Easy Basic Boho Hood -free crochet pattern-


You can do so many things with a basic crochet hood!  You can give it braids, buttons, beads, add ears, horns, eyes, pom poms, and so much more. I've been making a few hoods lately, and this is the pattern for its basic structure. I added big wooden beads onto the braids of mine to give it bit of a Bohemian vibe. I really love my basic hood pattern because it is not flat at the back, however instead, it sort of butterflies out and around the shoulders, so that there is no bulkiness behind the neck. This pattern is super easy!  It consists of half double crochet, chains, and a bit of reverse single crochet for the border.

Loosely braid the 3 strands together and tie off.

  2. Hi! I'm attempting this lovely pattern. However, I am running into issues at round 1. My count is off. I've attempted several times. Not sure if the count is off in the pattern.
