The Crochet Hood and Combination called Crohoodies, designed by our official tester, Nancy Elliott is a fabulous gift idea.

There was a request from crocheters to change the Crochet Toodie to not have a pointed back part of the hood and round it off.

Nancy took on the challenge and used her own thoughts to work into a Crochet Hoodie Cowl Concept.

I used approximately 300 g of yarn to make this Crochoodie.  This pattern is completely adjustable without any specific gauge to match.  If you crochet on the tighter side, you’ll need a bit more yarn, if you crochet on the looser side, you can probably get away with less.

  • Fits the average adult. 
  • Size U.S. J/10 (6.0 mm) crochet hook (for hood portion)
  • Size U.S. H/8 (5.0 mm) crochet hook (for neck portion)

Instructions

Hood Portion – 6 mm / J Hook

1st rnd: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with sl st to first dc. (12 sts)

2nd rnd: Ch 2 (does not count as st). 2 dc in each dc around. Join with sl st to first dc. (24 sts)

3rd rnd: Sl st around first dc post.  Ch 3. 1 dcfp around same post as last sl st. 1 dcbp around next dc. *2 dcfp around next dc. 1 dcbp around next dc. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. (36 sts)

4th rnd: Sl st around first dcfp. Ch 3. 1 dcfp around next dcfp. 2 dcbp around next dcbp. *1 dcfp around each of next 2 dcfp. 2 dcbp around next dcbp. Rep from * around. Join with sl st top of ch 3. (48 sts)

5th rnd: Sl  st around first dcfp. Ch 3. 1 dcfp around same post as last sl st. 1 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcbp around each of next 2 dcbp. *2 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcbp around each of next 2 dcbp. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. (60 sts)

6th rnd: Sl st around first dcfp. Ch 3. 2 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcbp around each of next 2  dcbp. *1 dcfp around next dcfp. 2 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 dcbp around each of next 2 dcbp. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to top of ch 3. (72 sts)

7th rnd: Ch 1. 2 sc in same sp as sl st. 1 sc in each of next 5 sts. *2 sc in next st. 1 sc in each of next 5 sts. Rep from * around. Join with sl st to first sc. Do not fasten off. (84 sts)

In order to get a “rounded, rather than pointed” hood we will need to transition the circle into rows to form the top and sides of the hood.  

Count 72 sts around and PM around that st before continuing.  Also PM into the top of each ch2 at each end (and move them up each row as you proceed)

1st row: RS. Ch2. Alternate between fpdc and bpdc into each st across, placing last bpdc around the 72nd st. Turn (72 sts)

2nd row: WS. Ch2, alt bpdc and fpdc across, hdc into ch2. Turn (73 sts)

3rd row: RS. Ch2, alt fpdc/bpdc to end, hdc into ch2. Turn (73 sts)

4th row: WS. Ch2, alt bpdc/fpdc to end, hdc into ch2. Turn (73 sts)

Note: I made my hood so it’s a little longer in the front.  If you want a shorter (closer to your head) front you can omit Rows 11-17, or customize to your liking by trying it on after completing Row 10. Alternately, you can also lengthen it by adding more rows by repeating rows 3 and 4 as needed.  Do not fasten off at the end of the last row, we will transition into the cowl/mask piece.

Continue in pattern as follows:

Rows 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15 and 17 – repeat row 3.

Rows 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 – repeat row 4 .

Change to 5mm hook. We will now be transitioning into the cowl/mask portion of the pattern and for the first row you will be working your sts into the ch2 spaces from the rnds above sideways. 

Note: If you’ve added/subtracted rows in hood portion you will need to adjust the number of sts you will work along the neck edges accordingly.  Make sure you sc and “uneven” number of sts. (e.g.: 67,69,71,73, 77, 79, 81 etc.)

1st rnd: Ch 1, and continue into neck edge (see pic) doing 2sc into each ch2 space along the first neck edge, 1sc into each st along the back edge and 2sc into the other side’s neck edge, join to sc on other side of edge. Turn (75 sts)

2nd rnd: WS. Ch1, 1sc into each st across, join with a sl st to first sc. Turn (75 sts) 

3rd rnd: RS. Ch2 (does not count as a st) 1dc blo (this rnd only) into each sc around, join with sl st to first dc. (75 sts)

4th rnd: Ch2, fpdc into first dc of rnd 3, bpdc into next dc. *Fpdc into next st, bpdc into next st. Rep from * around, ending with a fpdc, join with sl st to first fpdc. (75 sts) 

Note: The ch2 will “act as a bpdc and fill in any potential “hole” between the first st and last st.

5th rnd: Rep rnd 4 until cowl/neck portion measures 8” (or desired length based on any customization).

6th rnd: Ch1, 1sc in each st around, join with sl st to first sc. Fasten off, weave in end.

Note: You will always have the same amount of sts (75) or whichever number you customized your pattern too throughout the rest of cowl/neck portion.

    Hi Mikey,

    When starting the cowl/mask portion, round 1 says to do 2sc in each chain 2 space at the ends of the rows, what about the back of the head bottom, do you put 2sc in those stitches as well? Not sure how to end up with an uneven number of stitches if you’re putting 2sc in each space? idk, am I not reading it correctly?

    • Nancy

      Hi Terri, My apologies for that round not being clearer. You will put 2sc into each ch2 space along the first side, then continue along the back edge with sc then up the other side with 2sc into each st. You can put 2sc into the back sts as well if you need, to get to the “uneven” number of sts.

    Hi Mikey,
    Think there is a glitch on row 7 of the cowl pattern. It tells you to do 2scs in the join st. Then it omits the number of sts.to do before you do another 2scs in the stitch following the number of stitches after the first 2scs. I have been putting 5 scs in between them seems to work out ok.

      Thank you. It’s been corrected thanks for your heads up so we did a second look at it.
