Toddler Size Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern

After searching and searching for a simple, free hooded cowl crochet pattern and not being able to find one I liked, I decided to just do it myself. Here is what I came up with. It's very simple. Can be adjusted by doing a longer chain or adding more rows. I made 2, one with less rows to fit a little more snug (12 rows for the hood) and one with more rows to be looser (20 rows for the hood). This is a quick work up, it took a couple hours total to make and used less than 1 skein of Vanna's Choice (3.5oz, 170 yard). My 2yo won't model for me, so I had to improvise. Hopefully this pattern is easy to understand. Feel free to leave questions or concerns in the comments.

Hooded Cowl
Toddler Size

Yarn: Vanna's Choice
Hook: J/5.75 or 6mm

Any yarn will work. You can adjust the size by changing the hook size. 

Ch 60. Join, making sure your chain isn't twisted. * Add more chains here for a longer cowl *
Row 1- ch 1. DC around. Join in the top of 1st DC. (60dc)
Row 2-7- Repeat Row 1. (60dc)
*Add more rows here for a wider cowl.
Fasten off at the end of row 7.

Count 20 stitches on each side of where you fastened off and mark with stitch markers.
Join your yarn in the first stitch you marked on the right side.

Row 1- ch 1. DC across until you get to your 2nd marked stitch. ch 1. Turn. (40 dc)
Row 2-12- DC across. ch 1. Turn. (40 dc)
*Add more rows here for a looser hood

Turn inside out. Fold top of the hood in half and slip stitch through both sides across to join.
I work a 2nd row of slip stitch back across so I can make my edge without fastening off and rejoining. If you don't want to do an edge or prefer to fasten off and rejoin, you don't have to do the 2nd row of sl st.

Edge- Work sc evenly around the opening. I worked 2 rows. You can do however many you'd like.

** Alternate Hood ** If you prefer you can simply not fasten off when you finish your cowl and work the Hood part from there. However I prefer the seam to be in the back, hence why I fasten off. If that doesn't bother you, you do not have to fasten off and rejoin, you can just keep working from where your yarn already is.
