Hoodie Cowl ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Hoodie Cowl
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Just one skein of Lion Brand Scarfie is all you need to make this stunning Hoodie Cowl. Stitches of varying heights are used to create the hood shape, with a post stitch cable pattern in the back. If you are not familiar with post stitch cables, take a look at this tutorial before getting started so that you have a better idea of how they work. Wear the Hoodie Cowl as a hood or a cowl; either way, you will turn heads.

    I really enjoy working this pattern. For my first one I did the chain 84 then round 1. For my second one I wanted to do the foundation chain as I think it gives a beautiful finished look. I needed to add 12 fdc for round 2 to work. Thanks for the pattern

    When you skip and go back to 2 skipped stitches, what order do you work them? 1st then 2nd skipped or 2nd skipped then 1st skipped?

      1st and then 2nd, so you work 3, 4, 1, 2

    Row five when you skip 2 then do 2 ftbs in the skip then the next direction says do 2 bpts in next skipped…….but there aren’t any more skipped. Un less I do them in the back of the 2 I filled. Help!

      It says in the next 2 unworked sts, NOT skipped sts, totally different.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to make this beautiful cowl a hooded scarf instead? Thanks!

      Work in rows instead of rounds, breaking it at the center front, then add a scarf to it.

      That can happen when working in the round. You should be able to straighten it out when you block it.
