If you have a LOT of things to make you will want chunky patterns that work up quickly! And a little pizzazz to keep you engaged and enjoying the P.O.R. (Pattern on Repeat).


That is WHY I created the the "On The Bias Chunky Cowl and Beanie" patterns!



I wanted a design that would do all of these things:

Unique stitch patterns, fun construction, works up quickly, and then make another one and enjoy it!


So I grabbed my favorite Super Chunky yarn and created this gorgeous set! It will look glorious in stacks on your booth table, or smartly wrapped in ribbon for all the family members on your "make a crochet gift" list!



Ok, swoon over. the tools needed are fairly basic: Yarn, Hook, Tapestry Needle, and Scissors. I like to keep a measuring tape so I can make sure the size is close (gauge is not super vital on the cowl, but you will want to watch it a bit on the beanie!) You might want to make sure you have a PomPom maker, or get you some cute Faux Fur Poms for the hats!

I also always recommend having a good collection of Progress keepers and stitch markers. Stitch markers aren't vital to this pattern if you are experienced, but it can be difficult to count the rows on the bias if you aren't use to the pattern! But Progress Keeper to hold that live loop when you set it down IS vital. I'm getting spooked just thinking about losing stitches on a market prep day!




To the yarn! I used 3 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn co. Hometown, or 250 yards of any category 6 Super Bulky yarn for the Cowl, and 2 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn co. Hometown, or 130 yards of any category 6 Super Bulky yarn for the Beanie.


I also made a few in level 4 Worsted and Level 5 Bulky held double. Both turned out great. The Bulky held double was thicker than the Super bulky single so watch it on the hats (Worsted double was about perfect!). But they all worked up into gorgeous and squishy pieces!

For the hook, I used a 10mm/P hook Again. Gauge is really only going to be important for the beanie!



Ok, let's the get to the patterns!

Finish:

Using the tail, MS the short sides together making sure to line up the Front post rows that intersect along the edge (I like to make a loop between the last Front post stitches to give the illusion of the front post stitches crossing the seam). Lightly block to even up any wobbly edges, and weave in any remaining end!
