The​ ​Albatross​ ​Hooded​ ​Cardigan   

Crochet​ ​pattern​ ​by​ ​Hailey​ ​Bailey 


    The​ ​albatross​ ​is​ ​a​ ​fantastically​ ​unique​ ​seabird.​ ​The​ ​wandering​ ​albatross​ ​has​ ​the  largest​ ​wingspan​ ​of​ ​any​ ​bird​ ​at​ ​about​ ​11​ ​feet​ ​across​ ​and​ ​can,​ ​amazingly,​ ​stay​ ​in  flight​ ​for​ ​months​ ​at​ ​a​ ​time,​ ​flying​ ​over​ ​up​ ​to​ ​10,000​ ​miles​ ​of​ ​ocean​ ​on​ ​each 

excursion.​ ​The​ ​albatross​ ​also​ ​has​ ​the​ ​most​ ​amazingly​ ​awkward​ ​mating​ ​dance,  (Seriously.​ ​Look​ ​it​ ​up!)​ ​This​ ​hooded​ ​cardigan​ ​is​ ​perfect​ ​for​ ​living​ ​your​ ​best 

seabird​ ​life​ ​--​ ​the​ ​chunky​ ​textured​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​will​ ​keep​ ​you​ ​warm​ ​(which​ ​is 

essential​ ​on​ ​the​ ​chilly​ ​Northwest​ ​coast!)​ ​and​ ​the​ ​hood​ ​will​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​wind​ ​and  sea​ ​spray​ ​out​ ​of​ ​your​ ​hair.   

This​ ​pattern​ ​is​ ​for​ ​personal​ ​use​ ​only.​ ​Please​ ​do​ ​not​ ​alter,​ ​share,​ ​copy​ ​or​ ​rewrite​ ​this​ ​pattern  in​ ​any​ ​way.​ ​You​ ​may​ ​sell​ ​finished​ ​pieces​ ​made​ ​from​ ​this​ ​pattern​ ​but​ ​please​ ​credit​ ​my​ ​etsy  shop.​ ​By​ ​doing​ ​so​ ​you​ ​help​ ​to​ ​support​ ​my​ ​small​ ​business​ ​and​ ​my​ ​family.​ ​Thank​ ​you! 


  You​ ​will​ ​need: 

○ Approx.​ ​1,600-2,000​ ​yards​ ​of​ ​size​ ​4​ ​yarn​ ​(I​ ​used​ ​about​ ​7​ ​skeins​ ​of​ ​Caron​ ​Simply​ ​Soft  Tweed​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​size​ ​medium.)​ ​The​ ​quantity​ ​of​ ​yarn​ ​needed​ ​will​ ​vary​ ​depending  upon​ ​the​ ​size​ ​of​ ​your​ ​sweater. 

○ Size​ ​I/5.5mm​ ​crochet​ ​hook​ ​(for​ ​ribbing)​ ​and​ ​size​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​crochet​ ​hook​ ​(for​ ​the  majority​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater) 

○ Scissors 

○ Yarn​ ​needle   

○ Measuring​ ​tape 

Stitches​ ​used: 

○ Chain​ ​(ch) 

○ Slip​ ​stitch​ ​(sl​ ​st) 

○ Half​ ​Double​ ​Crochet​ ​(hdc) 

○ Back​ ​loop​ ​half​ ​double​ ​crochet​ ​(blhdc)   

○ Moss​ ​stitch​ ​(*sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st,​ ​hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st.​ ​Repeat​ ​from​ ​*) 

Sizing/Gauge:  *This​ ​pattern​ ​uses​ ​measurements​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​the​ ​best​ ​fit​ ​for​ ​you,​ ​The​ ​pattern 

includes​ ​suggested​ ​measurements​ ​to​ ​create​ ​adult​ ​sizes​ ​Small​ ​(US​ ​women’s​ ​sizes​ ​4-6) 

Medium​ ​(sizes​ ​8-10)​ ​and​ ​Large​ ​(sizes​ ​12-14)​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​sizing​ ​tips​ ​to​ ​customize​ ​the​ ​size 

of​ ​your​ ​sweater​ ​to​ ​fit​ ​perfectly.​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​want​ ​a​ ​looser​ ​sleeve,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​feel  free​ ​to​ ​create​ ​your​ ​pieces​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​wider​ ​than​ ​suggested.​ ​Because​ ​of​ ​this​ ​emphasis  on​ ​measurements,​ ​the​ ​pattern​ ​does​ ​not​ ​strictly​ ​depend​ ​upon​ ​achieving​ ​an​ ​exact 

gauge,​ ​so​ ​don’t​ ​worry​ ​if​ ​your​ ​gauge​ ​does​ ​not​ ​match​ ​my​ ​swatch​ ​exactly!​ ​It​ ​matters  more​ ​that​ ​your​ ​fabric​ ​has​ ​drape​ ​and​ ​is​ ​not​ ​too​ ​stiff​ ​--​ ​if​ ​it​ ​is,​ ​try​ ​a​ ​larger​ ​hook.   

