This stylish hat and fingerless glove set was inspired by the gently curling leaves that are almost ready to abandon themselves to autumn…hence its name, Summer’s-End.
Both items are knitted seamlessly in the round, requiring only the very minimum of weaving in ends and tightening the crown. Reverse stocking stitch gives a lovely warm and hard-wearing fabric whilst providing texture on the outside and a smooth cosy interior. The addition of seed/moss stitch in place of ribbing produces a stylish touch. Great to wear as a slouchy or fold up the brim for a classic look. I have chosen a good quality, 100% wool for durability and structure but it would be interesting to see how they look in softer yarns.
Suitable for intermediate knitters or confident beginners who have some experience in working in the round, either on circular needles or dpn’s and of the Magic Loop.
