School is back in session and now’s the time to start making your gift lists. Here are some little projects that will get those gifts moving! There are lots of choices here which will fill a variety of styles. Give the classic look of cables, the whimsical snow man or choose a traditional stretchy rib beanie. If you can’t decide, the fingerless mitts are sure to please boys and girls of all ages.
1. Hunter’s Cowl It’s made in bright orange for your favorite hunter, but make it in any color you like. I love it when walking those cold streets of downtown Chicago to cover up the exposed neck, mouth and nose. Don’t you hate it when your nose hairs freeze??!!

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
