I named this pattern “Doppelt”, which means “double” in German – it is a double-warm hat, and two hats in one. The free pattern includes links to a three-part video tutorial (below) and a bonus mitts pattern.
Size: Women’s average (for a slightly larger or smaller fit, use a larger or smaller needle size)
Needles: Size US 4 (3.5mm) and US 5 (3.75mm) circular needles, 16” (or longer if you prefer to use magic loop), size US 5 (3.75mm) double-pointed needles for the crown of the hat and the mitts
Yarn: KPC Glencoul DK (70% merino, 30% cotton), details on amounts and colors below
Additional Materials: cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving ends
Gauge: 6 stitches and 8.5 rows per inch (2.5cm) in stockinette

KPC is running a promo to coincide with the release of this pattern. To receive HDK$50 (about US $6.40) off your purchase, register an account on the KPC website and use the code VPINK4KPC at checkout. This offer is good through December 31, 2017.
Yarn amounts for both hat and mitts:
7 balls of Glencoul DK total
Thunder – 3 balls
Wicker – 1 ball
Pear Drop – 1 ball
Lagoon – 1 ball
Mist – 1 ball
If you want to do the HAT only, you’ll need one ball fewer of the main color, so 2 balls of Thunder instead of 3.
If you want to do the MITTS only, you’ll need 2 balls of yarn.
