I don’t use Red Heart’s With Love very much, but I happened to have two skeins in my stash, and couldn’t help but fall in love with the soft, squishy feel. One of my favorite stitches for texture is the puff stitch, and I knew it would be a perfect pair with the With Love to create this soft, squishy and warm Snowcapped Cowl and Beanie set!

As far as snowy scenes go, I think this set would look great with aqua, blue or gray as the main color, or any color combo really! Being worked with just one skein, and a little extra for the ribbing, this is a nice set to make as a gift, and can be worked fairly quickly.

Materials:

  • 140 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Red Heart’s With Love in Tan (95 Yards) and White (45 Yards)
  • K10.5/6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Time Spent:
I worked up the small size in about an hour and a half.

Measurements:
Teen/Adult Small and Large
