Inspiration: 

Hello hello! One fine day, I was playing around with my cream yarn wanting to make a quick beanie for myself this winter. I wanted to come up with a pattern that was easy and quick but also had a pretty texture to it. After playing around with a few stitches I decided that speed would be priority for this beanie. It works up super fast! I had so much fun crocheting this that I had to make matching wrist warmers and leg warmers. As a special thank you to you, I wanted to offer this pattern as a FREE PDF download.

I hope you enjoy making and wearing this as much as me!

Yarn used

A chunky weight 5 yarn is used to create the White Winter set. This is so that the set works up fast, keeps us warm and the pattern looks great. Any weight 5 yarn can be used which is available locally for maker.

Construction

The wrist warmers are worked from bottom up. Work the ribbing first in rows, then make the body in rounds and add the border last.

Skills Used

  • Knowledge of basic crochet stitches, techniques and terminology is assumed in written pattern, refer to video if absolute beginner, all stitches explained in detail, even a beginner can create this pattern as their first project.
  • Overall I would give this set an easy absolute beginner level rating and it is a fun project for advanced and intermediate crocheters who want to create gifts that work up quick.
  • You will need to maintain an accurate stitch count.
  • Working in turned rounds.
  • Working in back loops and front loops.

Skill level  

Easy, beginner tutorial available.

Size

To determine the size you would like to make, measure the wrist circumference. Measure with a measuring tape just below the knuckles, around thumb and hand. See tutorial for exact placement of measuring tape.

Material 

  1. Similar yarn: lion brand
  2. Crochet hook: 6 mm
  3. Tapestry needle
  4. Stitch markers
  5. Scissors
  6. Tape measure
  7. Tape measure simple
  8. Yarn winder

Yarn: Any chunky or bulky or weight 5 yarn of choice can be used.

Suggested yarn: Lion Brand Hue + Me/ Lion Brand Jiffy/ Gentle Yarn by Big Twist. This pattern should work well with a range of acrylic and animal fibres of the same yarn weight (I do not recommend cotton or plant based fibres for winter accessories). Different fibres and yarns will produce a different finished result. Always swatch with your chosen yarn to ensure you are happy with the resulting fabric and match gauge before starting.

I have used a local yarn which is 100% acrylic. Yardage: 145 m/ 158 yards in 100/ 3.5 oz of yarn. Each skein has 100 g.

Approx amount needed: 80 (92, 116, 138) g or 127 (146, 183, 218) yards (more or less may be needed depending on alterations made to fit).

Crochet hook:

6 mm or J size hook. Adjust size to match gauge.

Notions:

Tapestry needle, scissors, measuring tape.

Stitch marker is not really needed unless you plan to try on the hat as a beginner, then it will keep the stitches from unraveling.

Blocking:

You may wish to block this project, I gave mine a gentle steam block (after placing my finished item on a flat surface) to relax the stitches a little and help the stitches to stand out, but found it didn’t need more than that being an acrylic yarn.

Hey everybody! Today, I've got something super exciting to share with you all - it's my latest crochet project, the Cadie Cowl!

Hi, I’m Aki! I love designing patterns and love teaching. I use lots of stitches and colors and try to simplify everything because all patterns become easy once simplified. I mostly create womens garments in all sizes. I hope you enjoy!
