This beautiful hat and mitten combo has been designed for us by Fiona Ellis and are named in honour of Geneva Misener (1878–1961). As the first female professor at the University of Alberta and a champion for women’s rights, we know that Geneva kept a cool head in debate and had
a firm handshake! Beautiful cables on a reverse stockinette background ornament these warm accessories. The hat fits perfectly and doesn’t mess up your hair; the mittens have a pleasing symmetry and flat top finger construction. You’ll make a statement, just like Geneva.

This pattern is available as a PDF Download (instant download at checkout). Or, if you prefer, it's available through our Ravelry shop. Add to cart

MATERIALS
River City Yarns Epic Yarn; 194 m / 212 yds per 100 g ball; 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. One ball each, all sizes / 2 balls for the set. Pictured in colour 900 Silver. 

Note: River City Yarns Epic Yarn has been discontinued.  For yarn substitutions, we recommend Cascade 220 which is also a 100% Peruvian wool, for the closest fibre match. Alternatively, Berroco Ultra Wool or Rowan Pure Wool Worsted would also be good matches if you would like a superwash wool substitution.

Designed exclusively for River City Yarns by Fiona Ellis.
