MAKING THE HOOD

 

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 2 - SMALL

Place a stitch marker here if you like. Including the stitch your holding as 1, count over 15 stitches total. Place marker. Then not counting the middle stitch, count over 15 to the left. Place a marker here. You should have 30 sts from marker to marker. This will be the opening part of the hood.

Using the line on the back, try to straighten it in the middle as much as you can and then find the middle stitch on the front side.

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 4 - SMALL

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 3 - SMALL

Row 1 of Hood
Grab your yarn again and flip your work where your facing the front of the cowl. Attach your yarn to the left marker.

Riptide Hodded Cowl 5 - SMALL

 

 

DC until your next marker. Ch 2 and turn.

 

Row 2 of Hood

We will be doing FPDC’s this row. FPDC onto the post of the ch 2, and then FPDC onto all post of this row. When you reach then end, ch 2 and turn.

 

Row 3
Since the ch 2 counts as a stitch, dc into the second stitch and in rest of sts. IMPORTANT to not dc into last dc of row or you will be adding a stitch. Because the ch 2 and the FPDC from last row are counted as 1 st. So ignore the ch 2 at the end of a DC row, just dc in last st and Ch 2 and turn.

 

Row 4
FPDC onto the post of the ch 2, and then FPDC onto all post of this row. When you reach then end, ch 2 and turn.

 

Rows 5 – 18 (14 rounds – 18 rounds total)

Repeat rows 3 & 4. Row 18 should be a FPDC row. It’s important to end on a FPDC and not a DC row. The pictures below first show you the FRONT then the BACK.

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 8 - SMALL

Riptide Hodded Cowl 7 - SMALL

 

The last row worked, you want to fold that row in half, where last stitch of row touches the first st of the row. Fold it where the good side / right side / textured side is on the inside like shown below.

Riptide Hodded Cowl 10 - SMALL

 

 

Then sl stitch, loosely, don’t pull the stitches tight, you want your sts to remain even and flat as much as you can.

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 11 - SMALL

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 12 - SMALL

When your reach the last stitch, ch 1 and cut your yarn, work in end.

Now you can see your hood formed!

 

Riptide Hooded Cowl 14 - SMALL

 

Now find the first row of your hood on both side and place a marker

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 15 - SMALL

 

Attach your yarn again and working in the side stitches, you want to put one sc on the post of the dc’s along the side

 

Riptide Hodded Cowl 16 - SMALL

 

When you come up to a dc & ch 2 spot, treat it as one post and sc over them both together. When you reach the end, ch 1 and turn.

Now we will be doing a puff stitch. Which is YO, insert hook into stitch, repeat 2 more times, 7 loops on hook. Pull through all 7 loops and ch 1. sc into next stitch. Repeat until end of row.

Riptide Hodded Cowl 17 - SMALL

 

 And this is it.

I hope You Enjoy your New Riptide Hooded Cowl

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them on YouTube. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
