Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chain
  • double crochet
  • post stitches

Pattern Description:

This crochet pattern is for a winter accessories set for older teenage boys and men. The hat and mitten patterns are written in two different sizes, the smaller of which will also fit most women, including me. The stitch pattern and yarn used in these accessories creates a very warm set with a dense, but flexible fabric. The stitch pattern is all in post stitches, which tip the tops of the stitches inward, adding thickness to the fabric, and reducing the size of the spaces between stitches. There are also three raised ridges on the lower edge of the hat, the middle of the mittens, and the ends of the scarf for looks.

The suggested yarn is Plymouth Yarns Suri Merino a luxurious blend that is 55% Suri Alpaca and 45% Extrafine Merino Wool. Each skein stats: 109 yd [100 m]/1.75 oz [50 g]; weight category 4 [medium]). These animal fibers provide outstanding insulation from the cold, even when wet, so they will be great for wearing in the snow. This comes in a great variety of masculine, feminine, and neutral colors. It is a soft, pleasant yarn to work with and wear. The entire set requires 12 skeins of yarn (a lot of yarn is required when working in this stitch pattern, but this makes these items extra warm and comfortable). The mittens require 2 to 2 1/2 skeins depending on size, the scarf requires 7 1/2 skeins, the hat requires 1 3/4 to 2 skeins depending on size.
