Easy Crochet tutorial for Beanie and Cowl for Preemie to Adult sizes using your best #3 (DK) weight yarn

A few months ago, I made a sun hat using the same design used in this easy beanie and cowl pattern. Since designing that sun hat, I knew straight away that I would eventually make many designs using the stitches. One of the reasons I love the stitch is that it is addictive, soothing, and full of beautiful Texture.

Another good thing about this set is that it is size inclusive! The easy beanie and cowl pattern was written and tested from Preemie sizes up to Adult large sizes. However, I felt Babies can choke with cowls and have omitted their size.

This Beanie is part of the free patterns available to raise awareness on Cancer, for those battling any form of cancer. Each day of the week, there is a new hat pattern available for download with each download a pledge to support someone with Cancer.

My Easy breezy Beanie is made for all forms of cancer because they all suck. I want you to follow this quick and easy pattern and make some (as many as you can) to support those suffering from cancer. Check out Sweet Potato 3 for more details about this, read the FAQ below.

Why I choose all forms of cancer

No one deserves to go through the agony of battling Cancer, not the patients nor the relatives and loved ones. In my profession, I have seen so many people of all age groups go through this.

On October 20th, 2020 my easy breezy Beanie is Featured in the Crochet Cancer Challenge Hosted by Sweet Potato 3.

Not only would you love your makes from the easy beanie and cowl pattern, but would also fall in love with the beautiful stitch and texture in the set. I made a pullover using the stitch and the end result is breathtaking. You can grab the bundle (easy beanie and cowl pattern alongside the pullover here)

Since this stitch is addictive, and supper easy to follow, I have added a cowl (neck warmer) as a free pattern also. Scroll down t the Cowl pattern
