Free Infinate Twilight Hat and Cowl Set Pattern

Imagine how happy I was to see Red Heart had some new yarns in their Boutique line! I just love that line.. the whole thing. Infinity is a bulky #5 and Twilight is a super bulky #6 both are blends of acrylic, polyester, and nylon, with Infinity also having some wool and Twilight having metallic. You can find out more about these yarns and all the great yarns they carry on the Red Heart website- plus there are great free patterns as well.

They were both a joy to work with and the projects worked up fast. I was able to make both pieces of the set below with one ball of each, two balls total.  

To make the set I used:
Red Heart Boutique Twilight in the shade Romantic (this is my new favorite yarn ever EVER)
Red Heart Boutique Infinity in the shade Enchanted 
L 8mm Hook
P 11.5mm Hook

Join Twilight Yarn anywhere and make a SC boarder row all the way around

Cut 6 strips of Twilight yarn I made mine 60 inches
Use three strips on each side. In the corner of the flap on each side string in the three strips and pull them through until they are even. Tie , you will now have 6 strands on each side (3 folded in half) braid loosely and tie the ends.
