The year 2020 may well go down in the history books as the year of “social distancing”, but when I heard that there were efforts to rename it “physical distancing” I said YESSSS!! While we maintain our physical distance to stop the spread of this horrible virus, now more than ever we need to connect with each other socially.

This convertible cowl, hat, headband, mouth-covering with drawstring is inspired by the connection we as crafters have with each other. We are socially connecting while physically distancing!

Grab a mini-skein set or scraps and cast on this versatile accessory. Knit away as you connect with other crafters on a video chat, and soon you will be zooming along!

This garter, slipped stitch motif is very stretchy. Pattern measurements are unstretched, but it will stretch to fit a large range of sizes.

I recommend pairing solid/tonal colorways with highly contrasting variegated, tonal, self-striping, or gradient yarn! For highest contrast, pick colorways that coordinate, with no matching colors.

Option 2 Sample in C1 Suburban Stitcher colorway Blurple , C2 Leading Men Fiber Arts colorway Glacial, C3 LolaBean Yarn Co colorway Mean Green.