Gauge​ ​swatch:​ ​using​ ​your​ ​size​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​hook, 

1. Ch​ ​13,​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​2nd​ ​ch​ ​from​ ​hook.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​ch.​ ​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​(*sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​next​ ​ch.  Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​ch.​ ​Repeat​ ​from​ ​*)​ ​across.​ ​Turn.  

2. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across.​ ​Repeat​ ​for​ ​a​ ​total​ ​of​ ​14​ ​rows.​ ​Your​ ​finished​ ​swatch  should​ ​be​ ​about​ ​4”​ ​x​ ​4”​ ​square. 

  Pattern​ ​for​ ​Adult​ ​Size​ ​Cardigan 


Sleeve​ ​cuffs​ ​(make​ ​2): 

With​ ​your​ ​I/5.5mm​ ​hook,​ ​Ch​ ​7.

3. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3​ ​until​ ​cuff​ ​reaches​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​length​ ​(small:​ ​7”​ ​medium:​ ​8”  large:​ ​9”)​ ​*Sizing​ ​tip:​ ​You​ ​may​ ​adjust​ ​this​ ​measurement​ ​to​ ​fit​ ​loosely​ ​around​ ​your  wrist​ ​by​ ​using​ ​your​ ​true​ ​measurements,​ ​or​ ​you​ ​may​ ​make​ ​it​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​larger​ ​than  suggested​ ​if​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​have​ ​baggier​ ​sleeves. 

4. Rotate​ ​piece​ ​so​ ​that​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​working​ ​across​ ​the​ ​long​ ​length​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cuff.  Ch​ ​1.​ ​Sc​ ​evenly​ ​across​ ​the​ ​length​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cuff.​ ​(be​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​stitch​ ​count​ ​is  an​ ​even​ ​number)​ ​Turn.  

Continue​ ​working​ ​on​ ​the​ ​body​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​as​ ​follows:   

Body​ ​of​ ​sleeve:​ ​start​ ​from​ ​where​ ​you​ ​just​ ​left​ ​off​ ​on​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​cuffs.  Switch​ ​to​ ​your​ ​size​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​hook! 

1. Ch​ ​1​ ​(does​ ​not​ ​count​ ​as​ ​a​ ​stitch)​ ​*Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​first​ ​st.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st.​ ​Repeat  from​ ​*​ ​across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(This​ ​repeat​ ​will​ ​be​ ​referred​ ​to​ ​throughout​ ​the 

pattern​ ​as​ ​the​ ​“moss​ ​stitch.”​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​are​ ​ending​ ​each​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​row  with​ ​a​ ​hdc​ ​and​ ​beginning​ ​each​ ​row​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sl​ ​st.) 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​2-6.​ ​Repeat​ ​row​ ​1​ ​for​ ​the​ ​next​ ​5​ ​rows​ ​(for​ ​a​ ​total​ ​of​ ​6​ ​rows.) 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​7.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Ch​ ​1.​ ​(Sl​ ​st,​ ​hdc)​ ​in​ ​first​ ​st.​ ​*Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st.  

Repeat​ ​from​ ​*​ ​as​ ​normally​ ​across​ ​until​ ​you​ ​reach​ ​the​ ​last​ ​st.​ ​(Sl​ ​st,​ ​hdc)​ ​in   last​ ​st.​ ​Turn.​ ​(Note:​ ​as​ ​you​ ​complete​ ​this​ ​row​ ​you​ ​may​ ​notice​ ​that​ ​the​ ​moss​ ​stitch 

pattern​ ​is​ ​aligned​ ​differently​ ​than​ ​when​ ​you​ ​were​ ​creating​ ​the​ ​previous​ ​rows.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​normal!  Just​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​count​ ​your​ ​stitches​ ​and​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​you​ ​are​ ​increasing​ ​by​ ​2​ ​st​ ​at​ ​each  increase​ ​row.) 

