The ribbing for the neckpiece is both fashionable and functional. 

And can be worked over the face and nose or tucked down into a turtleneck.

The Neck is extremely warm and cozy in this hooded cowl Because you have used 2 strands of double-knit yarn it makes a super bulky hooded cowl.

 I honestly LOVE this crochet hooded cowl. 

I think it's the most favorite piece of wearable crochet 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 had changed dramatically and it had to have a hood, which could go up or down.
It is so bitterly cold here in the North of Scotland,, with a strong cold northerly wind. 

I can confirm the hooded cowl IS as Warm and cozy as I knew it would be.

What I used to crochet the hooded cowl:

I  had some gorgeous soft Grey double-knit yarn (600g) 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.

Ribbing is made first then the Double crochet rows are added to the top of the ribbing. 

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

The last cowl I made for my daughter was super bulky and really cozy, made with chunky blanket yarn.

 I had actually considered adding a hood onto it.

I LOVE my turtle necks in the winter so decided to go with a more textured crochet ribbed stitch to make an even warmer 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.

NOTE: this chain must easily fit over your head, to be able to get it on and off.
