Loving this Stitch? Crochet a Matching Cowl and Hat!

The Cookies and Cream patterns just scream “cream filled cookies” don’t they!? The moss stitch in this pattern creates a subtle but beautiful and modern texture, and it is a very forgiving stitch when it comes to working with darker yarns (this lamp also helped A LOT!). If you selected some darker colorways of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn for this event, the Cookies and Cream Mittens would be a good one to use it with! And then if you fall in love as I suspect you will ;) you can go right on to making the Cowl from my 2017 collection and the Cookies and Cream Hat that I posted as a Seven Days of Scarfie teaser pattern this summer.

Pattern Notes

  • The chain stitches at the beginning of each row/round do not count as a stitch. 

  • The last stitch of each round is attached to the first stitch of the round with a slip stitch.

  • This pattern is written to fit an average adult woman.  The size can easily be adjusted by adding or subtracting rounds.  Additions or subtractions should happen between rounds 4-21

  • The thumb size can be easily adjusted by crocheting more or fewer stitches into the thumb space on your first round (10, 12, 14, etc).  Length can be adjusted by adding/subtracting rounds.
