These hooded cowls are so easy to crochet without resorting to a pattern. I picked up the basic idea of how to make a hooded cowl from this pattern, but I have made adjustments. https://crochetingwithjoy.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/unnamed-8.jpg?w=788 For a one-year-old child, chain 35 stitches with thick yarn such as Bernat Blanket Yarn using an N-9mm hook, make a magic circle and double crochet three rows for the neck.
