Crochet Hooded Cowl Pattern

I just discovered that many people would like to learn how I made a crocheted cowl with a hood, so I want to share it here so anyone who wants to recreate it can give it a try.

Crochet Hooded Cowl Pattern

Materials needed:

H hook

4-ply worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver)

Yarn needle

Cowl piece:

Row 1: Chain 92, join with slip st. in first chain (do not twist chain), chain 2, DC in each chain loop around, join with slip st. in first DC. (90 sts)

Row 2-3: Chain 2, FPDC (Front-post double crochet) around first stitch, BPDC (Back-post double crochet) around next stitch. Repeat these stitches around each stitch in an alternating pattern (FP,BP,FP,BP) to the end of the row, and join with a slip st in the first DC stitch.

Row 4: Chain 2, DC in each stitch around, join with slip st.

Row 5: Chain 2, DC in next 4 sts, chain 1, skip next st, DC in next 4 sts, repeat around (this increases breathability of the piece, but can be excluded for a more solid finished piece.)

Row 6: Chain 2, DC in each stitch around, join with slip st.

Row 7-15: repeat rows 5 and 6 seven times

Row 16: Chain 2, DC in each stitch around, join with slip st.

Finish off.

Hood piece:

Row 1: Chain 84, DC in 3rd chain from hook, DC in each chain stitch, turn. (82 stitches)

Row 2-3: Chain 2, FPDC (Front-post double crochet) around first stitch, BPDC (Back-post double crochet) around next stitch. Repeat these stitches around each stitch in an alternating pattern (FP,BP,FP,BP) to the end of the row, then turn. (82 stitches)

Row 4: Chain 1, SC in each stitch, then turn. (82 stitches)

Row 5-7: Chain 2, DC in next 3 stitches, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, repeat across (20 chain 1 spaces)

Row 8-9: Chain 1, SC in each stitch and Chain 1 space, then turn. (82 stitches)

Row 10-16: Chain 2, DC in next 3 stitches, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, repeat across (20 chain 1 spaces)

Row 17-18: Chain 1, SC in each stitch, then turn.

Row 19-21: Chain 2, DC in next 3 stitches, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, repeat across (20 chain 1 spaces)

Row 22: Chain 1, SC in each stitch, then turn.

Fold hood in half, and slip stitch row 22 together (41 slip stitches), finish off.

Turn cowl and hood inside out, and sew edges together with yarn needle, leaving 10 stitches free as the opening of the hood.

This can be altered with a larger hook size and thicker yarn for a bigger size (I follow the rule of: each hook size up is one size bigger.) If there are any questions or problems with the pattern, please let me know 🙂

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.

    I would love to see a picture of the cowl. I’m going to give it a try but I’m a visual person so need to see it as I follow the pattern. 🙂
