On the first of May this year my May Cowl pattern was released in store by BaaRamEwe, the fantastic yarn shop located in Leeds. I was commissioned to design this cowl last year and it is great to see the pattern on sale.
Originally designed to show case 'Shades of Chevin' - a result of mixing their gorgeous titus yarn with the colour guru that is the Knitting Goddess, each month a new pattern and a new Titus Goddess colourway was released and mine was May.
May cowl is a very versatile accessory, designed to be worn round the neck as a cowl, over the shoulders like a capelet or as a scarf or wrap.
The stitch pattern was inspired by a 1967 doily pattern I found in a Learn to Crochet booklet that belonged to my Nan. I liked the open work combined with solid stripes of the same pattern.
This is a very easy crochet pattern with only a few stitches to learn.
May Cowl has been reissued in the Chevin shade of Titus (which is lovely to crochet with) by BaaRamEwe and it is now available on Ravelry and also in their new booklet, Titus Mini Knits.
It is now available on Ravelry to download for £3.00 and for the next week only with 25% off the usual price with the code VERSATILE
To show just how versatile this cowl is, I had a photoshoot with my sister who is a good sport and kindly modelled the cowl in many of the ways it can be worn.... watch out for the Shades of Grey shot!
