FO: Hyde Park Set

Aaaah. Don’t you just love Fall? I do. (Especially when it’s not raining).

Les châtaignes jonchant l’herbe, la lumière rasante, les feuillages chatoyants… C’est sûr, l’ automne est là!
Beautiful Fall day in Hyde Park

I got inspired to make the perfect set of accessories for this blessed season.

L’inspiration idéale pour se mettre au boulot et pondre vite fait un ensemble de demi-saison:

Flora neckwarmer

Fetching Fingerless Gloves

The Flora neckwarmer pattern can be found on Knitty, right here.

Fetching is also a Knitty pattern.

Contrary to appearances, I didn’t use the same yarn for both. For Flora, I used about 1.5 balls of Bergère de France Ideal in Cendre (and 3mm needles). For Fetching, I used about 1 ball of Cashsoft Baby DK in Smokey.

Both patterns are really quick and fun. I found Flora slightly confusing at times, but I made it work ok in the end.

Le cache-col “Flora” et les mitaines “Fetching” sont des modèles gratuits. J’ai (malgré les apparences) utilisé 2 laines différentes pour chacun des modèles. Pour Flora, à peu près 1 pelote et demie de Bergère de France Ideal (couleur cendre), et pour Fetching, grosso modo 1 pelote de Rowan Cashsoft (couleur Smokey). Les deux modèles sont faciles et rapides à réaliser, la fleur du cache-col m’a donné un peu de fil à retordre, mais rien de grave!

Here are more gratuitous shots – – Des photos!:
