Monkey Bars Winter Set, a Crochet Pattern


Monkey Bars Winter Set is a crochet pattern for this cute winter accessories set for children. This one size stretches to fit children from ages 4 to 12. In fact, the hat will even fit an adult, it is so stretchy, but you may want to make it a bit longer to fit an adult. I can actually wear this same hat that my daughter wore at age 7. The pattern stitch is also hightly textured, with these lines and square spaces. I call it the “waffle stitch.”  The lines and spaces reminded me of monkey bars, and I was going for names that reminded me of the fun and sweetness of childhood.

The Bernat Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn has been discontinued, unfortunately. It was a soft, slightly fuzzy, worsted weight, machine-washable, wool blend. Five skeins, or about 835 yds, were needed to make the whole set. I haven’t found a perfect replacement yarn for this. I’ve looked quite a bit, but not found a yarn that is worsted weight, single ply, acrylic and wool, and machine washable. So, I invite you to find a worsted weight yarn that you love for this pattern.

This pattern stitch uses post stitches. So you’ll need to know how to do post stitches. I did a tutorial on post stitches awhile back here on my blog. Click here to see it!
