Pattern ERRATA - On page 7, the instructions following row 47 and row 48 are incorrect and should read to REPEAT ROWS 47-48
Corrections are now reflected in the pattern available to download.
I have also added another version to download that has darker text. I wrote the original with lighter text color to use a bit less ink when printing, but it was brought to my attention that the lighter text combined with the font style made it harder to read for some people. Now you can choose which you prefer :-)

This is my second (technically 3rd) version of the Katniss Cowl worn in the movie Catching Fire.

For this one, the body is less structured, the cowl is a bit wider and lower than the original, and this newest version has a wide band that goes across one arm. There are also more woven braids on this version.

The finishing process is just as important to me as the knitting, and I have also included the tips I have for making the finishing of your garment just a lovely as the knitting :-)

GENERAL SKILLS NEEDED: knitting, purling, knitting in the round, picking up and knitting stitches, increasing and decreasing.
I think this pattern is suitable for many skill levels, including an adventurous newby knitter.

Pattern written to make 5 sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL and also gives directions to customize the fit to your own measurements, although the fit of this garment is not super important and one size will fit many body sizes and types with no adjusting.
