Each of the accessories in this cozy hat, cowl and fingerless mitts set is decorated with stranded colorwork in a diamond and zigzag pattern which is simple yet striking. The hat is sized to fully cover the ears and is finished with an optional fur or faux fur pompom. The cowl is long enough to be looped double around the neck for extra warmth. The mitts are form-fitting and comfortable without interfering with use of the hands. These pieces are ideal for those chilly autumn days!
