FO: Ponytail hat, cowl, and mittens set
I feel like starting with 'Sorry to bother you again' But here it is. Finished.

This set is a late Christmas gift for my friend. The hat has an opening for the ponytail (I should make myself one), the cowl and mittens are made to match the hat and her black coat. Here is the pattern for the hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hannah-4

Thanks! It is a very good hat design. I ran a search on Ravelry and asked my friend what kind of hat she likes. She chose this one right away and lucky for me it was a free pattern

Cute!

Is the hat more of a beanie so the bottom of the ears show? I can't tell if it's just the picture or if I just do mine longer. I usually knit about 6-7 inches from the edge to the first decrease. Just curious.

What a beautiful set! Depending on the weather, it will be great come St. Patrick's Day, too. Love it!!!! I have to try the hat and cowl myself. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me. Is there a free pattern link for the cowl?

You really do such lovely knitting.

Yes, it is like a beanie. Which is a good thing for her face type, so she can have her forehead open and her 'bangs' out.

Thank you! There is no written pattern for the cowl, it's my freestyling. However, it's very easy to make.

It is basicaly a turtleneck that gets wider with one row of increases.

Make a swatch of 3x2 ribbing over 20 stitches and measure it. Decide how many stitches you need for a comfortable fit. I think I had around 110 st but it was too scrunchy and was choking me gently, so I had to block it over a round object to make it a bit larger.

Cast on a desired number of stitches with a German or any other stretchy cast on. Proceed in k3p2 pattern for a desired length. (I was using 16' circular needles and then put it to 36' circulars for fiting process).

When you reach desired length for the neck, start increasing. Add one M1 between 2 purl stitches. (Pick up yarn between the stitches and purl through back loop). Proceed in 3x3 ribbing until you get bored, cast off loosely. That's it

(By the way, the hat is made holding thread double for the chunky look)
