Crochet Hooded Cowl

Where we now live it’s cold. So cold that the caps and gloves were the first things to be operational after the moving. But Sofia had just one and we tend to be quite messy and leave things a little everywhere: at grandparents, on backpacks at school, things that stay in my car, things that stay in father’s car… and with the pretext of having more space my mother (and later my mother in law) decided to presented me with their wool remains.

So I decided to make a hooded cowl for Sofia. I searched a few patterns on the internet but I thought I could pull this one on my own!

The hair pins are complements. They were in her hair before!

I used a chunk wool with a 8mm hook and worked on single stiches.

This hooded cowl is really easy to make. You can change the crochet stitch but the more closed is the stitche the hottest the cowl will be! Start by making a rectangle where the larger side is the width around the shoulders and the small side is the height from the shoulders to the head.

When your piece has the right size, fold in half. The seamless part it’s the back part.

Now just sew one of the tops and sew a bit of the front for the neck. You can also make one or two careers around the face opening, to accentuate and fasten off.

And it is this simple!
