Make a Hat & Mittens from a Sweater (patterns!)

Here is a (very) basic pattern for hat and mittens set that Trish from "Simple Up" made from a felted cable-knit sweater. -- note that she's only allowed for very small (approx. 3/16 inch, or 4 mm) seams, since felted sweaters don't require finished edges.

Check out the patterns and instructions here!

We used to make these when we were young. We did the blanket aroung the edges. They were very useful.
