A part of the ebook Ghosts: historiographies, cultural manifestations, and the knits they’ve inspired, the Ectoplasm cowl was inspired by the Spiritualist mediums of the Victorian era.

Autumn winds are chased away with the versatility of Ectoplasm. This versatile, cold-weather wardrobe staple was designed to convert from a cowl to a hood in seconds.

Ectoplasm is an easy knit, which features short rows and simple twisted stitch details to add shape and interest to this functional and uniquely fashionable accessory.

Find essays into the topic of ghosts in the ebook - the single pattern does not feature this information!

The finished cowl is 16” tall, 17” long at the widest point and has an opening of 24”.
