I’ve been wanting to design a hooded cowl crochet pattern for quite some time and I finally took the leap when I was trying to think of the perfect gift for my mom this past Christmas. Full of interest with texture, color, and softness, this wide cowl can be worn as an infinity scarf or as a head wrap.
OH, JUST AS AN FYI, THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS, VIEW MY DISCLOSURE POLICY HERE FOR DETAILS. FAIR WARNING: IT'S LONG AND BORING, BUT IT DOES THE TRICK.
Elegant enough for evening, but comfy and warm enough for everyday, this hooded cowl is called Sweet Harmony because of the soothing touch and delightful design of this self-striping yarn from Lion Brand.
You can use your favorite self-striping yarn to make this beauty or go for a more subtle charm with a soft solid. It’s all up to you!
Are you ready to make your own?
