FREE Winter Trees Hooded Cowl CAL; Part 2

This is our halfway point! That seems like a laughable statement since we just started last week. I’ve never done such a short CAL!

Part 1 was the first half of the hood. In part 2 we will finish the hood. Part 3 adds the cowl neck on.

If you’re just hearing about this project, you’ll want to return to the Introduction page, or maybe Part 1. The schedule and links to each section are just below.


Follow this pattern for FREE here on my website!

I will have both the interlocking crochet pattern AND the overlay mosaic crochet pattern for this square here online. Charts are not included, only the written portion. Charts are available in the purchased pattern.

For the duration of the CAL, you’ll get an automatic 40% discount. on the purchase of “Winter Trees Hooded Cowl“. Regular price applies on November 10, 2022.

Or, you can forever view both the interlocking pattern and the mosaic pattern here on my website!

I strongly suggest adding the revised SC Border now, but you may choose to use the simple SC Border or add no border at all.

SC Border

Chain 1, put 2 sc in each gap on all four sides. Add an extra chain 2 space in each corner (corner gap will have 2sc, 2ch, 2sc).

Revised SC border

Chain 1, put 1 sc in the MC gap, and then the second sc should pick up one loop of the AC as well as going through the MC gap. Do this in each gap on all four sides. Add an extra chain 2 on the corners.

Creating the Hood

Fold this rectangle in half and, using a whip stitch, sew the top together.

That’s it for now!

The cowl addition will be published in section 3 on November 7, 2022.

Trim the fringe, if needed.

Creating the Hood

Fold this rectangle in half and, using a whip stitch, sew the top together.

Hood has been sewn at the top bu there’s still work to do!

Time to add an envelope border

I suggest you use a single crochet stitch for this project. My YouTube tutorial shows double crochet stitches worked in a square around a blanket (https://youtu.be/P-uXHjwTFeE). This project is slightly differnt.

This video shows how I do an envelope border around one end of a project: https://youtu.be/VGah43YCxAw

I did 7 rounds of single crochet after my initial surface crochet round. You may prefer a wider brim – it’s all up to you!

That’s it for now!
