Hooded Cowl with Fingerless Gloves

When I got my hands on this Honey Glazed colour of Caron Big Cakes, I knew I wanted to make something cool for myself.  Make yours too with the free crochet patterns in this post!

Inspiration

I live in Canada.  We have winter.  It’s cold.  But I’m always warm, even when my coworkers are freezing!  Big bulky hats and scarves tend to overheat me.  So I thought I’d try a hooded cowl.  I found a pattern online to try with a couple modifications and then freeformed the fingerless gloves.

Materials:

  • 6mm crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn, I used Caron Big Cakes in Honey Glazed (1 cake)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

The pattern is main just griddle stitch (sometimes called cobble stitch), which is an sc, dc pattern.

Hooded Cowl

For the cowl, I followed this pattern from Bernat/Yarnspirations: Hooded Cowl (PDF here)

I followed it pretty much exactly, except I made it a bit shorter because I wanted to make sure I had enough yarn for the gloves.  Now that I’m finished, I’m sure I could have made it the full 26″.  Instead I made it ~20″ long, which works for my head at least!  It’s simply a tube:

Fingerless Gloves

These I freeformed.  Here’s the pattern, which starts from the bottom so adjust sizing as needed!

Round 1: ch 20 LOOSELY, sl st into first ch to join in the round, being careful not to twist
Round 2: ch 1, sc in each ch around (20 st)
Round 3: ch 1, *sc in next st, dc in next st* repeat around (forming the griddle stitch), sl st into the first sc from the round to join (do this for all rounds)
Rounds 4-15: repeat round 3
Round 16: ch 1, sc, dc and sc in the first st, dc in the next st, *sc in the next st, dc in the next st* repeat around, sl st into first sc from the round to join (this increases slightly for the wrist)
Rounds 17-23: repeat round 3
Round 24: ch 1, *sc in next st, dc in next st* repeat around until 5 st remain, ch 1, sl st into the first sc from the round to join (this creates the separation for the thumb)
Rounds 25-28: repeat round 3
Round 29: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st into first sc from the round to join
Round 30: as round 29
Fasten off.

Note: I didn’t do the last 2 rounds on my mitts pictured simply to avoid an unwanted colour change. 🙂

Thumb:

Join yarn in any st and work in pattern (sc into a dc st, dc into an sc st) around, picking up the stitches along the inner thumb, in pattern as in round 3 above for 2 rounds.  Then follow round 29 twice and fasten off.

Weave in loose ends and enjoy!
