Crochet EASY and SOFT BLUE Hooded Cowl


This crocheted EASY and super SOFT Hooded cowl pattern is so practical and fun to make. And it is a perfect for this winter time – your head will be toasty thanks to the hood. And moreover, this is a trendy winter wear item. I really love that the hooded style on this cowl.


The great things about this new pattern are: it's super beginners friendly, quick work, only two balls and wearing with or without hood - it can be worn wherever you need some warmth.

You know me, I love to make so simple shapes and easy patterns. 

The pattern is available here below for free. It comes with a video guide as well.

So let me get to this super easy project for you.

This is my favorite pattern for kids HOODED POCKET SHAWL:

This pattern is made for beginners - only a basic skill level is required to make it. If you don't understand any of my instructions, don't worry I am here for you - enter the comments at the end of this post.


When trying to decide on a yarn for this hooded scarf, I knew I wanted something warm and very soft. I chose very very soft velvet yarn: SAMET SOFT VLNIKA
The colour choice was also easy – I picked an amazing blue colour – it looks perfect for boys! 

This crocheted Hooded Cowl is my first winter hooded garment of this new season and I’m so pleased with how it turned out! 

It’s winter time, my crochet friends – let’s grab a cup of coffee, cozy up and let’s get started to make this perfect Hooded Cowl pattern!

For this KIDS size you will need:

SAMET SOFT COLOR, 100% polyester, super soft, net weight 100g, 100m, 2 skeins

For this pattern you will need 7.00 mm crochet hook.

This Hooded Cowl is made of 2 panels (crocheted as a one part) – one is for the cowl and one is for the hood.

Size: this kids size can easily be adapted to a smaller size or bigger size just by reducing or increasing the number of chains and rows for the cowl and as well as making less or more chains for the hood.


Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for beginners

US crochet term:
SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
HDC - half double crochet
FPDC - front post double crochet
BPDC - back post double crochet

SK - skip
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP - repeat
YO – yarn over



Special stitches used: hdc in the 3rd loop only - the 3rd loop is hidden under the back loop.

Special stitches used: front post double crochet (fpdc) and front post triple crochet (fptr)

Front and back post crochet stitches are used to create wonderful texture in crochet. Instead of making your stitch through the loops at the top of the stitch, you make it around the stitch. Everything else stays the same. The most challenging things about crochet post stitches are knowing where and how to insert the hook. There are front post stitches and back post stitches.

For front post double crochet stitches (fpdc): yarn over, insert your hook from front to back then from back to front around post of stitch indicated, yarn over, pull through stitch, then finish your double crochet as normal, yarn over, pull through 2 lps, yarn over, pull through last 2 lps


Pattern Notes
1) Before you start take a measurement. Chain until you reach the measurement around the head - the neck-warmer should be easily slipped over head.
2) The direction shown are for kids size, boy 7 years old, but can be easily converted into bigger size or smaller size – just measure your starting chain around your head, if it fits snuggly then you can use this chain amount for your size.
3) A Ch 1, ch2 at beg of the row DOESN'T count as hdc throughout

There are 2 parts of this project:
A)        Cowl
B)        Hood
This pattern is for kids size, but you can easily adapt to a smaller size or bigger size just by reducing or increasing the number of ch and rows for the hood and as well as making less or more chains for the cowl.


Pick up the 5mm hook and let’s make a foundation chain lossely.
