The Baya Hat and Cowl are the perfect companions to a cold day. The set is knit in the round with two bright yarns and simple slipped stitches are used to create a striking visual effect.

Knitted in worsted weight yarn and with just one color of yarn used at a time (the two color patterned stitch sections of the hat and cowl are made by slipping stitches and only one color of yarn is ever used at a time when making the set) this set works up really quickly.

Baya means berry in Spanish and this hat and cowl set takes its name from the name of the bright pink, berry-colored yarn used.

The patterns include a check list for each section to check your stitch count and mark each row as finished.
