Frosty Braided Beanie and Cowl

Spread the love

Have you ever desired a cabled crochet beanie and cowl set but not a fan of cables? Well, you are not alone! The tutorial is a Knit and cable look-alike while using basic stitches. You would love the warmth and texture this set provides.

The inspiration for this beanie was brought about from a similar knitted beanie I saw and loved.

I had to come up with a much easier method as some people find making cables to be challenging. For my cable loving friends, don’t worry this is something you would also love to make.

If the weather is already cold where you are, you might want to make some cute crochet beanie and cowl to keep warm while remaining fashionable in your handmade set.

The best thing about the Cowl is that you can customize it to fit your preferences. The original pattern was made 2 years ago and I have reviewed it and tested it again to accommodate the changes made. The pattern included instructions as to how you can make a much smaller Cowl. If you love to have a bigger cowl, you are also covered. There is something special for all.

Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and let’s start the fun of making this pattern.
