This listing is for Ambah O'Brien's Astra Hat & Cowl paper pattern. We love this pattern for adventurous new knitters and those that want to use up some leftover yarns!

Perfect for fast gift knitting, the Astra hat comes in four sizes and the matching cowl is easily adjusted for a custom ft. Choose contrasting colors, create a gradient or bold variation with speckles or solids, or have some fun and use up your favorite DK leftovers for the slip-stitch two-color section. Team up this enjoyable pattern with the attaching Astra mitts for a cosy, coordinating set that the whole family will love.
