Around the Bend Hat and Cowl Set to Knit


My Around the Bend Hat & Cowl Set is now available for purchase in my Ravelry pattern store for $4.00. The hat is a pillbox style with a flat top which is my favorite hat style. The set works up fast with 220 yards of Aran/worsted weight yarn using size 8 and 10 needles. The hat is worked from the bottom up in the round. The hat and the cowl have a decorative diagonal stitch pattern. The top of the hat continues this as decorative decreases. Wear the cowl as a tube as pictured or pull it to one side and pin it for a draft free fit. The hat is 22” around x 4.5” deep x 6” across flat top. Cowl is: 25” around x 7” tall. It’s easy to make it longer if you like a longer cowl.

Cadence Hat & Cowl Set to Crochet




My newest crochet design is my Cadence Hat & Cowl set. I love pillbox style hats! And since I had leftover yarn, I decided to create a matching cowl. Both projects are worked in the round (the hat from the top down). Simple stitches and a striped yarn create an eye catching effect. I used a single 251 yard skein of I Love This Acrylic Stripes in black raspberry for both projects. You may need a little more than that, especially if you modify the pattern. The hat measured 23” around x 4” deep. The cowl 27.5” x 5” tall. Tips are included for making both items larger. Substitute any Aran weight yarn (heavy worsted) and size H and J hooks. The pattern instructions are written only. Get both designs for $4.00 from my Ravelry pattern store. Have fun!
