Hattie Models the Leafy Cowl


I have been waiting on tenterhooks for the photographs of Hattie wearing the adult version of the leafy cowl. Aren't these pictures of her stunning. (I think I am allowed to say that as I didn't take them, but her father, one of my neighbours, did!)


I decided to go for autumn colours. Not very seasonal for us in Britain, but it is always autumn somewhere in the world. I hope the photos show how cosy and versatile the adult version of my cowl pattern is. The pattern is slightly deeper in the neck, broader across the shoulders, and the leaves are bigger than the child's pattern.

Patterns for both cowls are now available on ravelry or Craftsy.
 


And I have put both this cowl and my children's green cowl for sale in my Etsy shop if you would like one readymade. They are both knitted from Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran, although other similar Aran or 10ply wool would work well.
