I love a good cabled mitten! This soft, dense Quince and Company yarn makes an excellent pair when teamed up with a fancy cuff and well-fitted thumb. The apple in the photo is a Blue Pearmain and hence the name. Apples, orchards and other autumn-in-New England things are among my favorites. Cables aren't just for sweaters!
You may end up playing yarn chicken on the last few yards so if substituting yarn be sure to have at least 180 yards available.
You'll need one skein for the hat and one for the mitts, so if you're only knitting one or the other, halve the yarn requirement.
Alternately, you can buy digital patterns directly on Ravelry to have it placed in your library there. If this printed pattern is out of stock when you order, you may place a backorder and we'll ship as soon as new copies come in.
