This is my newest creation to welcome Fall season: Hooded Cowl.   I am so looking forward to cooler weather and to see the beautiful Fall leaves color.

This hooded cowl is very easy and very quick to complete.  With some distractions, I finished it in half a day.

:: Pattern :: Repeat Crafter Me


Materials:
– Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn.  I used double layers of Caron Simply Soft yarn, 4 ply yarn, pumpkin color instead.
– Size I/9 crochet hook.  I used size 4.5 crochet hook
– Two large buttons
– Large Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:
Ch = Chain
HDC = Half Double Crochet

Note about pattern: This pattern is totally adjustable.  My suggestion is when making your foundation chains to measure it along your head (like a hood would fit) and then when making the extra chains for the cowl part, try it on and get a feel for how long you want it to wrap around. Continue to try it on as you go so you can adjust the number of rows you make to make it fit for you.  The oversized look is what makes this comfy and cozy.

Or feel free to follow the pattern as it is written.

Small Hooded Cowl:
Begin with the hood.
Chain 37, HDC in 3rd ch from hook and rest of way down, ch 2, turn (35 HDC)
Row 2- 13: HDC in each stitch across, ch 2 turn
Fasten off.
Fold it in half so it looks like a bonnet. Sew back together by making SC crochets along the back edges. Weave in ends and turn inside out (you wan the seam to be on the inside).

Now the cowl.
Attach yarn, chain 2 and HDC along bottom. I was able to make 42 HDC along bottom (the exact count doesn’t really matter) when you get to the end chain 20 (if I were to make again I would decrease that to 10-15).
Row 2: HDC in 3rd chain from hook and rest of way down chain.. Continue to Hdc along the edge of cowl (60 HDC), ch 2, turn
Row 3: HDC in first 57, chain 2, skip 2 stitches, Hdc in last (this creates the button hole), ch 2, turn
Row 4-5: HDC in each stitch across, ch 2, turn
Row 6: HDC in first 57, chain 2, skip 2 stitches, Hdc in last (this creates the button hole), ch 2, turn
Row 7: HDC in each stitch across, fasten off and weave in ends.
Sew buttons on.

Fold in half and sew back edge together with single crochets.
Turn inside out so your seam is hidden on the inside of the hood

Connect yarn to one end of the bottom edge and chain 2. HDC across bottom. When you get to other end chain 20.
Row 2-3: HDC in each stitch across, chain 2, turn

Row 4: HDC in each stitch across until you get to last stitches in row. Chain 2, skip 2 stitches, HDC in last two. This creates the button hole. Chain 2, turn
