This listing is for a crochet pattern for a bear hood. Sometimes called a cowl or scoodie, these animal hoods are very popular with children in the cold weather. This crochet pattern uses UK crochet terms.




This is a great cosy hood and scarf all in one. Slips over the head easily, wear as a baggy hood or button under the chin for extra snugness. It is super soft and snuggly and will keep out a cold wind, and even light rain.  Especially for the children - cute bear ears



Instructions are given for six different sizes of hood, from baby to adult. The baby size can also be used to fit a doll so your child and their toy can have matching animal heads!



This pattern uses chunky yarn so this pattern crochets up fast. 



Using chunky yarn, we recommend a 9mm (US size 13) hook for the main hood pattern and a 7mm/6.5mm (US size 10.5) hook for the hood edge. You will need between 150g/150m and 300g/300m of yarn depending on the size being made.  



This is a really helpful crochet pattern.  Not just full instructions on how to create the hood, but also descriptions of how to follow the directions and sections of techniques used with pictures and step by step instructions.  Great for novice crocheters, or if you just need a bit of extra help.  But it still works for experienced crocheters!



We want to make sure that you are totally happy with your crocheted creation so we are here to help you every step of  the way. If you are unsure about anything in the pattern, please contact us!
