The Hannah Ear Warmer and Cowl Set

The Hannah Ear Warmer and Cowl Set

There is a simple elegance to the Hannah Ear Warmer and Cowl set. I don’t know about where you are but here it is getting cold quickly this year! The leaves haven’t fallen off the trees and crunch under foot, they have just gone soggy and stick to your shoes!

This is the perfect time of year for a good ear warmer and cowl. And, of course, they make great gift sets.

Do you make items to keep or gift?

Almost all of what I make is gifted either as donations or as gifts. Quite often my daughter will try to claim it all for herself. It seems that the only thing I keep for me is the odd hat, scarf or cowl. Do you do the same? I wish I had kept some of my items but in my heart I know that they would have just looked pretty in the wardrobe or have been put away for the next 3 years.

But not this set!

This set I have kept. It is just so practical and handy for me. We have dogs and so it is perfect for walking them along our beach, or throwing them on and getting in the car to run errands.

Don’t tell anyone but I am also designing a Hannah beanie to go with it for when the temperatures really do plummet and I need a hat. This one will be double brimmed and is super warm. More about that later 🙂

Isn’t the texture fabulous?!!

Materials you will need:

Gauge:

Not important as long as your starting row is the correct length as per the info in the sizing and pattern notes sections.

 

Sizing:

Pattern for the earwarmer is written for several sizes – child(age 4-12)/ teen/ women’s small/ medium/ large. The length of your foundation row will be 18’’ (19’’/20’’/21’’/22’’) with a width of approx. 3.5’’ for child sizes and 4.25’’ for adult.

The cowl sizes are age 4-12 (27’’ x 10.5’’)/ teen (29’’ x 12’’) /  adult (32’’ x 13.5’’) so the length of your foundation row will be 27’’/29’’/32’’

 

 

Abbreviations:

  • Ch(s)–chain(s)
  • St(s)–stitch(es)
  • rep–repeat
  • sk—skip
  • fhdc – foundation half double crochet
  • hdc—half double crochet
  • sc – single crochet
  • N St – N stitch (see special stitches)
  • YO—yarn over
  • FO—fasten off

Pattern Notes:

  • Written in US terms.
  • Ch1 stitches at the beginning do not count as a st unless otherwise stated.
  • Please ensure that you note how the sizes are differentiated as per the sizing information above.
  • To alter the sizing make sure you have an even number of stitches at the end of round 1.

 

Special Stitches:

The Hannah set uses the N Stitch. If you have never worked it before please do not be intimidated by the name or the look of it – it isn’t a difficult stitch. In fact, we have a YouTube tutorial for it. You can find this below. We also have a left handed version on our YouTube Channel.

To work the N stitch: Sk 1 st, hdc in the next st, insert hook from the top to the bottom of the front loop only of the skipped stitch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through one loop, YO, insert the hook back into the st you did the hdc, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Fhdc: I find this has a more aesthetically pleasing finish than the chain starts to projects. You can find our tutorial on the foundation stitches: For right handed crocheter the video is linked below. We also have left handed tutorial for this on our YouTube Channel. I find this has a more aesthetically pleasing finish than the chain starts to projects.

 

Camel St     This is also known as “third loop” hdc. To do this:

YO, insert hook into the THIRD loop of the HDC from the previous row (this will be a horizontal bar below the two loops you normally work into. If working in the round, it will be on the INSIDE of your work). Pull up a loop, YO and pull thru all 3 loops on your hook.

You can find our video tutorial on how to do this here :
