Chunky Hooded Cowl - Crochet

Post: # 1901Post KMO Studio »

I had been searching for weeks for a hooded cowl that I could easily crochet in a day and I didn't like any of the styles available. I also didn't want to have to pay for something I could create myself...so I designed this cowl in an afternoon and it's easy enough to stitch in a day using super bulky yarn.

I used Barcelona Roving Yarn – 223 yards, 8.4 oz. Chewy Cable Wrap in Mustard color, Size 6 Super Bulky
Size J Crochet Hook, scissors, tapestry needle that fits the yarn

Copyright 2022 KMO Studio. You may sell items you make using this pattern but do not sell the pattern itself or claim it to be yours.

NOTES: Always maintain 70 stitches even if that goes against the normal methods of crochet. No matter the stitch, always start in the first stitch (that is the stitch to JOIN at the end).

When Joining, use BOTH loops! Then pay attention to what the pattern says for either using Back Loops Only or Both Loops.

This piece is written for American style crochet. Stitches and methods used: chain (ch), Back Loops Only, single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), triple crochet which is also called treble crochet (tc), join, bind off, weave in ends.

Instructions:
First Part:
Chain 4.
Row 1: In 2nd chain from hook make a single crochet and single crochet the next 2 chains. (3 SC total), turn, ch1.
Row 2: Using Back Loops Only, single crochet across (3 SC total), turn, ch1.
Continue repeating Row 2 until the piece measure about 29” (or more for a larger head). Join ends using single crochet stitches across. Make sure to look at the pattern and determine which row is best for joining together. Then after joining, ch1. Do NOT bind off.

Second Part:
Working on LONG edge around now:
Row 1: Make 70 single crochets around (or more for larger heads), join in first crochet, ch1.
Row 2: Using Back Loops Only, single crochet around starting with the single crochet where the join was made (70 sc), join, ch1.
Row 3: Using Back Loops Only, single crochet around (70 sc), join and Bind Off.

Third Part
Work on the OTHER long side of the piece now. Cast On in the same area where the seam is from previous work.
Row 1: Make 70 single crochets around (70 sc), join first single crochet, ch1.
Row 2: Using Back Loops Only, single crochet around starting with the same single crochet where the join was made from previous row (70 sc), join, ch1.

I love the look of this! Most of us are in the winter months which means it's getting very cold. We need extra layers. I have personally never had a cowl; just always used my hood. Cowls seems to be great as they can cover your head or if you need a bit more around your neck, just pull it down.

A friend of mine suggested adding a cord so it can be tightened around the face. I kind of like having it the way it is so that the wind doesn't reach my nose when I turn my head.
