The Dancing Deer accessories from Knitscene Winter 2017 are full of holiday cheer and welcome the cold winter.  Worsted weight yarn provides extra warmth for your noggin and is worked in the round from the bottom up. The mittens feature thick cuffs that are ribbed on the inside so that the mittens fit closely and keep a nice thermal barrier around the wrists.   The mittens are worked in the round from the cuff up; both mittens are identical and can be worn on either hand.

Kit includes Knitscene Winter 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn. Please choose between Hat Kit or Hat & Mittens Kit.  For yarn winding services, click here.

  Worsted Weight

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Ultra Wool by Berroco (100% Superwash Wool; 100g/219yds): 2 Skeins Main Color (MC), 1 Skein Color B & 1 Skein color C for hat and mittens.  Shown in Frost, Navy & Chili Red.

ALTERNATE YARN: Rios by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/210yds): 2 Skeins MC, 1 Skein Color B & 1 Skein color C for hat and mittens. Hat Kit includes 1 Skein MC & half skein of each Color B & C.  Malabrigo has a beautiful variegation which creates a slight mottled effect in the finished garment.  Easy care, super soft merino wool from Uruguay is an economical choice that will leave you wanting more.  Please note that the floats will not felt together on the backside because this is superwash yarn.

ALTERNATE YARN: NatureSpun Worsted by Brown Sheep Co. (100% USA Wool; 100g/245 yds): 2 Skeins Main Color (MC), 1 Skein Color B & 1 Skein color C for hat and mittens.  Hat Kit includes 1 Skein MC & half skein of each Color B & C.  Solid colors only.  This USA grown, dyed and milled yarn has a pleasing hand and a great price.  Some would say that non-superwash yarns are better for colorwork (to hide your floats on high contrast pieces) and the slight felting acheived by rubbing the back while wet helps hold the floats in place, making your hat & mittens longer wearing.  We love Brown Sheep Co. and think it is a wonderful yarn due to its softness, environmentally minded makers, and it is made in the USA!

ALTERNATE YARN: Woolstok by Blue Sky Fibers  (100% Peruvian Fine Highland Wool; 50g/123yds): 4 skeins MC, 2 Skeins Color B & 1 Skeins Color C.  Hat Kit includes 2 Skein MC & 1 Skein of each Color B & C.  Woolstok is known for its beautiful heathered colors, and is quickly making its place in the knitting world.  All colors are kept in stock, so feel free to create your own color combination by using the skein guidelines above!
