Katniss Inspired Huntress Cowl Crochet Vest

My daughter watched Catching Fire ( Second film of the Hunger Games) I just love the cowl Katniss wears in this film. This inspired me to have a hunt on the internet for a pattern for something similar. I found this The yarn I used was cheap and a bit too 'floppy'. I also followed the larger size. So next time better quality yarn and follow the smaller pattern. The pattern is really well written and easy to follow. It only took me a couple of hours to make. I think it needs to be worn over a coat.

Crochet Festival Shawl

Loving this shawl, the pattern can be found HERE It was a great patten to follow. I used
James C Brett Monsoon Aran Yarn S7 using a 5mm hook. I don't think I will wear it in a traditional shawl fashion, I will wear it more like scarf.
