Hi. My name is Beth and I have an obsessive personality. Most recently I found myself obsessed with the cowl/scarf/vest thing that Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss wears in the opening scenes of Catching Fire. So what does one with an obsessive personality do? Find a Katniss Inspired Cowl to knit (this one by Dahlia in Bloom, she also has the pattern for sale on etsy). And I knit one (I used Lion Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Oatmeal, readily available at Joann’s). Not only did I knit it, I completed it before my birthday on Tuesday. Fangirl confession? I wore it to see Catching Fire, on my birthday.

One of my neighbors happens to be an archery instructor (and he knows the woman who taught Jennifer Lawrence how to shoot – too cool), so you know, I asked to borrow a bow to pose with. Because once you have taken things this far… You have to take it all the way.

Next up, archery training.

(And sorry to my friends that are fangirls like me – I cannot knit one for you. I would have to charge you $300 just to pay myself fairly… But I will give knitting lessons… Just saying. ;) )

    So amazing!
    What brand wool did you use and what color?

    Awesome cowl – I’m going to have to knit one! May I ask what yarn you used? Was it the recommended Thick & Quick from the pattern? If so – what color is that?

    I guess it would have helped to state that in my post! Yes, I used the Lion Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Oatmeal – bought it with a coupon from JoAnn’s. It was very easy to work with although it did shed quite a bit as I was working with it. That brand had a couple of nice neutral but textural colors that I think would work well with the cowl. Good luck and have fun knitting one for yourself!
