In this post I want to share with you a Unisex crochet design, the Herringbone Beanie and Cowl Set.

In the Herringbone Crochet Set you will find 3 sizes to choose from:  Teen, Small & Large Adult.  The good thing about this crochet pattern is that it can be customized to fit your style, size, and color!  The stitch count is a multiple of 6, so it you want to make a smaller or larger size, you can use the multiple of 6.

As I stated above, the Herringbone Beanie and Cowl Set Crochet Pattern is a Unisex crochet pattern.  My husband and I modeled the set, so as you can see it fits men and women.  You will find some wonderful versions from my testers of the set at the bottom of this post.
