Well she did it. My adorable, bouncing and squishy baby turned into a toddler, and I’m not even sure how. Even though it’s pretty darn hot here in Northern Utah still, the winters come swift and harsh and I want to make sure we are ready. It’s time to make my baby hooded cowl into a toddler hooded cowl!
This hooded cowl has more room that the baby cowl and will fit a toddler as well as a preschooler.

Gauge: 7 sts = 2″
This hood is worked in 2 pieces, the ribbed cowl and hood. Ch 1 does NOT count.
1. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. hdc 28. Turn. (29 sts)
2. – 44. (BLO)
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc 28. Turn. (29 sts)
Fold cowl in half, with ribs going vertically. Sl st along where the edges meet, forming a cowl. Tie off.
1. Ch 34. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc 32. Turn. (33 sts)
2. – 50. Ch 1. *Sc, dc in same st. Sk next st.* work 16 times. Sk next st. Sc in last st. (33 sts) Turn.
51. Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc 32. (33 sts). Tie off.
Fold the hood in half, touching the hdc rows together. Sl st along the top forming a hood. Turn inside-out, so the seam is on the inside.
Put the hood inside the cowl, right sides touching each other. Make sure the open edges of the hood are meeting in the front. Pin in place for easier sewing.
Using your needle and a length of yarn, sew the hood on where you have it pinned using the overcast stitch. This allows the cowl to stretch where it meets the cowl.
Once you are done stitching it together, weave in your ends and flip the ribbed cowl down.
