Letter from the Editors

Be Warm from Head to Toe

Knit and crochet accessories are ideal projects for our busy lives. They are not a huge commitment of time and they make appreciated gifts for all ages. We are happy to share this collection of designs to warm you and yours.

Starting at the top…choose from 10 hat patterns including men, women, kids and even a dragon hat for baby.

Keep necks warm with a choice of 4 scarf designs including child-size versions. There’s also a buttoned neck warmer that will take half the time of a full length scarf. For a bit more warmth turn to our 2 feminine wraps. Any of these scarves and hats can be made as gifts without knowing the recipient’s size.

Hands and feet are not forgotten, as we’ve included 11 designs especially for keeping hands and toes warm. You’ll find mittens for all sizes, fingerless gloves and even gloves with a flip top finger and thumb so you can text without removing them.

Ending at the toes…choose from 5 warm-your-feet designs including slippers, socks, knee socks and even booties for the youngest of us.

Sincerely, Red Heart Yarn www.redheart.com For over 75 years Red Heart has been producing quality yarns that have been caringly crafted with a little bit of love woven into every strand. We are proud of our tradition of yarn and patterns that add comfort, warmth and style to our lives.

Red Heart and you. Two hearts, one passion.
