Who’s there? 

A Spider!

Do you need a fun accessory to wear this Halloween season? Something that looks great with all your spider jokes? I know I do. I have a lot of Halloween-themed puns and it’s nice when my outfit matches my sense of humor. If you are looking to dress the way you feel (happy, a little creepy, weirdly romantic, and just plain awesome), try the Venomous cowl!

Why do spiders spin webs?

Because the can’t knit.

But YOU CAN, so grab your yarn and cast on Venomous!

Worked SEAMLESSLY from the top down, it knits up quickly (like any good cowl should), but wears like a hassle-free shawl. Unlike traditional tube cowls that rumple into a pile of knitting around your neck, this shawl-shaped construction lets your knitting shine by creating a triangular front and shortened back. The shape is wonderful, wearable, and just plain fun to knit.

This Cowl Includes:

  • Top-Down, Seamless Construction
  • Shawl-Shaped Wearability
  • Clear Instructions & Charts
  • Creepy, crawly spiders
