This months freebie pattern is something i desperately needed. For some reason, no clue why, it suddenly became so cold. It might have something to do with it being almost November. I desperately needed something to keep me warm. I have previously made one of those long rectangle cowls but I seriously dont know how its supposed to go on. It always ends up feeling weird. So I made this awesome cozy cowl and knew it would be perfect to share with you now that November is here.
The pattern comes in both A4/letter and A3 (A3 is just a single page!). The instructions are available in both English and Norwegian. Download the pattern for free here. I have also made a video that is available via my Youtube Channel.
For this project you need two fabrics, preferably one thick and cozy fabric for the lining. For the feathered one I used flannel for the outside and fleece on the inside with two buttons. For the grey one, both the fabrics I used were sweatshirt fabric with one button.
Start but cutting out 2 pattern pieces, one in the main fabric and one linings. A seam allowance of 1 cm / 3/8” is included. You can either use a regular sewing machine and overlock/serge.
The cross is where your button/buttonhole will be, this is just a guide and you can add if where you feel most comfortable. If needed add interfacing where you want your button and buttonhole to be.
Place this lining and the outer fabrics right sides together. Sew around the edge leaving a turn hole that is about 5 cm / 2 inch wide.
Turn the cowl right side out. Sew the hole shut by hand, such as with an invisible ladder stitch. Sew a seam 1 cm from the egde of the cowl all the way around.
Add a closure of your choice. Use either the pattern as a guide or where you find it most comfortable.
