Two beautiful Fair Isle hat and mitten patterns.
A real nostalgic heirloom set to make, inspired by the Sonja Henie rage in the 1930’s.
(See other listing for a fab adult Sonja Henie* pattern.)
These two patterns are so similar and cover adjoining ages so I have included both together.
The colour pattern does NOT have charts but only has row by row written instructions; black and white pattern has charts AND row by row instructions as well.
