The Facets Crochet Hooded Cowl is worked in one large rectangular piece and sewn together to create the shape. It can be worn as a hood for extra warmth but also down on the neck as a standard cowl. Facets yarn by Loops and Threads is a dream to work with and really makes this design incredible. It is 100% acrylic yarn so no need to worry about allergies!
This crochet hooded cowl uses a very great entry-level cabling stitch called the winged cable. You may follow along with the written instructions below or if you are more of a visual learner, you may want to check out my stitch tutorial here:
This tutorial covers the basics of the stitch, not the entire cowl.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining chain. Ch 3 (counts as dc) and turn.
Row 2 (right side): Dc in next stitch. *skip next 2 sc, tr in next stitch. Working behind tc, dc in each of the 2 skipped stitches. Dc in next stitch. Skip one stitch, dc in each of the next two stitches. Working in front of the last two dc, tc in skipped stitch. Dc in next stitch. Repeat from * across. At the end of the row, dc in last stitch. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 3 (wrong side): Sc in each stitch, sc in top turning chain at end of row. Ch 3 and turn.
Rep rows 2 and 3 until your project measures approximately 37″ long, ending on a 3rd row. Do not fasten off. You will go through 3 full skeins of facets yarn and about half of your fourth.
Your hooded cowl will look like this once assembled.
Fold your piece in half lengthwise with right side facing outward. Sc the two ends together, working in both loops of the stitches, for only 26 stitches. This section is demonstrated in the bottom half portion in the photo above.
Make a lengthwise fold and sc all four layers together for the remainder of the length (should be around 10 stitches). This section is demonstrated in the top half portion of the photo above.
Fasten off and weave in your ends. Release the lengthwise fold in the previous section at the top of the hooded cowl, so the fold is only about an inch long.
