The sweater is made to fit one size only (see details in picture) and both hat and sweater are knitted in DK (worsted weight) yarn.

Clear written instructions are given (no charts). If you can knit basic rib the hat will be easy for you. The sweater is a little more complex as it uses cable stitches, but if you know how to knit cable it should be straightforward.
