This lovely, versatile colorwork hat and cowl set features a floral motif inspired by our favorite winter bloom, Hellebore. Both the hat and cowl begin with a provisional cast on and are knit in the round. The hat features one repeat of the motif on a folded brim, while the cowl features the Hellebore motif gradually shrinking to allow for more and more of the gorgeous background color to take center stage. The cowl is joined in the round with the cast on stitches using Kitchener stitch for a seamless, versatile cowl.

This set is perfect for showcasing the beauty of single-ply merino wool in fingering weight. With its soft texture and excellent stitch definition, this yarn brings out the best of the colorwork motif. It’s easy to customize with your favorite colors to make a one-of-a-kind set that reflects your personal style.

Choose your favorite single-ply merino yarn in fingering weight to knit this set, or explore other yarn options to find the perfect match for your project.
