Fanatical Flower Fiend Bandana/Cowl

I decided it was time I designed a Cowl. I decided to use the flower I designed from my Clematis Shawl and turn it into a Cowl.

The results are just amazing and I am extremely pleased with the outcome.

I used Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball for the proto-type and feel this yarn is very suited to this design. Find Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball (click here)

The pattern is available in Uk and Us terms and comes in two sizes. Find it on Ravelry (click here), Etsy (click here) and Lovecrafts (click here).


5mm/H hook

1 x Lion Brand shawl in a cake. Pastel Unique Unicorn 481yd/440m per ball.  Total used for 26-inch/66cm approx. 400yd/365m. Total used for 29-inch/73.6cm approx 460yd/420m

This pattern works up very quickly, which is a great bonus if maybe you want to whip something up as a gift for someone. It only uses the one ball of Lion Brand Shawl in a cake.

The process to get this pattern ready to publish is a rather lengthy one! I wish I was perfect but I am not! I make errors or what I like to call ‘Boo, Boo’s’. I have amassed a great pattern test team over time and I really make them work hard!

My testers are overworked (I work them 24 hours a day, or it seems that way as they are from all over the world, so at least one of them is working at any given time), they are underpaid (I don’t pay them at all. They get access to my latest design and a final copy once completed). Even with these tough working conditions, they seem to keep lining up to test for me! I appreciate their efforts to get my patterns ready to publish, as without them they would really be a real mess!

You will notice in my patterns that the last page is always dedicated to thanking these hard working, underpaid heroes. I know some people don’t like extra pages to a pattern, but to me it is very important to give credit where it is due.
