'Cool Wool' Hat and Cowl Set Knitting

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl, basic increases and decreases, short rows, chain, single crochet

Pattern Description:

A cozy, quick-to-knit hat and cowl set is easily adapted to different sizes: toddler, child, teen and adult. It is also a great way to use up single skein of chunky weight yarn.
A fun and simple hat is knitted sideways, using short rows, create a lovely twist effect around the head. You may adorn it with a flower or just a big button.
The button-up neck warmer is a simple wrap-style neck scarf with a button closure and as easy as knit and purl. Wear it as a cowl, neck warmer, shoulder warmer by buttoning wherever you like.

Pattern Notes:
Cool Wool hat is knit sideways in a single piece composed of several wedges shaped with short rows. You will work the body and the brim simultaneously. The outer edge will form part of the band of the hat. To finish the hat the cast-on and cast-off edges are joined together with mattress stitch.
