Zoo Adventure Cowl

July 2015
Any gauge - designed for any gauge ?
150 - 400 yards (137 - 366 m)
any size (in any weight yarn)

This Choose Your Own Adventure inspired pattern collection offers lots of stitch pattern options (31!), which can be used with any of the items, tons of different ways to knit your piece - you can make hundreds of totally different objects between all the different choices!

The standard cowl is just a rectangle shape, or if made on the bias then it’s a parallelogram shape. So it can be made any height you want, any length you want, and it can be joined around or left open to be a scarf or stole/wrap instead of a cowl! Seam it up into a permanent cowl, or use buttons for closure so it can be worn either way.

This was a knit-a-long in summer 2015; check out the leethal knitters! group for knit-a-long posts, to see the adventurous items that everyone made!

The ebook includes normal pages plus DIY foldable, bindable, covered print book pages, to make your complete pattern collection into a book like this.

  • all items are worked flat

  • some items and pattern options are more complex than others, so difficulty ranges adventurous beginner to experienced intermediate - you’ll be able to look at an option and see if it seems doable, choosing the options that look best to you
