If you’re looking for a stylish, super cosy set to keep you warm and toasty this Winter, how about this cute Cosy Winter Hugs set of a crochet linen stitch scarf and ear warmer by today’s guest designer Heather of Hev’s Home Crochet? Made from one of my favourite stitches, the Linen (aka the Moss) stitch, this pair of Winter warmers are made from beautifully thick yarn so they’re quick to make, warm to wear and totally on trend. The stripe design adds some extra oomph, while keeping things classic and timeless.
Heather herself says, ” I adore a cosy winter accessory, who doesn’t?! I love nothing more
than a chunky yarn and a simple stitch. Honestly a quick and simple make is what I live for and
this design is no expectation. One of Bella Coco’s own tutorials actually inspired me to use the
linen stitch to create this beginner friendly, textured and effective colour changing scarf and ear

From a small town in Bedfordshire I enjoy all things crochet, yarn and tea!
I started crocheting in 2016 when a work colleague mentioned how amazing it was. I’d dabbled in knitting before (the old my granny taught me story) but actually never really heard of crochet. I got myself down to the bargain store that lunch time, bought some yarn and a hook and I’ve never looked back!
In 2019 I had a beautiful daughter and thought my maternity leave would be the perfect time to start a business. Great idea until she actually arrived! Nothing ever goes as planned but I decided after selling a few pre-made products for a year that it wasn’t for me. I didn’t want to give crochet up completely, I really enjoyed the calming feels and all the creativity. After a chat with a few really encouraging friends who I’d actually met on Instagram through craft, I made the jump to pattern designing and here I am today.
