Meet the Acorn Hat and Fingerless Mitts! This is the second C2C, corner to corner, design by Creations by Courtney!

After making the Acorn Cowl, I had to make a hat and mitts to complete the set. C2C is such a fun technique in crochet, especially for color work projects. I love the texture and working on a diagonal in this technique, which can be tricky to get the hang of at first for the decreases to make a straight edge.

I chose to make a hat because why not? But also, in the brown color, it perfectly captures the acorn vibe. 😁. I think fingerless mitts are great projects for trying out new techniques in a small size before tackling something larger, and one of the best crochet accessories! They keep your hands warms but allow you still easily use your fingers.


Once seeing the wide array of colors for Color Made Easy, I just had to grab Kombucha! The color reminds me of fall and winter (without snow), and was very similar in color to the Acorn Cowl. Why not have a matching hat and fingerless gloves for the cowl? As with most C2C, corner to corner, projects, it’s a quick project, and requires only one skein to make the adult size. If you’re familiar with C2C, it’s easy to adjust the size to make smaller.
