Something quick, fun, special, warm, …

Something is a set of a beanie and a cowl. They are worked back and forth, but also kind of in the round in 1 piece and completely seamless.
Off the needles and ready to wear.
And another good news is : there is absolutely no purling to do.

It’s best to know to use a circular needle with a minimum length of 80 cm / 31.5” and magic loop (schematics are included if you don’t know how to work magic loop). I didn’t try double pointed needles and I don’t know if it is possible, but I guess experts can do it.

The pattern is written for dk weight, but a recipe for other yarn weights or other dimensions is included

Size: 1 size
finished measurements: diameter: 50 cm / 20”, height: 18 cm / 7
