A matching hat and legwarmer set. Both the hat and legwarmers are knit in Fair Isle stockinette stitch in the round. Knitting Fair Isle in the round is fun and easy, since you're always working with the RS facing and holding the strands of yarn to the back of the work. The legwarmers are shaped to fit comfortably from knee to ankle.
