Stay cosy with the Bellever tapestry crochet hat and cowl pattern
Although we’re (finally!) coming to the end of January, there’s still a definite nip in the air. So why not cheer yourself up with some cosy new accessories like my new tapestry crochet Bellever Hat and Cowl set? With their fun colourwork design, and gorgeous cosy ribbing, you’ll be sure to wear them time and time again.
The pattern uses DK yarn in two colours. I made mine with the fabulously soft and and smooth West Yorkshire Spinners Bo Peep Pure yarn, which is 100% wool.
I’ve also made another hat in some brighter colours, with Scheepjes Colour Crafter, which turned out rather smashing as well. This is a 100% acrylic yarn and makes a great alternative to wool.
The hat and cowl patterns
The hat and cowl patterns come as set, with a separate pdf file for each of them. They are provided in both UK and US crochet terms and include full written instructions and explanations. They also include a chart for the colourwork pattern.
Tapestry crochet tutorial
The hat and cowl are made using tapestry crochet. The pattern includes a link to my video tutorial on this technique.
Foundation double (or single) crochet tutorial
I’ve also filmed a new tutorial showing how to do the foundation double (or single, in US terms) crochet stitch. I use this stitch to start off both the hat and the cowl.
This is a really great way of starting off your crochet projects that are made in rows. Even if you’re not planning on making the Bellever hat or cowl, I’d definitely recommend having a watch. This stitch is a bit of a game-changer if, like me, you’re not a fan of crocheting into a starting chain. The tutorial is about 6 minutes long and you can watch it here.
I really hope you enjoy this new pattern and I can’t wait to see your makes. Do tag me in any social media posts if you have a go at it – I’d love to see!
