Baby it's cold outside...

It's really cold here in Oklahoma, so I decided that I needed a cold weather set for myself to enjoy Smiley These were all made with tunisian 3 color crochet (I think I glanced at a tutorial on 3 color tunisian crochet somewhere on craftster) and some single and double crochets thrown in the mix. I absolutely love how they turned out! Plus, they are so nice and warm!

For the hat, I did a regular beanie style for a couple of rows (7 increase rows and 2 non-increase rows), then counted up how many stitches were around the bottom. Tunisian crocheted on a different hook a couple inches wide and for as many stitches that I had counted for the bottom of the hat, sewed it into a circle and then crocheted it onto the bottom of the hat.

For the cowl, I simply tunisian stitched a long rectangle and sewed it into a circle.

For the gloves, I tunisian stitched a rectangle for each glove into a rectangle that would fit around my hand. Immediately switched to a row of single crochet and then 4 rows of double crochet, then folded it in half to stitch up the sides leaving an opening for my thumb. I used the first row of the tunisian stitch as the top of the glove because it has a decorative edge to it. You also can't see it in the picture, but I did crochet up the thumbs to the knuckle for added warmth. Once I figure out how to do the top rounded portion of a mitten, I will be adding the finger covers (so that I can put them on or take them off).

Thanks for looking!

Cool effect with the stripes. Makes me want to bust out my doubled-ended tunisian hook and get all nice n cozy.

Pretty! I really like the look of Tunisian crochet. I'm seeing it here and there.
