Easy Hooded Towel for Toddler ~ FREE Crochet Pattern

Crochet a hooded towel or a cozy baby blanket for the little ones. I chose a cotton yarn for the hooded towel; but if making a blanket, you can basically use any yarn you like.

There is no stitch pattern here, thus making it easy to adjust the size. I made mine extra long and wide to allow for a cozy wrap after the bath. Plus it’ll give the little ones lots of room to grow.

  1. Hello
    I ya e been working on this pattern for the last few weeks and love the way it is coming out. However, I am now to the hood and can not find any instructions on how to do Standing Front Loop Single Crochet. Please advise so I can finish this awesome towel for my soon to be grandson.

    1. Hi Tiffany, Sorry I did not add a border to this, but you most certainly can. :) The easiest way is to single crochet evenly around with 3 sc into each corner so it lays flat. Then where the hood meets the towel, you’d make a single crochet 3 together decrease to prevent bulkiness in that area.
