The Hatchmere hat and mitts are a set of really simple cable knits. Use DK yarn to create the stylish yet straightforward cables on the hat and fingerless gloves. 

On the edge of Delamere Forest, just behind the welcoming Carrier’s Inn, sits Hatchmere Lake. The captivating view from the Inn was obscured for years by high reeds & brambles, but is now cleared & a very pleasant sight.

The simple cable stitches of the Hatchmere Hat & Mitts complementary set reflect the comings & goings of the Lake’s birdlife & the little prints & ripples they leave behind
This hat and mitts set uses 2 skeins of Bowland DK in Dianthus. It’s a super soft, strong, buttery yarn made from the finest Bluefaced Leicester wool.
