Rhiannon Convertible Hooded Cowl Pattern

UPDATE 10/11/19- I have given this pattern a makeover and have released the new version FOR FREE on my blog here: Rhiannon Cowl Crochet Pattern. You can also get the new version of this pattern as a downloadable, printable, ad-free PDF in my Etsy Shop , Ko-Fi Shop, and Ravelry Store!


Though it started as part of a different project (that didn’t work out), I am totally happy with what it turned into – an awesome, versatile piece that’s even more fun to wear than it is to make. The first few I made were great stash-busters, and the chunky silver version pictured here is so soft! The best part? You can totally crochet this while watching Netflix, because the pattern is deceptively simple. ‘Tis the season… to binge-watch.

Enough blathering, here’s the official rundown.


If you can chain, single crochet, and double crochet, you can make this fabulous convertible cowl! With a deceptively simple stitch pattern and a few quick construction elements, even beginners can work this stylish fairytale wardrobe staple. Wear it four different ways – stitch it in two different yarn weights – paint it in endless color combinations! Great for gift-giving, stashbusting, and just plain looking sweet.


Though it can be used by anybody,  I wanted to offer a high-quality, clear pattern that is also unique and interesting for beginners to make. The pattern includes a quick-reference list of abbreviations for ease of pattern reading and photo-tutorials with step-by-step instructions.


The Rhiannon Convertible Hooded Cowl is long enough to wear as a small wrap vest, while the leaf motif drawstring can convert it to a closed, deep-hooded capelet look. The open ended front has enough room to double up the cowl around your neck for extra warmth, and the back of the hood comes to a sweet but subtle point.


Now’s as good a place as any to say a great big Thank You to everyone who supports my blog and patterns – not just through sales but subscribing, sharing, and leaving those awesomely sweet comments! That said, I’m off! As ever, homework (and more patterns) awaits me.

  1. Used the large size and the hood was still too shallow for me so I ended up adding 4 rows extra. But this was a super fun project to make! Thank you!
