When making this crocheted hat & cowl combo, I used chunky yarn in colors that match his winter coat and neutral corresponding colors. The hat is a simple winter cap, with an embroidered first initial and an accent colored line above it. I also used the accent color at the top of the hat. The cowl is a simple round infinity cowl done in stripes that include the hat colors, plus one more corresponding neutral. This set is super fast to make, a couple hours tops!
