Surprise Twist Hooded Cowl
Sometimes the winter cold is so biting that you want more than just a hat, more than just a cowl- Enter, the hooded cowl.
This cowl starts off with a side to side ribbing that you customize to your exact measurements. Then, fold it in half and add to the fun by creating a cable twist on the back while you simultaneously seam it closed. A fun edging of faux fur can be added around the face of the hood for further interest and personalization.
Yarn: Pattern sample uses good ole Red Heart Super Saver. But use your favorite #4/aran/worsted weight yarn. You’ll need about 200-300 yds for the hood. For the faux fur trim you’ll need about 100 yds of your favorite bulky yarn.
Materials: I/5.5mm hook for the main body of the hooded cowl. K/6.5mm hook for the faux fur trim.
scissors, stitch markers, blunt tip needle for weaving in ends, buttons for closure 1” in diameter.
