This is exactly what I need for this cold months ahead. I will try using a chunky yarn and hope it looks as amazing as this one does.

This cowl looks gorgeous and I would like to crochet it, I don't want to make it in alpaca can any one suggest what weight yarn I can use please. Many thanks

What is the number of stitches you should have at the end of each row throughout this pattern? HughesmRthal 93

I just have a question. Can you start out with the fsc?

I haven't done any needle work in years, but I plan to try something this winter. The cowl looked like something I would like to start on.

Hi Mompayz--Thanks for the comment! Let us know how your crafty adventure goes! --FaveCrafts Editors

Have made 7 of these using wool-eze and they turned out beautiful! I also made 2 out of left over red heart yarn, using two strands. When using alpaca (be careful it sheds-alot!) I didn't work up as many rows so it wouldn't be suffocating but lay nicely.

I love this pattern, I have made several of them in different types of yarn. Some of the thinner yarns I chained 100 to get the size needed. This is such a pretty pattern when worked up, and I love the wrong side of this as much as the right side. Judi G

I am new to crocheting and learning to read patterns. From step 3 and on, am I correct that you alternate sc the dc on each row? Connie Kicklighter

I was wondering,has anyone made the cowl with a smaller weight yarn? Like super saver 4,I have so much yarn left over and I thought about making this cowl with my extra yarn.thank ya'll fellow crafters

I am making it with Red Heart worsted weight and ended up chaining 120 to start. I draped it after three rows and it looks about right. When it's done we'll see!

Just A tip: To keep yarn clean and free of cat hair (from my Mr. Magoo), I use the large plastic coffee containers, cut a whole in the center of the lid and place the yarn inside. These are absolutely great and keep the yarn free from tangles and whatnot. Of course I soak them overnight prior to using them to make sure the coffee smell is gone (sometimes even longer if I smell even a 'hint' of coffee yet). These work very well (for me anyway). Hope it works for you too!

I made this out of baby bounce and although the pattern is easy to follow, and unique it's not very pretty. The cowl was so heavy I felt suffocated. Too much material up around the neck and face. I may try again with a slightly lighter yarn, but not soon. Too many other projects to try.

I made it for my daughter-in-law she loved it. She said everyone wanted one like it. I made it with a Bernat gray she had gotten it came out great.

What other yarn works? I too am alergic to wool also..

To: salongeway 7648334 WHat yarn did youi use to make this hooded cowl?

I got a set of 4 yarn holders, which are large platic jugs with flip top lids and a hole in the lid for yarn. One of my favorite things. I think I paid about $4 for each and they come in different sizes. I am making this pattern with Caron One Pound Acrylic (on sale for $6 at Michaels's last week). I'll let you know how it turns out.

Dsynr1 - Bernat Alpaca is made from alpaca and acrylic. Often times people who are allergic to wool from sheep, use alpaca successfully in its place. I would recommend buying a skein of Bernat Alpaca and making a small wrist cuff to wear. If it does not aggravate your allergies, it could be your safe alternative to sheep's wool. If that does not work, you can also try other types of animal based yarn fibers in the same manner. I hope you are able to broaden your world with other wonderful fibers.

I'm allergic to wool and have to use synthetic yarns. Which yarn is a proper substitute for the Bernat Alpaca?

I made this in a different yarn than what is called for and it worked up great! Will be making two more in bright orange for my friend and I who walk our dogs in areas where hunting is allowed. Love this cowl!

Where did you get your bright orange yarn? The only thing I could find was the "Syracuse Orange" school color on Amazon. So I crocheted a cap for my hubby :)

That is lovely, I want to make one now!

Just a tip. I use empty 2-3 liter soda bottles to put my yarn in to keep clean and from tangeling. Cut off the bottom above the ridge and insert yarn through the top. quiltinggma

This Hooded Cowl makes up just beautiful I made one now my daughters want one to

Looks very comforab and that it'll fit just right! It looks very lovelyk Cindy Grams
