Knit & Crochet: Cozy Set

This blog post has been a long time in the making—in every sense of the expression. It took me a while to make these pieces, however they have been sitting in a pile for months. Now that fall has arrived, I feel like it’s ok to post my stockpiled projects. This is my way of welcoming my favourite season!

Cozy Set | Yarn, Things, Etc.

The hat, which fits quite large, worked up quickly as I have made so many before. The gloves and cowl were new to me. I don’t think I’ll make the cowl again; the mittens are another story. I’ve become obsessed with thick yarn and have made a pair of mittens a day for almost a week (I wish I was kidding).

The instructions and reference links below might be helpful should you want to make this trio. Happy fall!
