The Trickster Hood is a fantastical fae accessory with a long point, deep hood, and a ton of possibilities! This bad boy comes in Large and Small sizes and can be trimmed with any novelty yarn or just 30-50 yards of handspun art yarn!

The hood is worked flat in Tunisian crochet and then seamed up the bottom side. The main body uses a mix of worsted weight yarns with blended color changes and the trim alternates bulky yarn with novelty or art yarns. The front of the bonnet-style hood is fastened with a button so you can wear it up around the face or down on the shoulders.

Don’t know Tunisian crochet? This pattern comes with the Tunisian Primer as a bonus PDF file, with all the basics of Tunisian techniques that you will need to work this pattern. The pattern itself includes photo-tutorials on color changing, construction, and stitching with art yarn.
