Paired Up Toque and Neck Warmer – A Free Crochet Pattern

I, like so many others, really enjoy using Caron Cakes Yarn. For these two patterns you’ll only need one!

Shortly after the first ones came out, I designed a messy Bun hat. I called it the paired up messy Bun hat because of the stitches it used and the fact that you could make two hats from the one Cake.

This year I decided to update the pattern, making it a full Toque instead!

I have used a faux fur Pom-Pom (purchased from Northern Bay Fibres on Etsy), but you may add your own handmade one, or leave it without.

I have paired up this hat with an updated version on my Island Cowl. When made using this pattern, it ends up being slightly smaller, more in the style of a neck warmer. Because of this it is possible to make the hat and neck warmer from one Cake! How great is that? Both patterns feature stitches with great versatility and texture. I am sure they will be a set that you love.

You will find the patterns for the hat and neck warmer written out in full below. But if you would like a convenient, downloadable copy you may purchase one FROM RAVELRY HERE or FROM ETSY HERE. You may also use those links to save it to your favourites!

Thank you so much for stopping by, be sure to come back soon! And don’t forget to follow me on Facebook HERE.

In the mean time, happy Crocheting!
