Make It Your Own

As with most crochet patterns, small changes can be made to the hooded cowl to reflect your personality. The following are a few ideas for inspiration.

  • Two strands of worsted weight yarn were used to crochet the hooded cowl, but a bulky weight yarn with a matching gauge can be substituted.
  • Using a different color for each yarn strand will give your stitches a tweed look. The example was done with white and gray strands. Experiment with colors to get your ideal combination.
  • The button used is for decorative purposes only. A bigger or smaller button can be used.
  • Other embellishment ideas could be a corsage pin, two or three buttons sewn vertically down the front, or a drawstring woven around the face opening of the hood and tied at the neck.

Scrap-Busting Gift

After working on a variety of crochet projects, a basket of leftover yarn balls is inevitable. This hooded cowl pattern is perfect for using up the scraps. Choose one main color for one strand to use throughout, but a variety of colors for the second strand. The finished project will definitely be one-of-a-kind.
