Fuzzy Bee Winterset | Free Crochet Pattern | Stardust Gold Crochet

The Fuzzy Bee 🐝 WinterSet was born out of this beautiful yarn that I found at Hobby Lobby called Tender Touch (which happens to be on sale today, but dang, they are sold out of a lot of colors, so maybe head to the local store nearby?)

I wanted to design a set where each aspect (beanie, hand warmers, cowl) use up 1 skein of yarn! It worked out perfectly (almost!) 🀏, so you will need 4 skeins total. I am absolutely in love with this set. They are created using basic stitches with a beautiful textured striped accent.

A little bit about the yarn…

Hobby Lobby Tender Touch is a bulky (5) weight yarn, and comes in all sorts of colors, including soft blues, pinks, browns & gray’s. There are so many to choose from. This yarn has been around for a while and I don’t think it’s going anywhere, but just in case, I will post below some great yarn subs!

Yarn subs…

The best place to check for a yarn substitute is at Yarn Sub website here.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

The Beanie:

The brim is worked first, joined, then worked in rounds to top and sewn together. Add a pom pom as you want.

The Hand Warmers:

These are worked in the round, top down, with thumbs added afterwards.

The Cowl:

The cowl is worked flat in rows and buttons attached.

Here is one from my testers! Thank you to all the testers, I really appreciate you working through this pattern with me. Forever grateful πŸ’— πŸ’– πŸ’ž – Isn’t she adorable!!!

+ Pattern Notes – Please Read


  • Beanie is constructed by working the brim first, then working in the round, with turns.
  • Mittens are worked in the round; thumb is added later.
  • See pattern for where to place first st, if not mentioned in pattern, it is made in same as ch.
  • Always skip stitch behind front post stitchess, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Sizing is written in pattern as follows: (S, M, L, XL)

Tips:  You don’t have to work super tight, make sure you meet the gauge. Some of my testers ended up using more yarn than I did, and I’m not super sure why? πŸ™ƒ
