the sides/back. The scarf is easy - skills needed are cast/bind on and off, knit and purl. The hat and gloves are intermediate - skills needed are cast/bind on, knit, purl, knit or purl 2 together, purl front back, and make1 by picking up the strand between sts and knitting into the back of it. Instructions are written in English, line by line, with British/USA terms, and there are photos to help with the fringe on the scarf.
Great for younger family members and friends. Colourful chunky/bulky yarn for a bit of cheer and warmth on colder days.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
