Item details

This listing is for the PATTERN PDF to make the Huntress Vest and is NOT A FINISHED ITEM.


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

This vest showcases the same style herringbone stitch that I used for my original version of the Katniss Cowl (inspired by the one seen on the character of ‘Katniss’ in Catching Fire)

The whole time I was writing the pattern, and even knitting the many cowls that I sold, I constantly had ideas running through my head of other things that the stitch could be used for.

So, while Katniss never wore a vest like this in the movie, it is most definitely inspired by that character, and the cowl she wore in the movie. I can even picture her wearing it. It’s rustic, it’s strong and it would be fabulous layered in many different ways for the cold winters in District 12.
This pattern contains instructions for making the vest in 2 basic sizes S/M and L/XL. The sizing on this vest is very forgiving as the laces on the sides and neck allow you to adjust it to fit over larger bust or even over a winter coat.

Don't forget to check out my original Katniss Inspired Cowl here:

Or my District 12 pattern here:

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

The finishing on this vest 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 2 sizes: 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 due to the leather cording at the sides and neck.

BASIC MATERIALS: about 200-250 yards of bulky or super bulky yarn (depending on size made)
US size 13 and size 17 needles.

GUAGE: about 2.5 sts/ 3 rows = 1" on size 13

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.

Digital downloads
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.
