One Caron Cake Hood Crochet Pattern | I’m so loving Caron Cakes yarn. I love the soft feel of the yarn and especially the large blocks of color. Who doesn’t want to get the look of striping without weaving in all the ends, right? I wanted to make something different with this skein, so I decided to try a pretty hood for my Mini Me.

I love this pattern and so does my Mini Me. I used almost exactly one skein of Caron Cake for this pattern, but any worsted weight 4 yarn would work.  A skein of Caron Cake is 383 yd.

One skein Caron Cake in Cherry Chip

6 mm hook (G)

Yarn needle

Scissors

Difficulty: Moderate

Stitches to know:

Ch – chain

Sl st – slip stitch

Sc – single crochet

Dc – double crochet

Fsc – foundation single crochet (this is a great video tutorial: http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/) You could also make a chain and single crochet into the chain

Starting with the hood:

Row 1:  Fsc 61 (or chain 62, sc into 2nd chain from the hook and across)

Note: You can easily make this hood another size. Make sure to start your fsc/chain with a multiple of 6 + 1

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 5 dc, skip 2 stitches, sc* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Row 3: Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, sc (on top of shell), skip 2 stitches, 5 dc (into sc)* repeat from * to * 8 times, skip 2 stitches, sc, skip 2 stitches, 3 dc (9 full shells and 2 3dc shells at each end)

Note: for the rest of the hood the shells will increase to 7 dc in each (instead of 5)

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 7 dc (into sc), skip 2 stitches, sc (on top of shell)* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Row 5: Ch 3, turn, 3 dc in same stitch, *skip 3 stitches, sc (on top of shell), skip 3 stitches, 7 dc (into sc)* repeat from * to * 8 times, skip 3 stitches, sc, skip 3 stitches, 4 dc (9 full shells and 2 4dc shells at each end)

Row 6: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 3 stitches, 7 dc (into sc), skip 3 stitches, sc (on top of shell)* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Repeat rows 5 & 6 to row 16 (or until your desired length for the hood)

Fold in half and inside out so it looks like a hood.

IMG_8747Sew the back together by using sc. Fasten off, weave in ends. Turn rightside out so the seam is on the inside.

Insert your hook in the bottom corner of the hood. Now working along the bottom of the hood, you will start making the cape.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc 61 into the bottom (if your hood is a different size, make sure you sc a multiple of 6 + 1) (61)

Note: in the next row you will be making the holes for the drawstring to go through

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and next stitch, *ch 1, skip next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches* repeat from * to * 10 times, ch 1, skip next stitch, dc in next 3 stitches

Row 3: Ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and each stitch and chain across (61)

Note: now you’ll start making shells

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 5 dc, skip 2 stitches, sc* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Row 5: Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, sc (on top of shell), skip 2 stitches, 5 dc (into sc)* repeat from * to * 8 times, skip 2 stitches, sc, skip 2 stitches, 3 dc (9 full shells and 2 3dc shells at each end)

Note: for the rest of the hood the shells will increase to 7 dc in each (instead of 5)

Row 6: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 7 dc (into sc), skip 2 stitches, sc (on top of shell)* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Row 7: Ch 3, turn, 3 dc in same stitch, *skip 3 stitches, sc (on top of shell), skip 3 stitches, 7 dc (into sc)* repeat from * to * 8 times, skip 3 stitches, sc, skip 3 stitches, 4 dc (9 full shells and 2 4dc shells at each end)

Row 8: Ch 1, turn, sc into same stitch, *skip 3 stitches, 7 dc (into sc), skip 3 stitches, sc (on top of shell)* repeat from * to * across (10 shells)

Repeat rows 7 & 8 to row 20, or until desired length

For the drawstring:

Ch 150, fasten off, don’t weave in ends. String drawstring through the holes made in row 2 of the cape.

Make two pom poms. Attach the pom poms to each end of the drawstring.
