Child's Mittens and Hat (for 6-12 yrs old). I used Big Twist Sincerely, Pink Denim, 100% Acrylic, purchased from JoAnn's on sale. One 5 oz ball (270 yds) was enough to make this set. Hat pattern from Love Knitting.com; Baby, Child, Adult "Little Petal" Slouchy Hat; designer Jessica Rose Hand Knits. Mittens pattern from Etsy.com, GrammasKnittedGifts, "Classic Kids Mittens". I purchased both the hat and mitten patterns for a reasonable cost and am glad I did. Both had good instructions, easy enough to follow, with great results. The slouchy hat is adorable.
