Finishing the Katniss Cowl-Thing
UPDATE 2/1/23: If you're here then what you probably want is actually the finished version of this pattern, which is here. I don't know why I didn't update this to include a new link to the finished version after I did the completed post lol
Listen, go to my Ko-Fi and also visit my Etsy shop. Buy things. Give me money so that I can keep doing things for free. If I have to get a real job then that means there will be no free patterns because real jobs make me crippling depressed and I have no time to do things I enjoy. When I do have time to do things I enjoy, all of the happiness has been sucked out of me and I do not have the energy to do things I enjoy.
I wrapped up the the Katniss cowl commission this weekend. It turned out to be less work than I'd anticipated in my previous post and I'm pretty excited about it. I almost want to make one for myself to wear around for laughs. It's comfortable and also seems to be durable. I tested it thoroughly by wearing it to jump around on things. It's for Dragon*Con so it needed to be able to withstand any Poop Lion climbing.
See all of the posts here, here and here. In a few days I'm going to go back and flesh out the pattern and post it here in a coherent single post.
Next I made a final panel. This one wrapped all the way around from the left shoulder to the middle of the back, going under the right arm. I just used a slightly modified bulky cable stitch and made the strip 28". I stitched it on accordingly and allowed it to curl a bit under itself to create a very nice, finished looking edge.

Repeat from * until 28" in length
