Minka Hooded Crochet Pattern & Video from 52 Crochet Gifts Book featuring Be So Sporty BLING Yarn


52 Crochet Gifts Book By Kristin Omdahl

Design Inspiration for the Minka Hooded Crochet Pattern

This beautiful hooded cowl is worked in the round using easy stitches. The picot-trimmed chain fringe frames the collar bones and shoulders  elegantly. The drape of the yarn allows the hood to sit up on the head on a blustery winter day or make beautiful folds as it drapes around the neck.

The Minka Hooded Crochet Pattern features Be So Toasty Yarn in hand dyed color Aqua. Choose from many different hand dyed colors, all dyed by me in my Florida studio!

Be So Toasty Yarn is a #1 fingering weight yarn that is 65% super wash merino wool and 35% bamboo – it is so soft and lofty with gorgeous drape.

This is a one-ball project! You can make this gorgeous scarf quickly and with only 1 ball of yarn!
