The Huntress Cowl..

I am a huge huge Hunger Games fan. And Jennifer Lawrence fan. Read all the books prior to it becoming a movie and am still crazy about it. (FYI everyone needs to read the Divergent series as well as The Fault In Our Stars before they come out as movies this year... DFTBA!) So when I saw the latest Catching Fire I immediately fell in love with Katniss's knitted cowl/shawl one shoulder attire.

This one.. to those who haven't seen it yet -__-

I found this free pattern on Ravelry and knitted away! Geez I love Ravelry. I followed this pattern mostly.. adjusted for my broad shoulders though. It did take awhile for me to learn the herringbone stitch but YouTube saved the day! Thanks guys. And here is the finished piece :)

Not exactly the same but close enough for me!! I love love it. It's too bad its too warm here in southern california for me to actually wear it about.
