Catching Fire :: Katniss Cowl Patterns

Posted by in Craft Quite a Long While Ago…


I’m a total bibliophile. And young adult fantasy/sci-fi is my fav. Has been since before Harry left Hogwarts.

Naturally, I read Hunger Games and DEVOURED Catching Fire when it was first released. It’s my fav book of the trilogy, so I was one of the first in line (okay fifth in line thanks to my friend Jer) to see the movie Thursday night. And I *might* have gone again to see it Sunday.

And like most knitters and hookers (you crazy crochet kids, you), I lusted after Katniss’s knitwear which was made by a crochet artist who doesn’t believe in patterns (fie!). I’m particularly in love with the cowl she wears in the opening sequence. So I did some digging and found several great patterns for DIY versions. Thank you, internet!

Whatever your choice, enjoy, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

    […] … aber egal. Bei bestem T-Shirt-Wetter, zumindest in der Sonne, habe ich endlich einen dicken, warmen Schal mit einer besonderen Geschichte fertiggestellt. Beim vorletzen Stammtisch im Walfisch hatte mich eine der Kreativen gefragt, ob ich den zweiten Teil der Tribute von Panem schon gesehen hätte. Denn in einer Szene trüge Katniss, die Hauptfigur, einen tollen Schal … Da ich zu dem Zeitpunkt lediglich das Buch gelesen hatte, habe ich daheim nach entsprechenden Bildern im Internet gesucht. Dort hatte sich der Katniss Cowl schon zu einem festen Begriff etabliert, siehe zum Beispiel hier. […]
