CAMILLE HOODED COWL || NEW PATTERN!!

CAMILLE COWL PATTERN  ||  BUY NOW
it gets pretty darn windy where i live.  wind storms blow regularly and i swear it chills me to the bone.  it also rains a lot so being a coastal gal we dress in layers and we love our accessories.  since my oldest started kindergarten i do a lot of standing around outside for pick up and drop off.  most of the time i curse the fact that i don't have a hood.  sometimes i like to wear my fave leather jacket with a yummy cowl and then wouldn't you know it - bye bye sun, hello rain.  there goes mommas hair.  being a bit of a scattered mom at times (aren't we all here and there) i never seem to have an umbrella and i found myself longing for a hooded cowl.  it would solve all my issues.  be quick to make, suit many different weights of yarn, be warm, squishy and look great with all my layers :)  best of all it keeps my hair in tact and my ears toasty.  bring it on mother nature.


knit up in delicious madelinetosh chunky yarn in colorway tern (love) on a big needle this is a quick 1-2 kind of evening project. camille is a cozy & oh so comfy hooded double wrap infinity cowl knit in a lofty oblique rib pattern with warm chunky yarn.  it also would look equally lovely in a super bulky, aran, or worsted.  quick to knit, with a fun construction this cowl involves no picking up of stitches. camille is knit in the round and knit flat with a simple seamed hood.


the camille cowl pattern features:

:: clear and easy to understand step by step instructions

:: bright & colorful photography

:: 2 page color PDF pattern

:: digitally drafted diagram

::  a great knitting experience

the camille cowl pattern is available for purchase at the following:

 
one of my fave features of camille is that you never get cold back neck syndrome.  with the hood feature and the double wrap cowl your neck is always fully covered no matter if the hood is down or up.  i always get that draft between my cowl and top and this cowl keeps me nice and toasty.  the pattern is easy to memorize and is a fun project to pop in your purse and carry with you.  it also makes a wonderful gift because it's a) awesome b) fast to knit up and c) a great project to splurge on some dream yarn without breaking the bank.  i can see many more camille's in my future.  i already have 2 and plan on making at least 1 or 2 more this year.

named after my sister camille who loves a hood as much as i do (which is a lot). we just love to curl up all cozy with a nice warm hood. camille is also a good project for an experienced beginner who is looking to take on a project that's more difficult than a basic cowl but also still fun for an advanced knitter to whip up with some dream yarn.

i hope you all enjoy making and wearing this fun, squishy cowl as much as i do.  happy knitting from my home to yours!

i'd love to hear your thoughts! what do you think? have you worn a hooded cowl before?  let's chat yummy knits ladies!  

p.s. thanks in advance to the lovely jane richmond for modeling for me! luv ya hun!

  9. That cowl looks amazing and I have been thinking about making myself something special now that I finished all my gifts for others. I don't like hoods on coats but I think this cowl would be just the right thing for our windy winter and spring. Your pal Jane looks great in it too; she's so pretty. Gonna go buy the pattern now. Thanks.

  23. Hi! I purchased your pattern and I'm on the first part (making the cowl). I'm super confused and my join looks terrible. I was wondering if you could help me? It gets all screwed up when I switch from RS to WS and doesn't stay connected and then skips and makes a big hole so that whole part where it is joined especially after 7 rows looks just awful. Otherwise the ribbing looks really great and I can't wait to do the hood part, but I'm wondering if I'm missing something in the instructions as I'm a fairly new knitter. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Kathleen,

      You might find this video helpful:

      http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/circular-needle

      It shows you how to join to knit in the round. I'm guessing that's what your issue is. I recommend this websites videos for lots of helpful tips and techniques. Hope that helps. If you have any further questions please email me at luvinthemommyhood@yahoo.ca

      Happy knitting!

    2. Hi! Thanks for the video, but I did join that way. So, the first part-you join and then knit so you are on the right side. Then your next instructions say to knit on the wrong side so I flipped the whole thing over and knit. That is where I'm having the issue because then my working yarn is in my left hand and when you knit into the first stitch it leaves a gap almost like you aren't joined anymore-it is really awkward. Should I just continue to knit on the RS through the next three steps? I did try that and ripped it out the first time and now I'm on the seventh repeat. It almost looks like yarn overs at the join.
      Thanks so much-sorry to be so confused!
      -Kathleen
