Notes

When working the Hat you may wish to lessen the jog that naturally forms when you change colors in the round. I have done this by knitting into the stitch below on the first stitch of the second round of a given color (this occurs on the first stitch of Round 2 and Round 7 in the Charts.)

The Mittens have a couple of rounds where the second color isn’t used on one side (the top of the hand) and it will have to be carried. I recommend weaving it in (as for stranded knitting) a few times over that portion of the knitting.
