A Hooded Cowl Makes a Great Gift

It’s never too early to start thinking about gifts, especially if you’re like me and like to make them yourself! Handmade gifts are always special because they are made with love.

Of course, anything handmade takes time! So I’m always on the lookout for things I can get started on for the next birthday, Mother’s Day, or Christmas gift.

Not to mention making things just for fun for myself and my family and friends. The hooded cowl crochet pattern by The Velvet Acorn is one of those patterns I ran across that just yelled at me to be made ASAP!

I started off by choosing a super bulky yarn in light purple because my four-year-old loves purple. I used a size N crochet hook, but the size hook you choose should depend on your tension.

Then I got to work. This pattern worked up quickly and the little touch of the optional “bear ears” were just perfect for my little snuggle-bug. Not only is her hooded cowl warm and cozy, it’s also fun and quirky. Makes mommy and kiddo both happy!

This pattern for a crochet hooded cowl is perfect for any age or gender. You can use any color you like, just choose a soft and bulky yarn.

I will definitely be making more of these. The adult ones I will leave the ears off except for a certain teenage girl I know that will love the ears the most.

Because they are so warm, they will also make great gifts for the men in my family for those cold football games coming up this fall. They will be just perfect worked up in their teams colors too!
