Heartland yarn by Lion Brand must be one of my favorite go-to’s for hats and scarves. I love the muted colors in soft blues, greens, and greys. They have a nice feel too. Of course, I love to soften my projects after I complete them too. Makes the yarn even softer! I hope you enjoy this easy pattern! Keep those hands warm this winter in these stylish beauties. They work up FAST. For this pattern, you will learn to crochet these stitches and use these techniques: crocheting in the round, joining a chain together, making a thumb hole, working in third loop of a half double crochet, front post double crochet (fpdc), front post double crochet 2 together (fpdc2tog – a decrease), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), but don’t worry, there are tutorials for them all!
