Hydra Cowl



This cowl-shawl hybrid is knit with fingering weight yarn and is a great way to show off a precious sock yarn. The lacey pattern is pretty and easy to memorize. It’s as practical as it is gorgeous and will quickly become a favourite!

This cowl is knit in one piece from the bottom to the top with a simply crocheted fringe worked in a contrasting colour. It buttons at the sides to ensure it doesn’t slip down and keeps you nice and warm. This shawl has one size.


This is a 6-page PDF pattern, $5 USD
The pattern is emailed to you within 24 hours of payment.
