I love crocheting because it is so easy to adapt and change patterns. Etsy wanted over 6 dollars for patterns for animal hooded cowls. Instead I unearthed the free pattern below to give me some idea of how to make a hooded cowl, then adapted the pattern. My results were a wonderful surprise. The free pattern can be found at
My hooded cowls so far. The ones that turned out best were made from thick, spongy blanket wool and a size 9mm or an M hook.
