Toy Run accessories

I wanted to make a matched set of accessories to wear during this year's Toy Run. So I crocheted these oversized hand warmers (big enough to fit over my winter riding gloves and based on the pattern found here), ribbed neck cowl (won't blow off or come untied during the ride the way traditional scarves sometimes will) and flowered beanie for apres ride. Just for fun, I crocheted Britta Graham's Easy Peasy Earflap Hat (missing its plaited tassels in this photo) in the same yarn, so now I'm not sure which hat I'll use after the ride, but it will be fun to choose.

Patriot Guard hats

I wanted some hats to coordinate with my Patriot Guard Riders scarf, so I knitted one on a loom (left), then crocheted one using Britta Graham's Flower Power Hat pattern.


Here's a photo of the Patriot Guard Riders scarf I knitted last year:
