Have you ever found yourself in a situation, where you wanted to wear a hat in one moment, and the next moment you needed to take it off, but then where should you put it? You are commuting for example, and waiting for the train can be a drafty piece of drag, but on the train everything is so jam-packed, that you don’t want to even think of trying to put your hat into your bag. Then you need a Cowlie. It keeps you snug and warm, and as soon as you step into a warmer environment, you just push back the hood.

Or you ride on a bike and suddenly it gets warmer than you think. No problem with the Cowlie, plus you won’t have to worry about dangling scarf ends as well. Airplanes are also very drafty, and the Cowlie can provide you even with a little sense of privacy.

This pattern can be applied to every yarn weight and every seize. It is suitable for ever gender and every age. Especially practical for kids, who often tend to lose their scarfs and hats. No big deal with the Cowlie, as the collar cannot fall off and the hood is attached to it.

You will find everything you need to knit your perfect version:

  • charts
  • photo tutorials
  • written instructions
  • graphics
  • an easy to calculate recipe for all sizes and yarn weights.

This pattern includes three different versions, which are all knitted in one piece. No seaming is necessary, even the two colored versions are seamless knits. It is fairly easy to understand for the beginner and allows enough variations for the advanced knitter.

So jump in and have fun.
