Quantity in Stock: 94
This listing is for a digital crochet pattern only - it does not include the final product and is a downloaded pattern only.
The pattern is a for my Light Fantastic Cowl.
The pattern is designed as an easy to intermediate pattern with helpful pictures and instructions all the way through.
You will need:
- Yarn - approximately 10 x 20g mini skeins in DK or 4ply (fingering/sock weight) yarn. 450m/492 yards of DK yarn or 800m/874m of 4ply. If you’re undecided between 4ply and DK, the 4ply is slightly wider and shorter, and has more of a drape, whereas the DK is slightly longer, narrower and much more squishy! The patterns are slightly different with a different repeat, so do make sure you follow the right one!
- Preferred yarn: Hand dyed mini skeins would work best - a set of 10 in a fade or rainbow effect, or 2 sets of 5 would give a more regular colour repeat. It would be a great use of part of an advent calendar for example! I (The Crafty Bird) dye some great options, and some of my favourite Indie Dyers are The Fibre Fox, Made by Penguins, Knit me Sane, Castle View Yarns, Adventures in Yarncraft, Pigment and Ply, Skein and the Stitch. But you can use any other yarn you like too. You just need 20g of any yarn in 10 colours or you could use 5 colours and have more repeats - the possibilities are endless! The DK version in the pattern uses a rainbow eyed by me and the 4ply version uses a Blackberry Picking set on Yak sock minis by The Fibre Fox.
- Other big brand yarn favourites to use are: Stylecraft Special DK Sirdar Country Classic 4ply or DK Scheepjes Stonewash DK James C Brett DK with Merino West Yorkshire Spinners Bo Peep 4ply or DK King Cole Baby 4ply Sirdar Snuggly DK Any other DK or 4ply yarn would be fine.
- Crochet Hook 4mm/ Size F for 4ply or 5mm/Size H for DK
- Yarn Needle

If you have never crocheted before, I would advise watching some YouTube tutorials before starting on the hat. A great one to watch is Blossom Crochet (no affiliate or linked, just trying to be helpful!)