  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​8-13.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​14.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​15-20.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​21.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​22-27.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​28.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​29-34.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​35.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​36-41.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​42.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​43-48.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows.  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​49.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​50-55.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​6​ ​rows  ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​56.​ ​(Increase​ ​row)​ ​Repeat​ ​step​ ​7. 

​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​57…​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across​ ​for​ ​each​ ​row​ ​from​ ​now​ ​on,​ ​no​ ​longer​ ​increasing  every​ ​7th​ ​row,​ ​until​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​sleeve​ ​(including​ ​cuff)​ ​reaches​ ​your​ ​desired 

length​ ​(Small:​ ​19”​ ​Medium:​ ​20”​ ​Large:​ ​21”​ ​I​ ​made​ ​a​ ​size​ ​medium​ ​and​ ​ended​ ​up 

with​ ​68​ ​total​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​rows.)​ ​*Size​ ​tip:​ ​Adjust​ ​this​ ​length​ ​to​ ​create​ ​longer​ ​or​ ​shorter  sleeves​ ​as​ ​needed!   

Bind​ ​off,​ ​leaving​ ​a  long​ ​tail​ ​to​ ​stitch  your​ ​sleeve 

together​ ​later. 

Repeat​ ​this​ ​process  to​ ​create​ ​your 

second​ ​sleeve!  4 

  Back​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater​ ​(make​ ​1)​ ​starting​ ​with​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​ribbing:  Use​ ​your​ ​smaller​ ​I/5.5mm​ ​hook​ ​for​ ​the​ ​ribbing!  1. Ch​ ​7. 

2. Hdc​ ​in​ ​second​ ​ch​ ​from​ ​hook.​ ​Hdc​ ​across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(6​ ​st)  3. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Blhdc​ ​across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(6​ ​st) 

4. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3​ ​until​ ​the​ ​ribbing​ ​reaches​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​length​ ​(small:​ ​16” 

medium:​ ​18”​ ​large:​ ​20”)​ ​*Sizing​ ​tip:​ ​You​ ​can​ ​also​ ​adjust​ ​this​ ​measurement​ ​to​ ​create  a​ ​narrower​ ​or​ ​wider​ ​fit.​ ​The​ ​wider​ ​you​ ​make​ ​this​ ​piece,​ ​the​ ​more​ ​loosely​ ​the​ ​sweater  will​ ​fit.​ ​Keep​ ​in​ ​mind​ ​that​ ​your​ ​sweater​ ​will​ ​also​ ​be​ ​heavier​ ​if​ ​you​ ​do​ ​this! 

5. Rotate​ ​so​ ​that​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​working​ ​across​ ​the​ ​length​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ribbing.​ ​Ch​ ​1.  Sc​ ​evenly​ ​across.​ ​(Again,​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​stitch​ ​count​ ​is​ ​an​ ​even​ ​number!)  Turn.  

Switch​ ​to​ ​your​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​hook.​​ ​Ch​ ​1. 

6. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across.​ ​Turn. 

7. Repeat​ ​step​ ​6​ ​until​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​piece​ ​(including​ ​ribbing​ ​along​ ​the​ ​bottom) 

reaches​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​length​ ​(Small:​ ​27”​ ​Medium:​ ​28”​ ​Large:​ ​29”​ ​I​ ​created​ ​a  medium​ ​and​ ​ended​ ​up​ ​with​ ​92​ ​total​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​rows)​ *​ Sizing​ ​tip:​ ​You 

guessed​ ​it!​ ​You​ ​can​ ​also​ ​customize​ ​this​ ​measurement​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​longer​ ​or​ ​shorter   

sweater.​ ​Just​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​make​ ​your​ ​front​ ​pieces​ ​the​ ​same​ ​length. 


Bind​ ​off.​ ​Your​ ​back  panel​ ​is​ ​now  complete!   

  Front​ ​panels​ ​(make​ ​2)​ ​Starting​ ​with​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​ribbing:  Use​ ​your​ ​smaller​ ​I/5.5mm​ ​hook​ ​for​ ​the​ ​ribbing!  8. Ch​ ​7. 

9. Hdc​ ​in​ ​second​ ​ch​ ​from​ ​hook.​ ​Hdc​ ​across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(6​ ​st)  10. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Blhdc​ ​across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(6​ ​st) 

11. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3​ ​until​ ​the​ ​ribbing​ ​reaches​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​length​ ​(small:​ ​10”  medium:​ ​11”​ ​large:​ ​12”)​ ​*Sizing​ ​tip:​ ​This​ ​measurement​ ​is​ ​also​ ​adjustable.​ ​If​ ​you 

create​ ​your​ ​back​ ​panel​ ​wider​ ​than​ ​suggested,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​want​ ​to​ ​add​ ​some​ ​width​ ​to​ ​the 

front​ ​panels,​ ​too.​ ​I​ ​use​ ​the​ ​following​ ​rule:​ ​The​ ​width​ ​of​ ​the​ ​front​ ​panels​ ​added​ ​together  should​ ​equal​ ​about​ ​4​ ​inches​ ​more​ ​than​ ​the​ ​back​ ​panel.​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​two​ ​11”​ ​front  panels​ ​=​ ​22”​ ​for​ ​a​ ​size​ ​medium,​ ​with​ ​the​ ​back​ ​panel​ ​for​ ​a​ ​medium​ ​being​ ​18”​ ​wide. 

12. Rotate​ ​so​ ​that​ ​you​ ​will​ ​be​ ​working​ ​across​ ​the​ ​length​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ribbing.​ ​Ch​ ​1.  Sc​ ​evenly​ ​across.​ ​(Again,​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​stitch​ ​count​ ​is​ ​an​ ​even​ ​number!)  Turn.  

Switch​ ​to​ ​your​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​hook.​​ ​Ch​ ​1. 

13. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Moss​ ​stitch​ ​across.​ ​Turn. 

14. Repeat​ ​step​ ​6​ ​until​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​piece​ ​(including​ ​ribbing​ ​along​ ​the​ ​bottom) 

reaches​ ​your​ ​desired​ ​length​ ​(Small:​ ​27”​ ​Medium:​ ​28”​ ​Large:​ ​29”)​ *​ Sizing​ ​tip: 


Make​ ​these​ ​as​ ​long​ ​as​ ​your​ ​back​ ​panel​ ​and​ ​you​ ​are​ ​golden! 

Bind​ ​off,​ ​leaving​ ​a​ ​long  tail​ ​for​ ​attaching​ ​your  front​ ​panels​ ​to​ ​your  back​ ​panel​ ​later​ ​on. 

Repeat​ ​this​ ​process​ ​to  create​ ​your​ ​second  front​ ​panel. 

  Now​ ​we​ ​will​ ​put​ ​the​ ​main​ ​pieces​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater​ ​together​ ​before​ ​we​ ​create​ ​the  hood​ ​and​ ​finishing​ ​touches.   

Stitching:​ ​We​ ​will​ ​be​ ​using​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​sewing​ ​stitch​ ​to​ ​attach​ ​the​ ​pieces​ ​of​ ​the 

sweater.​ ​The​ ​whip​ ​stitch​ ​works​ ​perfectly​ ​well​ ​for​ ​this​ ​use.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​would​ ​prefer,  you​ ​can​ ​also​ ​sc​ ​the​ ​pieces​ ​together​ ​for​ ​added​ ​strength.   

Lay​ ​your​ ​two​ ​front​ ​panels​ ​on​ ​top​ ​of​ ​your​ ​back​ ​panel,​ ​with​ ​the​ ​outer​ ​edges 

aligned​ ​(there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​overlap​ ​in​ ​the​ ​center​ ​where​ ​the​ ​front​ ​panels​ ​meet​ ​together  --​ ​this​ ​is​ ​normal).​ ​Starting​ ​at​ ​the​ ​outer​ ​corner,​ ​stitch​ ​the​ ​top​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​your​ ​front  panel​ ​to​ ​the​ ​top​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​the​ ​back​ ​panel​ ​halfway​ ​across​ ​the​ ​width​ ​of​ ​the​ ​front 

panel​ ​(for​ ​example,​ ​a​ ​medium​ ​front​ ​panel​ ​is​ ​11”​ ​wide,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​will​ ​stitch​ ​about​ ​5.5”  of​ ​the​ ​front​ ​panel​ ​to​ ​the​ ​back).​ ​Repeat​ ​on​ ​the​ ​other​ ​side.​ ​Use​ ​the​ ​image​ ​below​ ​as  a​ ​guide.       


  Now​ ​we​ ​will​ ​finish​ ​the​ ​sleeves​ ​and​ ​attach​ ​them​ ​to​ ​the​ ​sweater. 

