If you know anything about me, you know how I support teens and young adults who face obstacles. There are organizations in major cities doing their best to support LGBTQ+ homeless youth. This mitten and hat set, like my Slippin’ set, are knit in Wool and the Gang Feeling Good yarn and have a handy little space to slip your fingers through for those times when you need just a bit more dexterity without losing any warmth. I also added a river motif to represent the struggle our LGBTQ+ youth/young adult encounter and how it sometimes feels like swimming upstream. Often I see a yarn I like or want to try, I get a few colors in single skeins. Please make these items from your warm, single skeins, or odd ends and send them to and make a difference for homeless LGBTQ+ youth/young adults.
This mittens and hat set is a perfect way to use your 9wpi handspun yarn. Lofty, fluffy wool yarn will keep hands and head warmer than tightly spun yarn. The mittens should not be too tight. The hat is written to have 10% negative ease so it’s snug. Please choose the size that is desired as some people like their hats looser or tighter.
