Majuscule & Minuscule
The Majuscule and Minuscule hat and fingerless mitts set is worked in the round using stranded colourwork techniques. The hat features a fun pom pom, whilst the fingerless mitts have an integrated thumb. The set is worked in Blacker Yarns Swan 4ply, a delightfully plump yarn from the fleeces of small sheep flocks.
The pattern is fully charted and written out. It includes a schematic and tips on how to modify fit.
Majuscule and Minuscule take their visual cues from hand-decorated early printed books. Karie chose motifs and colours found throughout late 15th century books.
Suitable for intermediate knitters.
