Chic accessories for year-round wear
The Scorpio Mitten is the fourth pattern in the Scorpio lineup, and it’s the most advanced of the bunch, giving you the opportunity to challenge yourself and truly master the art of interlocking crochet. Having previously completed an easier pattern, such as the Scorpio Cowl, will be beneficial before starting the mittens. The Scorpio Mittens introduce two new techniques: joining two pieces of fabric together while working in pattern, and decreasing in interlocking pattern. Just like the all the other designs in the #MyZodiacSweater collection, for the reversible section of these mittens you’ll only have to work with 1 color at a time, dropping the inactive yarn at the start of a round and picking it back up at the start of the new round.
The Scorpio Cowl uses the same reversible stitch pattern as the Scorpio Raglan and Beanie, so you can make yourself a matching set. Even though it’s the third design published in the Scorpio lineup, the cowl is probably the easiest to master. It’s worked from the bottom up in rounds and can be easily adjusted both in circumference and in height in order to fit your vision.
A sister pattern to the Scorpio Raglan, the Scorpio Beanie uses the same reversible stitch pattern so you can make yourself a matching set. The beanie is worked from the top down, starting with the crown and increasing your way down until you reach the final circumference. This is where the interlocking fun starts! Just like the all the other designs in the #MyZodiacSweater collection, for the reversible section of this beanie you’ll only have to work with 1 color at a time, dropping the inactive yarn at the start of a round and picking it back up at the start of the new round.
The 2x2 Crochet Hat is worked from side to side, featuring crown shaping achieved with the short rows technique. The extended half double crochet and slip stitch pattern mimics the beloved 2x2 ribbed fabric from knitting. The crochet fabric provides a thicker hat with more structure, yet it is just as stylish. The hat is very stretchy and is intended to be worn with 3-6” (7.5-15 cm) of negative ease. Depending on your yarn and fiber, the elasticity of the fabric may change. This pattern allows for an easy modification of the circumference in order to account for different elasticities.
The Sagittarius Beanie is the sister-pattern to the Sagittarius Sweater, both published in the Zodiac Crochet Collection – a series of crochet garments and accessories that follow a common theme: colorwork made easy. Use hashtag #MyZodiacSweater when posting your makes on social media!

The folds drape beautifully at the back of the head, allowing for the beautiful alpine stitch pattern to peek through.
