“Drink dew from the magnolia in the morning and take autumn chrysanthemum’s falling petals as food in the evening.”
-- Qu Yuan from the poem Li Sao

This is a pattern for a tammy, beanie, mittens, and mitts. All are worked using the stranded colourwork technique.

Each hat is worked from the bottom rib up with decreases shaping the crown. And mittens and mitts are worked from the cuff up, placing thumb sts on holder, working the rest of the palm, and then working the thumb.
