Pattern Description:

Something quick, fun, colorful, special, warm, ...
Something with a very unusual construction, but a very easy one ...

Something is a set of a beanie and a cowl. They are worked back and forth, but also kind of in the round in 1 piece and completely seamless.
Off the needles and ready to wear.
And another good news is : there is absolutely no purling to do.

It's best to know to use a circular needle with a minimum length of 80 cm / 31.5 and magic loop (schematics are included if you don't know how to work magic loop).

The pattern is written for dk weight, but a recipe for other yarn weights or other dimensions is included

This is an ideal project to use up little leftovers in your stash and experiment with color and stripes. You will need between 120 and 170m (130 to 185 yards) of different colors (minimum 2)


19 stitches and 40 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in garter stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The beanie comes in 3 sizes: S, M and L: head circumference: 53-56, 56-59, 59-62 cm (20.75-22, 22-23.25, 23.25-24.5), finished measurements: 49, 53, 56.5 cm (19.25, 20.75, 22.25)
