This Winter Set came into my head right away after I saw this incredible yarn. This yarn was given to me by Katia after meeting some amazing people in a craft event here in Netherlands. When I saw this beautiful pink color, I knew that I will make something for my daughter, because she is now at the “Pink Age”.
This Winter Set it’s the first pattern from the project “Knit & Crochet for Beginner”. I had this project in mind for long time ago and I am happy that I finally started.
Each month I will post here on the blog one super easy, beginner friendly pattern which will be knit or crochet. I want to show that crocheting or knitting can really be for anyone and anyone can make modern and cute thinks without having experienced skills. In this way crocheting and knitting will be so fun and relaxing without failing. :))
More, the PDF version of the pattern will be available for FREE here on the Website or on the other platforms.

About the stitch pattern.
For the cowl we will work just in continuous rounds using single crochet stitch pattern.
Abbreviations used in this pattern
- Ch – chain
- Sc – single crochet
- Sl st – slip st
- Sl st blo – slip stitch in the back loop only
- St(s) – stitch(es)
- 11 sc – 10 cm (4”) (6 mm hook)
- 13 rows sl st blo – 10 cm (4”) (7 mm hook)
- 13 sc rows – 10 cm (4”) (6 mm hook)
For reference, my model is 3,5 years old and wears a child size Beanie.
We will start with the sl st blo ribbing. For the brim I used a 7 mm crochet hook.
Ch 10 + 1. You can chain more if you want the brim to be higher.
1 sl st in each ch st to the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.
1 sl st blo in each stitch to the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.
Repeat row 2 until you have in total:
- Baby – 42 rows
- Toddler – 50 rows
- Child – 56 rows
- Women – 66 rows
- Men – 72 rows
Join the ends using sl sts.
Next, we will continue to work the rest of the beanie.
Start the round from your yarn is and make 1 sc in each sl st side row.
Continue round 2 by making 1 sc in the first st. Don’t make a sl st to join, at the end of round 1, just continue working sc in each st. Mark the first st using a stitch marker to know when your round starts and to keep the rounds count.
Continue working like this until you have in total:
- Baby – 16 rounds
- Toddler – 17 rounds
- Child – 18 rounds
- Women – 21 rounds
- Men – 26 rounds
To finish, sew the top stitches of the beanie using a yarn needle. Optional you can put a pom-pom.
The cowl is designed to wrap it twice around the neck.
- Baby – 80 sts
- Toddler – 96 sts
- Child – 108 sts
- Women – 128 sts
- Men – 140 sts
Sl stitch to make a circle.
We will work the same as we did for the beanie, in continuous round in single crochet.
You can make as many rounds as you want, depending on how high to be the cowl.
You can work:
- Baby – 13 rounds
- Toddler – 14 rounds
- Child – 15 rounds
- Women – 18 rounds
- Men – 23 rounds.
Fasten off and wave in all ends.
