Ginger Spice Slouch Hat and Cowl Set – A Free Pattern!

Hi Everyone! I was so excited this morning as a took my kids out for school! Even though we are well into Fall here in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, the weather has been unseasonably warm.  But this morning all that changed and it was finally cool enough for me to bundle up and show off my new Slouchy Hat and Cowl set!

This is what a cool crisp morning in rural Ontario looks like! Below I would like to share the pattern with you for this gorgeous set (along with some more photos!).  To make the set you will need two Caron Tea Cakes, or a yarn of the same weight as a substitute.  I also used a Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn which is %100 acrylic when testing the pattern and it worked up beautifully as well! So grab an 8mm hook, some super soft and cozy yarn and a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy!

Stitches and Abbreviations:

Ch – Chain

Hdc – Half double crochet

Hdc2tog – Half double crochet two together

Knit Stitch (ks) – Also called the “waistcoat stitch,” the knit stitch is a single crochet worked through the middle of the single crochet or knit stitch of the previous round.  Because you are working your stitch through the middle of the stitch in the previous round and pulling your loop up through the center, a knit look is created.

Knit Stitch 2 together (ks2tog) – Work the ks2tog as you would the sc2tog, but working through the space in the stitch of the previous round that you would typically work a knit stitch.

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sc2tog – Single crochet two together

Sk – Skip

Sl st – Slip stitch

 

Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Pattern is worked in rounds from the bottom of hat to the top.
  • Ch 1 at beg of rnd does not count as sc or hdc.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • I find the knit stitch works best when your tension is kept quite loose. Loose stitches allow for you to insert the hook in the proper space more easily.
  • To work in the 3rd loop: In the hdc stitch, the  “third loop” is found at the back of the stitch, below the top two loops that you would normally complete your stitch in.  When you crochet in this back loop, it should push the top of the stitch from the previous round to the front of your work creating a “knit” look.
