Grasping Vines Set
This crochet headband and fingerless mitt combination is the perfect way to ease into the transitional seasons. With its cashmere/cotton blend, Truva feels light enough for the not-quite-chilly days of spring and autumn, while feeling soft enough to inspire warmth for the days when the air is cool and crisp. This perfect pairing between airy and cozy inspired these accessories which are caught in the blend between summer and fall, or winter and spring.

This set uses simple stitches and assembly techniques. The headband is worked as a flat panel, then folded and seamed to achieve the twist. The fingerless mitts bottom and top edge are worked in continuous joined rounds, and the hand is worked in turning rounds with a central set of increases to accommodate the width of the thumb.
