This Way That A Way Hooded Cowl

This Way That A Way Hooded Cowl is a quick and easy project using a skein of variegated yarn.  You can use any worsted weight yarn but variegated works the best for giving each hooded cowl and different design.  This designed was created during the craze of pooling that was popping up on my Facebook feed.  If you don’t know exactly what pooling is click here and you will find plenty of information and links that explains it from The Crochet Crowd.

This was made to be worn either as a cowl or as a hooded cowl, the choice is up to you.  It was snug enough to be worn comfortably around your neck.  If snug is not your thing you can easily adjust your starting chains.  This way it’s a cowl.

Supplies:

Red Heart Super Saver – Zebra or any worsted weight yarn

“L” Hook/8mm

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

Abbreviations: 

ch – chain

dc – double crochet

st – stitch

sk – skip                               

Notes: 

Ch 4 counts as dc and ch1 throughout pattern

Turn at the end of each round

Multiples of 2

Instructions:

Round 1:  Ch 100, join with slip stitch to form a ring, be careful and not twist chain.

Round 2:  Ch 4 (counts as dc and ch1), dc in next st, *ch1, sk next st, dc in next st, repeat from * around, join in dc in 3rd ch of turning ch, turn.

Round 3:  Ch4, *dc in next dc, ch1, repeat from * around, join in dc in 3rd ch of turning ch, turn.

Round 4 – 32:  Repeat Round 3 until the desired length.

I used the entire skein of yarn because I like a snug fit cowl around my neck and it was enough to cover my head like a hood.  To make a shorter or longer hooded cowl increase or decrease rounds.  To make a larger or smaller hooded cowl increase or decrease your starting chains.

This way it’s a hooded cowl.

Try this hooded cowl with the new Caron Cakes and Sweet Roll yarn and see what you can come up with.

This one was made with Sweet Roll in Wild Cherry Swirl.  I just love the names of these colors.  Makes me so hungry.

I got a little carried away with the graphics and wanted something different.  My model was such a sport when I showed her surrounded by wolves.  This picture got me a few more orders also.  I made this hooded cowl with Homespun yarn by Lionbrand and I made 80 chains instead of 100 since it was bulky yarn and I still wanted a snug fit.  As you can see you can use any type of yarn with a slight modification of your starting chains and a larger hook if necessary.

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
