Running On Yarn Cowl & Hat – Crochet Patterns By The Firefly Hook

Running On Yarn Hat & Cowl By The Firefly Hook

With all of the wisdom and metaphorical power of a fable, these four delicate fingering weight yarn strands are joined together to create a bulky yarn of gorgeous heft. When you join smaller yarns together and use it as one strand, you are left with something that is greater than the sum of its parts. It is at once bulky yet flexible.

The Hat: It is the perfect choice for this beginner stitch that manages to look extremely complicated. Never fear if you’re not ready to try a bobble stitch, this hat has all the fun and charm of a more difficult stitch but manages it with a sandwich of easier stitches.

The Cowl: The simple, familiar stitch is relaxing but the trim gives this cowl a delicate feel. It’s just enough of a challenge for a beginner who has mastered a handful of basic stitches.

  1. I tested the hat. The hat has a unique bobble that it is easy to crochet. The hat can be worn with a turned up brim or slouchy.
