Beginner Cable Hat and Scarf Set
If you’ve never crocheted cables before, this classic hat and scarf set is a simple and stylish introduction to this easy technique. Double crochet post stitches and clusters create a fun texture that shows off the beauty of the soft, wool blend yarn. The intertwining stitches dance across these gorgeous accessories, creating a set you can dress up or down.
