Crochet TurtleNeck Hooded Cowl akaThe Coodie

 Free written Crochet Pattern for the Crochet Hooded Turtleneck Cowl which I have named

  'The Coodie'. This crochet hooded cowl is so cozy and warm. 

Crochet TurtleNeck Hooded Cowl -crochet pattern free hooded cowl

The ribbed crochet stitch for the neckpiece is both fashionable and functional as it is so easy to wear up or turn down.  

I honestly LOVE this crochet hooded cowl. 

I think it's the most favorite piece of the item

 I've made to date. 


I was asked if I could make something that would incorporate a turtleneck cowl with a Hood.

They wanted something they could easily fold up and down to cover their face and nose. 

The weather has changed dramatically and it had to have a hood, which could go up or down.

 It's bitterly cold here in the North of Scotland.

I had been unwell but hope to get out and about and get some lovely pictures of me wearing my Hooded cowl.  

Well I finally got better and got out and about to see the Horses.

 And I can Confirm the hooded cowl IS as Warm and cosy as I knew it would be. 

 I used a 400g Ball of Yarn to take the pictures just now for you as I was so excited to get the 

pattern to you all. 

I had some gorgeous soft Grey double knit yarn I was desperate to use. 

I decided on a lovely textured rib stitch working into the Front and Back posts for the Turndown Turtle Neck and just plain Double crochet stitches for the Hooded part. 

So for this Coodie, I have used 2 strands of King Cole Double Knit held together. 

The last cowl I made for my daughter was really cozy, and I considered adding a hood onto it, 

But I LOVE my turtle necks in the winter so decided to go with a ribbed stitch.

The Turtle neck is made first and would make an awesome warm cozy cowl just on its own. 

To join the hood we will turn the ribbing inside out and work the double crochet.  

Sound complicated - No not at all this is a VERY easy crochet pattern, and suitable for beginners

Trust me it works out once all is finished. 

For this Coodie I started with chain 70, 

but you may need more or less if you need it bigger. 

(this chain must easily fit over your head 

to be able to get it on and off. 

Front Post Double Crochet, = FPdc

Back Post-Double Crochet -- BPdc

The pattern is written US Terms

6.00mm hook 

2 Strands of Double Knit Yarn ( I used King Cole)

  I used nearly 600g of This yarn. 

As always please reach out to me if you need me and  I would love to see your finished items
