The Yarn I Used…

I made the hat and cowl using 3 skeins of super bulky yarn – in blue – I used Hayfield Super Chunky With Wool in shade 0056.

1 skein or a scrap of light grey for the hat brim and pom (I used Yarn Art Alpine in 334) suitable for size 10.00mm (US 15) needles.

Lion Brand wool ease thick and quick or something similar (Super Bulky) would also be fine to use.