Fold​ ​each​ ​completed​ ​sleeve​ ​in​ ​half.​ ​Using​ ​your​ ​long​ ​length​ ​of​ ​yarn​ ​leftover​ ​from  creating​ ​the​ ​sleeve,​ ​stitch​ ​down​ ​the​ ​length​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​tube.                                Now​ ​we​ ​will​ ​stitch​ ​the​ ​sleeves​ ​and​ ​the​ ​body​ ​together.​ ​Turn​ ​your​ ​sleeve​ ​right 

side​ ​out​ ​and​ ​sandwich​ ​it​ ​between​ ​the​ ​front​ ​and​ ​back​ ​panels​ ​(which​ ​should​ ​still  have​ ​the​ ​wrong​ ​sides​ ​facing​ ​out.)  

Line​ ​up​ ​the​ ​top​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​with​ ​the​ ​top​ ​of​ ​the​ ​body,​ ​where​ ​you​ ​stitched​ ​the 

front​ ​and​ ​back​ ​together.​ ​The​ ​seam​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​should​ ​lay​ ​where​ ​the​ ​armpit​ ​of  the​ ​sweater​ ​will​ ​be.  

Stitch​ ​around​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​circular​ ​opening​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sleeve,​ ​making​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​secure  both​ ​the​ ​front​ ​and​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​armpit​ ​area​ ​where​ ​the​ ​sleeve​ ​seam​ ​meets​ ​both  pieces.​ ​Repeat​ ​for​ ​your​ ​second​ ​sleeve. 

  To​ ​create​ ​the​ ​hood,​ ​first​ ​we​ ​need​ ​to​ ​see​ ​how​ ​many​ ​stitches​ ​wide​ ​our​ ​hood​ ​needs  to​ ​be.​ ​To​ ​determine​ ​this,​ ​count​ ​the​ ​number​ ​of​ ​stitches​ ​across​ ​the​ ​top​ ​of​ ​your 

sweater​ ​(starting​ ​from​ ​the​ ​corner​ ​of​ ​the​ ​front​ ​panel​ ​where​ ​it​ ​is​ ​hanging​ ​free​ ​and  ending​ ​at​ ​the​ ​same​ ​place​ ​on​ ​the​ ​other​ ​front​ ​panel).​ ​See​ ​image​ ​below​ ​for 

guidance.​ ​Now​ ​take​ ​this​ ​stitch​ ​count​ ​and​ ​divide​ ​it​ ​by​ ​2​ ​(I​ ​counted​ ​64​ ​stitches,  which​ ​divided​ ​by​ ​2​ ​equals​ ​32.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​end​ ​up​ ​with​ ​an​ ​odd​ ​number,​ ​subtract​ ​1  before​ ​dividing​ ​by​ ​2.)                                       

  Hood​ ​(make​ ​2) 

Using​ ​your​ ​K/6.5mm​ ​hook​,​ ​Chain​ ​your​ ​determined​ ​number​ ​+​ ​1.​ ​(For​ ​my  example,​ ​this​ ​means​ ​ch​ ​33). 

1. Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​2nd​ ​ch​ ​from​ ​hook.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​ch.​ ​Continue​ ​the​ ​moss​ ​stitch 

across.​ ​Turn.​ ​(As​ ​always,​ ​be​ ​sure​ ​your​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​rows​ ​end​ ​with​ ​a​ ​hdc). 

2. Repeat​ ​the​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​until​ ​your​ ​piece​ ​measures​ ​about​ ​10”​ ​long.​ ​Turn. 

*​Sizing​ ​tip!​ ​This​ ​measurement​ ​is​ ​pretty​ ​important,​ ​but​ ​you​ ​can​ ​make​ ​it​ ​longer​ ​if​ ​you  want​ ​an​ ​oversized​ ​hood​ ​with​ ​extra​ ​drape​ ​around​ ​your​ ​face.  

3. Begin​ ​the​ ​row​ ​as​ ​normal​ ​with​ ​the​ ​moss​ ​stitch,​ ​but​ ​stop​ ​when​ ​you​ ​have​ ​2  st​ ​remaining.​ ​Turn.  

4. Complete​ ​your​ ​next​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​row​ ​as​ ​normal.​ ​Turn.  5. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3.​ ​Turn. 

6. Repeat​ ​step​ ​4.​ ​Turn.  7. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3.​ ​Turn. 

8. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Skip​ ​first​ ​st.​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​2nd​ ​st.​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​3rd​ ​st.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​next​ ​st.​ ​Continue  with​ ​moss​ ​stitch​ ​for​ ​the​ ​remainder​ ​of​ ​the​ ​row. 

