Item details

This listing is for the PATTERN PDF to make the PANEM Cowl and is NOT A FINISHED ITEM.


This listing is for the KNITTING PATTERN to make the PANEM Katniss inspired piece.

This purchase includes the pattern PDF as well as a second short PDF detailing how I did the braids on the body piece to change the look of the cowl.

Cowl in the photos is the EXACT same cowl, but in the photos with the white shirt were taken before I added braids to the body, and the photos in the brown shirt were taken after I added the braids. I love both looks so much, I decided to show them both off and let you choose which you want to make!

For the seasoned knitter, you can probably make this cowl in just a couple of days, novice knitters can probably get it done in about a week :-)

The arm opening can be worn on either side (the front and back are made the same!).

Don't forget to check out my original Katniss Inspired Cowl here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/171595891/pattern-pdf-pattern-for-diy-katniss?ref=shop_home_feat_3)

Or my District 12 pattern here:

I have also created and easy coordinating mitten pattern for either fingerless or full mittens made using the same yarn as most of my cowl patterns:

The PANEM Wrap is probably my closest version of the cowl worn in 'Catching Fire'. As much as I need/want to have my neck covered (hence my first two versions) I just couldn't get away from the chunky, funky coolness of the ropes on the cowl worn by Katniss in the movie.
This version still doesn't have ropes (I found them way too stiff and heavy on the cowls) but it has the same look as the ropes, but with lots of softness and drape.

As with all of my previous patterns, I include photos, instructions and helpful links when needed.

The seaming on this cowl is simple and minimal.

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: knit and purl 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.

BASIC MATERIALS: about 300-450 yards of bulky or super bulky yarn (depending on size made)
size 15

GUAGE: 2.5 sts/ 3 rows = 1" on size 15

You may make items to sell from this pattern, but credit must be given to me in your listing. The pattern specifies the language to be used.

This pattern may not be used to produce this item commercially for sale or for mass production, but rather is to be used by home crafters for limited sales only.

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


PAYPAL is still my preferred method of payment. You can use your credit card through Paypal without even having to sign up for an account, just select Paypal as your payment method, and checkout as a 'guest' once you are redirected to the Paypal website. Paypal offers both Buyer and Seller protection.

If you choose credit card rather than Paypal before you checkout, you will be using the new Etsy checkout system.

Sorry, I no longer take cash, check or money order as payment.
