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 matches – an O’GO Yarn crochet hat and mittens set 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 I also created a knit set: the Caron Sharon Knit Hat and Mitt Set.

A Little More About O’Go Yarn

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 tangle-free.

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 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 in five different colors in this colorway. You’ll note on the pattern that I’ve labeled each A – E so you can see which one to work with at any given point in the pattern. So, you’ll only 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 with 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.

Crochet Colorwork

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, you’ll learn with this pattern. Have you ever worked back post single crochet (Scbp)? Many people have only worked double and treble crochet post stitches, allowing you to put your skills to new use. The result is a lot of fun colorwork as you play with adaptations of techniques 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 gift this hat and mitt set to many people this year.)

Crochet Hooks

For this project, you’ll use two crochet hooks: Sizes U.S. G/6 (4 mm) and U.S. H/8 (5 mm) crochet hooks or sizes needed to obtain gauge. (Recommended: WeCrochet Hook or ergonomic TooShay Crochet Hook)


Notions: Locking stitch markers from WeCrochet, Chenille, and tapestry needles for weaving in ends
