I love this! I may have to make some for the fall craft shows. I think they would be a huge hit.
These patterns are adorable and I live that you have a set that matches! Thank you
Such a cute idea! I have sock monkeys that my grandma made years ago, and I love this twist on that look!
I hit the jackpot with finding these patterns on your site. 🙂 So far, I have not been able to find a ‘marled’ yarn in either the black or the brown at a Michael’s Craft stores. I will try another Joann’s today and look for and acrylic by Bernat yarns as you mentioned. I have Aran and bright Red ready to go for these hats to donate for kids.
Thank you for ‘sharing’ the pattern. I saved it on my Raverly library . 🙂
I’m so glad you like it!
The yarn shortages hurt for sure!
Happy yarn hunting I hope you are able to find some!
A heathered Grey would also look lovely if the marked is too hard to find
Hello thank you for this. Was hoping you would have a matching thick sock pattern?
At this time there are only the 4 patterns in the set: beanie, scarf, ear warmer, and boot cuffs
