A fun and colourful hat and cowl set that’s easy and quick to knit in aran weight, or try using 2 strands of sport weight held together as we did for our samples. Worked in the round in stripes of colour, the vertical lines are added afterwards with a crochet hook or duplicate stitch. The cowl is worked as a simple tube, and the hat, with no crown shaping, is finished very simply with a 3-needle bind off, or if preferred, it can also be grafted together using Kitchener stitch. Tassles or pompoms complete the look.
