Knit Hood

This is my own pattern. I took my idea from this pattern. But since I don't have circular knitting needles I created my own patter. (

If you need clarification on the pattern please comment.


  • Yarn
  • Knitting needle 10mm
  • Sewing Machine (or you can hand sew with the yarn)


  • cnf- cable needle hold in front
  • cnb- cable needle hold in back
  • lf- left needle
  • *___* -repeat what is inside till end of row

What you will be making is a big rectangle. How long it is is up to you (How many you cast on and how many times you repeat the steps.)

Cast on a multiple of 14 plus 8. See Pattern.
This first part is for  where the buttons will be placed. You can repeat these steps until you are satisfied.
  1. Row 1(RS): k
This part is for the cabled look of the pattern. Repeat as much as you'd like for the length of the hood (how far back it goes).
  1. Row 1(RS): k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  2. Row 2: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  3. Row 3: k4, *p4, k6, p4, *k4.
  4. Row 4: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4.
  5. Row 5: k4, *p4, slip 3 sts to cnf, k3 from ln, slip sts from cn onto ln then k3, p4, *k4
  6. Row 6: p4, *k4, p6, k4, *p4
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 until you reach desired length.
When finished fold the work in half so that the right sides are facing each other. Sew one side of the work together to make a hood.
