Item details

It is a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY, not the actual cowl, so that you can make the item yourself with your own choice of yarn and color.

NOTE: Patterns are a final sale, due to their digital nature they cannot be returned or refunded.

This pattern is available in ENGLISH and RUSSIAN (you will get 2 PDF files when buying the pattern).


This easy vest, featuring boxy drop-shoulder styling is a one-piece design and knit continuously from back hem to front hem with no shaping and only two side seams. The drape of the lofty brioche rib, together with an interesting construction, create the beautiful curved shoulder line naturally. The comfortable slit neck opening is trimmed with a rolled edge and folds over like a shawl collar.

There is something wrong with the instructions. I get as far as the third row and then the pattern does not work out.

After ripping this out 4 times, I gave up. The instructions just weren't working for me and when I googled video instructions, they didn't work either. Dang, such a cute sweater!
