A kid’s hooded cowl/capelet that fits 2-6 year olds reminiscent of a hunter’s hooded cape. A stag lace pattern is both knitted on the front as well as the back with cables and ribbing on the sides. The cowl is knit from the bottom up and the main stag lace pattern is repeated four times total.

The Artemis cowl fits a wide range of children’s sizes since the side ribbing is very forgiving. You can knit this up for a wee little one knowing that it will be quite a while before they outgrow it. Plus, it is a great quick cover up without the hassle of a sweater for any kid with a vivid imagination.

The cowl features plenty of design elements and truly has a little bit of everything. From easy garter stitch, to lace and cable patterns, some short row shaping, and two different options for finishing the hood, this fun hunting cowl will keep your eye on the bullseye!

Children’s size: Fits 2-6 year olds
