The Armonk Mommy & Me Cowl Set Free Crochet Patterns (and Yes, Daddy Too)

As an avid crocheter there are times when I love that the yarn does the "work" for me and I can create something that looks like it was twice as hard as it actually is to create. This is a handy dandy trick while making things for holidays and gifting. One fabulous yarn that does this trick is Scarfie by Lion Brand. This yarn though!!!

OK I have a confession: I had two balls of this yarn sitting in my studio for over a year. Lion Brand had graciously sent them to me to try out but I just was either so busy or had no idea what to make that they sat there. Eventually, while I was cleaning out my studio last month, I was reminded I had them and this time I was instantly inspired of what to make. Don't you love it when that happens!?

I decided to update my super popular MC Cowl & Snood Pattern, to a new mommy & Me set. And of course, can't forget Daddy Too! And what is so fabulous is that you can make the Mommy & Me Set with a single skein of Scarfie! You will need a half skein more for dad but hey, that happens lol.
