  • In case you're as desperate to make a knitted cowl to embroider ala Carolyn Bloom, we've created this little "kit" for you!

    The kit includes: 
    • 1 skein each of 100% British non-Superwash Bluefaced Leicester DK weight yarn in Natural (100g) and Deep Indigo (100g). This will give you enough yarn to knit and embellish the cowl.
    • Digital pdf copy of the cowl pattern by Carolyn Bloom.

    Please note that the pattern does not provide instructions on how to embellish the cowl canvas. It is intended to be a blank slate for you to decorate as you please.

    For a closer look at how Carolyn embellished her cowl, check out her instagram feed @bloomhandmadestudio

    The structure and shape of this cowl are a perfect blend of art and practicality. The shape of the piece is that of a lampshade, close enough to the neck and chest to ward off breezes from all directions, but not at all constraining around the shoulders and arms.

    And the simplicity of the underlying straight stockinette makes a perfect canvas for decorations of your choice. The stitches created by the knits and purls are excellent anchors for everything from sashiko-inspired stitches, embroidery, surface crochet and…. more!

    This pattern is written for all sizes, ages, genders and any weight of yarn. Directions are given for taking measurements of the wearer and how to do simple calculations based on gauge to complete the design.

    You will also need:
    4mm (US 6) knitting needles
    Darning needle
    Blocking board (optional)
    Spray bottle (optional)
    Pins (optional)

    Before embroidery:
    5 sts and 8 rows / inch

  • About Carolyn Bloom:

    Carolyn Bloom {briefly}

    I’m a self-proclaimed aficionado of yarn. I love its endless possibilities, the stories it tells, the connections it enables and the creativity it inspires. Through this medium, I have become a knitter, crocheter, designer and a photographer. And a reluctant web developer.
