Nelkin Designs' 3fer is three for one! One skein of Schaefer Yarn's Nichole will make you all three items in this pattern, the cap, the mitts, and even the cowl! Using beads is optional, you can make all three items with beads, or without, or make the cap with beads for your mom, the mitts without for yourself, and the cowl for your kid's fourth grade teacher. 3fer is based on an easy slip stitch pattern that is created by wrapping the yarn twice around the right hand ndl and then cabling it on the next row. Directions are included in the pattern for cabling without a cable needle, SO easy! As with all Nelkin Designs patterns the stitch pattern is both charted and written out.
