Basic Shell KPS 997
Soucy: "A simple hat and mitten set for children, it uses worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 20 sts to 4 inches. Knit in the round on circular and double point needles. Three hat styles, and sizes 2-4, 6-8, and 10-12."
How can Soucy make children look so elegant and refined? Imagine the yarns you could use; the young one could look dressed by Calvin Klein. For the flap hat, you make the flaps first, then incorporate them into a round and work up to the crown. Mittens are identical; there's no right or left hand-- 'handy' if they lose one-- just make a bunch the same and dole them out
