Inge Hat and Cowl [Exclusive Images]

Date: 14th October 2014 | Category: Issue 58


Claire Montgomerie's 2-in-1 Hat/Cowl from issue 58 combines a pretty and unique stitch with a fabulous chunky yarn to create a simple, versatile accessory that works up extremely quickly.

As well as Inside Crochet's sample, Claire hooked up another version of her Inge Hat/Cowl using her my favourite colour (citrus 08) in Debbie Bliss Roma. (Below)

The bold texture of this pretty stitch looks fabulous in a chunky yarn, and this simple, versatile accessory works up extremely quickly.

Try any bulky yarn here. We find Debbie Bliss Roma or Rowan Big Wool work particularly well.
