The Cwtch (Cuddle) Cowl and Hood is Here!

The word cwtch (pronounced cootch) is a Welsh word meaning "to cuddle". This snuggly soft Cwtch Cowl & Hood is so named because it is super cuddly, drapey and versatile in both color and options for wearing.





Wear it up over the top of your head as a hood for extra warmth.


Or roll the top down for a shorter cowl.



However you choose to wear it--you can Cwtch up in it!


My testers made it in neutrals with a little pop of color for the edging, which looks very classy. I'm thinking a linen color with neon orange or neon pink trim would look terrifically crisp. You could work the trim in yarn that matches the piece too, for a clean and simple finish. I even made a sample cowl (sorry no pictures) in stripes that changed colors every couple of rows. Very versatile!

The yarn I used in the sample shown here is Caron Country in Deep Purple (a lovely microdenier acrylic and wool blend) with the trim in I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby in Monkey Red. (The same yarn I made my I Heart Boot Cuffs in--free pattern here.)






I think the pattern is ideal for an advanced beginner. It also includes simple instructions for changing up the circumference and height very easily. 

You can find the Cwtch Cowl & Hood in my Ravelry shop here, my Craftsy shop here, or my Etsy shop here.

Happy Hooking, All!

  2. Hey Susan - I only just saw this older post - how lovely that you have a pattern with a Cwtch in it! I didn't know that and it gave me a big smile :D Just one little note re the pronunciation, which you might know now anyway, cwtch rhymes with 'butch' rather than 'smooch' xxx
