Need a quick gift for a birthday? Want to use up those two skeins of yarn you bought on sale? These hand warmers or the neck warmer are both quick projects that are great stash busters. And you can make the whole set in a weekend. Decorated with pretty post stitch columns and cables, these cold weather essentials will really show off your crochet skill. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY For intermediate crocheters with knowledge of basic crochet stitches and good tension control You will learn to make front and back post stitches GAUGE 20 stitches and 25 rows - 4 x 4 swatch The post stitches in this ribbed cuff will make the fabric quite stretchy, so the foundation chain needs to be loose. Consider using a larger hook for the chain. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Hand warmers are approximately 5 inches tall and fit medium hands (one size fits most with instructions to modify for smaller or larger hands) Cowl approximately 6 1/2 inches tall x 12 inches wide (one size fits all)

Recommended with this pattern

  • Rowan Felted Tweed DK 50% merino wool; 24% alpaca; 25% viscose
  • Each 50g ball is approximately 190 yards
  • One ball will be enough to make the hand warmers. For both the hand warmers and the cowl you will need two balls
