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!

FREE Crochet Pattern: Toddler Hooded Cowl - Keep those sweet little necks and heads warm this winter with this adorable hooded cowl.

This hooded cowl has more room that the baby cowl and will fit a toddler as well as a preschooler.

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.

  1. I’m so confused… I’m doing the cowl part now. But it doesn’t look like the picture all. It looks like it’s just lines, yours looks like little flowers. No? Is back loop single crochet or double? Sorry, I’m new on this… Also, 30 chains are going around the face? No? Right?

  2. Oh thank you, Bethany!!
    Made this hood for my grand-babies last year and both daughters asked for these hoods the grand-toddlers this year.
    Love the finished look of this hood. And I put a skinny pom-pom on my granddaughters and it looked perfect! Again, thank you for sharing your talent with us. ♥️

  3. I want to make this for my 16 month old dggd for Christmas but want to make it with sofee chunky so I was wondering if you know that the measurement woulld be from the back of the hood to the front. I see many meaurements for around the head for a hat but don’t know how long (wide) the side of the hood should be.from back to front

  4. I have made 2 of these so far,One for my granddaughter and one for my niece.I am going to try enlarging it to make for my 10 year granddaughter.wish me luck.

  5. No where can I find how much med weight yarn I need to make the Toddler size? My 2yr old granddaughter has fallen in love with a ball of yarn I have, but not sure it is enough! Thank you for your help….

  6. I absolutely love that pattern, I have a little3yr. Old great granddaughter that will love it too. I would love to see you make one of those for an 18″ doll that would be so sweet. Thank you so much for the Cowl pattern.

  7. Can this be modified to fit an older child? Or, will there be a pattern for one? This is so cute but my girls are a bit older than toddlers.

    1. This hood fits up to preschoolers! but yes, you can easily make it larger by working more rows on the cowl, and starting with a few extra chains on the hood (making it taller).

  8. Thankyou so much for your gorgeous cowl, I’ve crocheted both this and the baby cowl and it’s just a beautiful pattern. I’m looking forward to making an adult one for me this winter in Australia. 😃

  9. I’m having a problem knowing which side to sew up. I made both parts but I sewed up the hdc side. Is that wrong. Am I supposed to sew up the shorter side? Maybe a picture would help me with how it’s supposed to look. I know the one there shows it but it’s hard to tell which side is sewn.
    Also do you have a picture of the final product that’s not on a child after its flipped over?
    I need to frog it if I have sewn up the wrong side.

      1. That sounds lovely! I crochet for charity and am so glad you shared your beautiful pattern…I love the stitch, btw.

  10. Hey,
    I was wondering if you had the measurements for this piece? Either each individual part or as a whole. I’m making it for a friend from out of town so I have no idea of a toddler size. Thanks for sharing the pattern either way! Such a cute piece.

    1. Oh dear! I am sorry I didn’t take note of the individual pieces and I don’t have a finished one on hand. This piece fits 2-4 year olds, is your friend about that age? It fit my 2 year old, as well as my 4 year old! If you achieve the gauge, yours should be the same size as mine.

  11. This is absolutely one of the most adorable crocheted items I’ve seen in a long time. It looks so cute on her. My daughter would love to wear one of those too.

    Thank you for sharing this with us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you again next week when we open our doors at 12AM EST on Friday.
