Cozy cowl and hat set with a simple cable pattern throughout. These quick knits are one-skein projects using super bulky yarn. Perfect for gift giving to others or yourself.

Blizzard was designed by my ten-year old niece, Izzy. She chose the color of yarn and shared her vision for the cowl. She wanted something to match her back-to-school gear for these quickly approaching winter months.

I loved this cable motif so much it was decided why not add a hat too. Knit one or both - I can’t wait to share your finished pieces with Izzy!
