Rugged Warmth Winter Set
This crochet pattern is for a winter accessories set for older teenage boys and men. The hat and mitten patterns are written in two different sizes. The stitch pattern and yarn used in these accessories creates a very warm set with a dense, but flexible fabric. The stitch pattern is all in post stitches, which tip the tops of the stitches inward, adding thickness to the fabric, and reducing the size of the spaces between stitches. There are also three raised ridges on the lower edge of the hat, the middle of the mittens, and the ends of the scarf for asthetics.
The suggested yarn is Plymouth Yarns Suri Merino a luxurious blend that is 55% Suri Alpaca and 45% Extrafine Merino Wool. These animal fibers provide outstanding insulation from the cold, even when wet, so they will be great for wearing in the snow. Here is the URL for the company's online shadecard:
