Haruka Mekakucity Actors Crochet Cowl Tutorial

This is how I crochet Haruka's cowl from the anime Mekakucity Actors.


I used worsted weight cotton yarn for drape. For the main cowl, I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook, and to make the arrows I used a 4.5mm hook.

For Cowl Body:

1) Chain 22. skip first chain and hdc into every chain for 21 hdc.
2) Chain one and turn. hdc until end. (21 sts)

repeat row 2 until cowl can wrap around neck to desired thickness.


3) sew ends together to create a tube.

Crochet Arrows: (make two)

1) chain two
2) skip chain and sc 3 times into second chain from hook (3 sts)
3) chain 1 and turn. skip chain, sc 2 times into first st, 1 sc, sc 2 times into last st. (5 sts)
4) chain 1 and turn. skip chain, sc 2 times into first st, 3 sc, sc 2 times into last st. (7 sts)
5) chain 1 and turn. skip chain, 7 sc. (7 sts)
6) chain 1 and turn. skip chain, 7sc (7sts)
7) chain 1 and turn. skip chain, sc 2 times into first st, 5 sc, sc 2 times into last st. (9 sts)
8) chain 1 and turn, skip chain, 9 sc. (9 sts)
9) cut yarn pull through. it should look like this:


Now we will make the shaft for the arrow. In third stitch from edge (does not matter what edge you start from) pull up a loop.

1) 3 sc. chain one and turn

repeat row one 8 times.


Sew arrow to cowl, one on each side. Done!
