It’s that time of year that I love to call “crochet season.” It’s getting colder and we all love to cozy up inside of or underneath our crochet makes! If you love to make cozy projects for yourself, to donate, to gift, or to sell at craft fairs, you’ll love the Warm My Heart Blog Hop and Pattern Bundle. Inside the Warm My Heart Pattern Bundle, you’ll find 30 wonderful crochet patterns by your favorite designers for projects to keep you and your loved ones warm!

The Warm My Heart Blog Hop and Pattern Bundle is organized by Susanna from Fosbas Designs and Katarina from Crochet with Frankie Kate. Cowls are one of my favorite last-minute gift ideas and quick, winter projects to make, so I thought a super bulky crochet cowl pattern would be perfect for the Warm My Heart Blog Hop and Pattern Bundle since its great for gifting or wearing right away!

King Cole Big Value Super Chunky Tints yarn is a super bulky weight, soft acrylic yarn in great variegated colorways. It’s just right for making something cozy and quick! Big Value Super Chunky Tints is available from your local yarn shop.

My contribution to the Warm My Heart Blog Hop and Pattern Bundle is the Dylan Cowl. This is the type of “mindless” project that I love to work on while watching streaming shows, commuting, or even hanging out with family and friends during the holidays. It works up super fast in the super bulky yarn so it’s ideal for the TRULY last-minute gift or even if you forgot your scarf while you’re traveling for the holidays.
