    Could you tell me what size this is for please?

      It is sized for adults. To make for a child, you would leave off a few inches from the half double crochet rectangle and a few inches off the cowl collar.

    This looks amazing! How much carrot coloured yarn do I need to buy? Is one ball enough, or do I need two?


    • Sarah
      September 9, 2015 at 3:11 pm

      I used exactly one ball with about a foot leftover. There was definitely nothing left to spare! I would recommend buying two balls just in case your gauge is different or you’d like to add a few rows to the neck.

      One strand. Thanks for asking!

    I started with a 12″ chain but it has turned into closer to 15″. Is that a problem?

    Also, when you say opposite of the seam do you just mean the ‘front’ of the hood?


    • Sarah
      November 23, 2015 at 4:30 am

      Gauge does not have to be exact for this project. If your piece is closer to 15″, you can make a slightly thicker seam at the top and shorten the rounds of the cowl to accommodate. Also, the seam will end up on top of your head when the hood is finished, so that should help you find where to pick up stitches to make your cowl.

    Hi Sarah,

    Great post! My mother-in-law wants to make this but her English is not so good and I’m not knowledgeable with knitting to explain the instructions above to her. Do you by any chance have a visual pattern?

    I promise to show you the finished product 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Thank in advance!

    Are there any pictures or a video tutorial to go with this by any chance? I’m a visual learner and this is one of the first written patterns I’ve tried and I’m confused by some of the terms and directions.

    Hello have a really stupid question? I got to the part where you sew the seam how do you go from that part to having the bottom part this is very confusing, what I see is the hood but I am stuck. Many thanks

    • Sarah
      December 15, 2015 at 4:31 am

      Once you finish sewing the top seam of the hood, you’ll join the yarn to the bottom edge.

      • Donna E Schultz
        December 23, 2015 at 2:06 am

        But it is not large around the face do you have to do any increases, very small and do you double the yarn, I am doing something wrong here. Does not look like picture at all.

        • Sarah
          December 28, 2015 at 2:04 am

          If you have completed the orange part of the hood and is not long enough around sides of face, you can add extra rows where needed to make it the right size.

    I have been having some issues in making this. I think I figured the hood, however am stuck on the cowel part. It does t seem to be big’s very small, and skinny.

    • Sarah
      January 4, 2016 at 1:10 am

      You may need to pick up additional stitches around the bottom so that it fits comfortably.

      • Trisha
        January 4, 2016 at 1:16 am

        It seems that the cowel that I had going on was in a small area. I cannot make sense of how it goes all the way around I guess

  • Trisha

    Okay sorry to continue with the questions. However, how do I go about “overlapping by 3 stitches”? I believe that is where I am getting lost

    • Sarah
      January 5, 2016 at 2:38 am

      When the hood piece is finished and you begin picking up stitches along the bottom edge for the cowl, you can overlap the corners of your hood to give a more polished look. It is not essential and you can just work a complete circle around the bottom edge.

    I’m not sure I did this right. Basically I have a long tube that will have the ears on one end. Is that what it’s supposed to look like?

    • Sarah
      February 28, 2016 at 9:54 pm

      I think when you seamed it, you may have left the opening on top instead of on the side. The seam should lay on the top of the head.

      • Nikki
        February 28, 2016 at 11:31 pm

        This is what I have:

        • Sarah
          February 29, 2016 at 6:15 am

          Yes, I’m afraid that you’ll have to undo the bottom, and take it back to the step where you seamed the rectangle together. The seam should be at the top, not the side. With the seam at the top, you then have to join the bottom edge to work in the round, still leaving a hole for the face.

          • Nikki
            February 29, 2016 at 12:11 pm

    I dont understand how to do the brown trim. Its not explained well. And is the brown down bottom knitted in the picture?

    • Sarah
      May 3, 2016 at 7:52 am

      Yes, the pattern was adapted from a hood that uses both knit and crochet. For the trim in the picture, I picked up the stitches with knitting needles and worked in seed stitch, then rolled the trim back and sewed it down. To adapt it to crochet, you can simply single crochet around the opening. If the hood is then too deep, you can fold the trim back and sew it or leave it as is.

    Hi! Im a novice with crochet and I am itching to try this pattern! could you send me the whole thing? Also for step 3 of the hood could you clarify a little? Im not that proficient with readying patterns just yet aha

    • Sarah
      May 3, 2016 at 10:21 pm

      For a crochet novice, I would stick to the pattern listed and not attempt the knit and crochet combo. For reference, I’ve included it below. In step 3, you would simply single crochet around the bottom edge to form a circle, then work in the round. If you would like to overlap the edges, just overlap the edges, but insert your hook through both layers so that you single crochet through both at the same time. However, the overlap is optional and I would just single crochet in a complete circle to keep it simple. Thank you so much for asking!

      For the full knit and crochet pattern, you would pick up stitches with knitting needles and work in seed stitch around front of hood for trim. For the cowl, you would pick up stitches again, then work the appropriate colored stripes in orange and seed stitch, then brown and stockinette stitch, then orange and seed stitch again.
