About Not Flying:

Inspired by the classic Flying Geese quilt motif, this hat and mitt set is for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be flying south for the winter. The hat and mittens are worked in the round, and sized for teens and adults. Patterns are charted, and although experience with stranded colour-work is helpful, it’s not required. We love our River City Yarns Epic (100% Peruvian wool) for its warmth and solid colour choices. We've also created kits with our River City Yarns Eden (81% Merino wool, 9% Cashmere, 10% Nylon) for its softness and one-of-a-kind hand-dyed colours.