9. Repeat​ ​step​ ​3. 

10. Repeat​ ​step​ ​8.​ ​Bind​ ​off,​ ​leaving​ ​a​ ​long​ ​length​ ​of​ ​yarn​ ​for​ ​attaching​ ​your   

two​ ​halves​ ​of​ ​the​ ​hood​ ​later. 

    Repeat​ ​this​ ​process​ ​to 

create​ ​your​ ​second​ ​half​ ​of  the​ ​hood.   


  Stack​ ​your​ ​two​ ​halves​ ​of​ ​the​ ​hood​ ​on​ ​top​ ​of​ ​one​ ​another.​ ​Stitch​ ​along​ ​the  curved​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​the​ ​hood,​ ​using​ ​the​ ​image​ ​below​ ​as​ ​a​ ​guide.                                  Your​ ​hood​ ​should​ ​look​ ​like​ ​this​ ​when​ ​opened:                  11 

  To​ ​attach​ ​the​ ​hood​ ​to​ ​your​ ​sweater,​ ​simply​ ​stitch​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​the 

finished​ ​hood​ ​along​ ​that​ ​space​ ​where​ ​you​ ​counted​ ​your​ ​stitches​ ​(the​ ​top​ ​of  your​ ​sweater).   

                                      You​ ​are​ ​almost​ ​done​ ​with​ ​your​ ​sweater!​ ​Our​ ​last​ ​step​ ​will​ ​be​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​ribbed  edge​ ​along​ ​the​ ​center​ ​perimeter​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater,​ ​which​ ​will​ ​give​ ​it​ ​a​ ​finishing  touch​ ​and​ ​add​ ​width​ ​to​ ​the​ ​hood.   


  Ribbed​ ​edge: 

Remember​ ​to​ ​use​ ​your​ ​smaller​ ​I/5.5mm​ ​hook! 

Join​ ​yarn​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sl​ ​st​ ​at​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​corner​ ​of​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​front​ ​panels.  1. Ch​ ​7. 

2. Hdc​ ​in​ ​second​ ​ch​ ​from​ ​hook.​ ​Hdc​ ​in​ ​remaining​ ​ch​ ​(6​ ​hdc) 

3. Sl​ ​st​ ​this​ ​row​ ​of​ ​crochet​ ​to​ ​the​ ​body​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater.​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​2  spaces​ ​along​ ​the​ ​sweater.​ ​Turn. 

4. Ch​ ​1.​ ​Blhdc​ ​back​ ​across​ ​the​ ​little​ ​row​ ​of​ ​crochet.​ ​Turn. 

5. Blhdc​ ​back​ ​across​ ​until​ ​you​ ​reach​ ​the​ ​sweater​ ​again.​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​to​ ​the​ ​body​ ​of  the​ ​sweater​ ​and​ ​sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​2​ ​spaces​ ​along​ ​the​ ​sweater.​ ​Turn. 

6. Repeat​ ​steps​ ​4​ ​and​ ​5​ ​across​ ​the​ ​edge​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sweater,​ ​going​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​up  the​ ​front​ ​panel,​ ​around​ ​the​ ​hood,​ ​and​ ​back​ ​down​ ​the​ ​other​ ​side​ ​of​ ​the  sweater.  

See​ ​images​ ​on​ ​the​ ​next​ ​page​ ​for​ ​guidance.   

This​ ​ribbing​ ​should​ ​lay​ ​nicely​ ​flat​ ​as​ ​you​ ​go​ ​along.​ ​If​ ​it​ ​looks​ ​too​ ​tight,​ ​try​ ​just​ ​1 

sl​ ​st​ ​between​ ​each​ ​row​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​2.​ ​In​ ​turn,​ ​if​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​too​ ​“floppy”​ ​or​ ​like​ ​there  is​ ​too​ ​much​ ​fabric,​ ​try​ ​adding​ ​another​ ​sl​ ​st​ ​between​ ​each​ ​row.​ ​ ​This​ ​part​ ​can​ ​be  tricky​ ​and​ ​fiddly​ ​but​ ​don’t​ ​let​ ​it​ ​discourage​ ​you!​ ​The​ ​end​ ​result​ ​is​ ​worth​ ​it!       





​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Bhdc​ ​across…​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Sl​ ​st​ ​to​ ​the​ ​sweater. 

Sl​ ​st​ ​in​ ​two​ ​spaces​ ​along​ ​the​ ​sweater.​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Ch​ ​1.​ ​Now​ ​you​ ​will​ ​turn​ ​and​ ​blhdc    

back​ ​across​ ​the​ ​little​ ​section.
