Whoody - a hood to crochet

It's been a a cold and snowy winter here this year. I am so wishing that spring would finally arrive and warm us up. Even today our temps are in the low 30s with snow. Average temp should be 50 degrees by now.

Here's a hood for the crocheters. It is made in the round using different height stitches to create the shape. The ending and beginning edge feature a shell stitch border.

Below is a picture of what it looks like laid out flat. When you slip it over your head and put the narrow part under your chin, it fits just right.

Keeps the cold air off your neck and out of your ears. :-)

My hood is 29" around, 8.5" at the wide at the chin and 17" wide in the hood part.

I used a skein of Hobby Lobby's Baby Bee Sweet Delight Flower Print in Pikalicious and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook. That's about 288 yards of a DK weight if you want to substitute something else.

Size is easy to adjust by beginning with more/less stitches and working more/less rows.

The 2 page pattern has written instructions. It's so simple you don't need a chart.

The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store. Have fun!
