Crossing into Winter Crochet Set


 The Crossing Into Winter set offers you a cowl, ear warmer and fingerless mitts made with a reversible cable. Add warmth and style with these layering pieces that can be worn together or separately.

The Crossing into Winter Set was inspired by the Treble Cross Stitch, which is much easier to make than it appears. It’s an easier way to create a cabled fabric to impress yourself and others.

I love a crochet accessory set that allows one to add some handmade style to an outfit while being practical, such as the Crossing into Winter Set.

I was only going to create the cowl, but I figured that an ear warmer would be a nice compliment, as I created the Making Waves Hat to be worn with the Making Waves Waistcoat. And what’s better than adding fingerless mitts to the set? Nothing, but more crochet patterns with the Treble Cross Stitch!

  1. the set looks so warm and cozy! It’s getting cooler here… I might need to make these and get ready for an early winter!

    1. This would be a great set for winter! It’s a fun texture to make, so 2 sets may be a good idea. *wink wink

    1. Oh boy! SoCal definitely is too warm for this set. Maybe there will be a trip to somewhere cold, and you can make the set for that trip.
