Shameless Selfie Set - PDF Knitting Pattern
Knitters, as a collective, tend to be fairly generous folk - always knitting gifts for other people. My social media feeds are full of images of hand-made gifts for other people, especially around the holidays. I think it’s time we knitters take a couple hours for ourselves and knit something that WE can wear.
This lovely little set knits up quickly and looks fabulous. So go ahead, get selfish and shamelessly knit something for yourself! And then take selfies and post them on social media for all to see!

This pattern includes directions for a cowl and a pair of mitts, knit in the round, with jogless stripes.
It is recommended that the mitts are knit with ó-inch of negative ease.
Mitts are knit identical to one another. Make two to complete a pair.
Carry yarn colors up the inside of the cowl rather than breaking the colors – this saves time and yarn!
