O’Go Yarn Crochet Hat and Mittens Set
I’ve shared O’Go Yarn with you in the past. There are so many great things that you can make with this yarn, of course. Today, I’ve got a new set for you. It’s a matching set of O’GO Yarn crochet hat and mittens that takes full advantage of the color array in Caron® Big Donut O’Go. It’s called the Caron Shannon Crochet Hat and Mitt Set.
Note: This is a matching crochet pattern set. You know I love being bicrafty so of course I’ve created a knit set as well: the Caron Sharon Knit Hat and Mitt Set.

A Little More About O’Go Yarn
Just as a reminder, O’Go Yarn isn’t a specific type of yarn. Instead, it’s a format for yarn delivery. For example, you usually purchase your yarn in either balls or skeins right? Well, you can also opt to purchase some brands in the O’Go yarn donut format. It’s designed to allow you to easily pull the yarn in a tangle-free fashion.
Moreover, there are two ways to work with the yarn’s color array. You can either work it straight through the colors for a self-striping or color-blocking project or you can easily separate out the colors to work with the ones you want at any given time. This makes it great for colorwork, which I’ve showcased in this new O’Go Yarn crochet hat and mittens set.
Caron Shannon Crochet Hat and Mitt Set
This O’Go Yarn crochet hat and mitt set is designed for intermediate crocheters who are interested in playing with unique techniques that emphasize color.
The Caron Shannon Crochet Hat and Mitt set uses the Caron® Big Donut O’Go yarn. I’ve chosen Lemon Plum as the best colorway for this pattern. The donut itself comes with five different colors in this colorway. You’ll note on the pattern that I’ve labeled each of them A – E so you can see which one to work with it any give point in the pattern. So, you’re only going to buy one colorway, but you’ll get five colors to work with.
Note that Caron® Big Donut O’Go comes in about ten colorways. However, a few of these are solids. Since this is a colorwork project, you want to stick to the options that have five colors on the donut. That still gives you more than half a dozen colorways to choose from. Therefore, although I like Lemon Plum, you might choose another colorway such as Blue Velvet or Mint Julep.
I really wanted crocheters to be able to use this pattern to play with unique colorwork. We’re doing this by changing colors but also using very unique stitches. Have you ever worked split single crochet? If not, then you’ll get the opportunity to learn with this pattern. Have you ever worked back post single crochet (Scbp)? Many people have only worked double and treble crochet post stitches so this allows you to put your skills to new use. The result is a lot of fun colorwork as you play with adaptations on techniques that you likely already know.
Materials for O’Go Yarn Crochet Hat and Mittens Set
Here are the materials that you’ll need to complete this crochet project.
You’ll use just one donut for this project! Yes, for the whole set. So, order one Caron® Big Donut O’Go yarn in your preferred colorway. (Or, get a few, since you could definitely gift this hat and mitt set to a lot of different people in your life this year.)
