Child’s Mitten & Hat Set- Free Pattern

I’ve actually been done with making this set for a whole month now, but last night I FINALLY remembered to type up the instructions for it! Olivia has a few hat & mitten sets that I’ve made her, so I alternate which set she wears. When she wore this set yesterday it reminded me that I hadn’t yet shared the pattern here. So, without further ado…
