Crochet TURTLE NECK HOODIE Construction

TURTLE NECK HOODIES are my favorite kinds of HOODED COWLS to make because they work up quickly and they are absolutely beautiful in every color. It looks like it could be complicated, but it’s really simple and never disappoints.

In fact, this TURTLE NECK HOODIE works up so quickly that I bet you could have one of these finished within a few hours. Yes, even if you’re a beginner!

The main body of this HOODIE is created from a RECTANGLE with A HOOD. 

So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this amazing TURTLE NECK HOODIE.



When trying to decide on a yarn for this hoodie I knew I wanted something warm and soft. I chose ALIZE SUPERLANA YARN.

For this S/M size you will need:
YARN: ALIZE SUPERLANA, 100g, 570m, 75% acrylic, 25% cotton 
1 - 1,5 ball

For this pattern you will need 5.0 crochet hook.

Size: M / S size - this can easily be adapted to a smaller size or bigger size just by reducing or increasing the number of rows.



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 adult woman S/M size, 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


4) There are 2 parts of this project:
A)        NeckWarmer 
B)        Hood

This pattern 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.

There are 2 parts = 2 rectangles: 


This Hoodies is made of 2 panels (crocheted as a one part) – one is for the neckwarmer and one is for the hood.

PART A) NECKWARMER / TURTLE NECK - this is a rectangle
PART B) HOOD - this is a rectangle as well, we add the hood on this NECKWARMER rectangle.

5) NECKWARMER'S rounds start with CH 3 = 1 DC

6) NECKWARMER is worked in joining rounds with right side facing at all times

7) Joining rounds - part A is worked in joining rounds, which means that you will be joining the last stitch of the round to the first one with a slip stitch and than chaining 3 before continuing with the next round. 

8) The direction shown are for S/M size but can be easily converted into bigger size or smaller size – just add more or less rows.


Level: Easy - for beginners

Abbreviations (US Crochet Terms):
SP - space
SlSt – slip stitch

CH/s – chain/s
HDC - half double crochet
DC - 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
BLO - back loop only


Special stitches used: hdc in back loop only - the back loop is hidden under the front 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


Crochet Hook 5.50 mm


Pick up the 5mm hook and let’s make a foundation chain loosely. 
Chain 64 chains, join the chain with a slip stitch.
Work in closed joined rounds

Foundation Chain Measurement: 45 cm / 18 inch 


R1: ch3 (1dc), 1dc in each and every st around till end of row, sl st in 3rd ch from beg to close round (64 dc)

R2: ch3 (1dc), *1fpdc in next st, 1bpdc in next st* repeat from *to* around till end of row, sl st in 3rd ch from beg to close round (64 dc)

R3 – R27 repeat R2

You will have 64 stitches in each round.


Repeat R3 till you are satisfied with the length of your Turtle Neck Warmer

R28: slip stitch in each st around, invisible join

Fasten off your work and hide all loose tails.

The TURTLE NECK WARMER is 21 cm / 8.3 inch long.


Still use the 5mm crochet hook.
Let’s make a slip knot, join your work, start at any st of R1 of part A.


R1: ch1 (don’t count it as a st), 2hdc in first st BLO, *1hdc in next 9st BLO, 2hdc in next st BLO* repeat from *to* around till end of row, 2 hdc in last st BLO, turn (70 hdc)

R2: ch1 (don’t count it as a st), 2hdc in first st BLO, *1hdc in next 19st BLO, 2hdc in next st BLO* repeat from *to* around till end of row, 2 hdc in last st BLO, turn (75 hdc)

R3: ch1 (don’t count it as a st), 2hdc in first st BLO, *1hdc in each st across BLO* repeat from *to* around till end of row, 2 hdc in last st BLO, turn (77 hdc)

R4 – R8: repeat R3

R9 – R24: ch1, 1hdc in each and every st across till end of row BLO, turn (87 hdc)

Fasten off your work and hide all loose tails.



Hoodie Border

R1: ch1, 1hdc in each and every st around the hood, invisible join

Fasten off your work and hide all loose tails.


Join your Hood:
Directions: Fold the HOOD in half, place the beg to the end, work on wrong side facing you, use tapestry needle and join stitch to stitch.
Fasten off your work and hide all loose tails.

Cut the yarn. Then fasten off and wave in all ends.
You are all done with your amazing TURTLE NECK HOODIE
