THIS IS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE THE PICTURED GARMENT. THIS IS NOT A FINISHED GARMENT. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY YARN.
“Curiosity often leads to trouble…….” muses Alice as she enters the rabbit-hole to Wonderland.
Curiosity also often leads to new shapes, new techniques, and new fun exploring our craft! This cowl is a top down half pi cowlette that conveniently wears like a cowl while styling like a shawl, so it’ll stay in place whether you’re chatting with a Caterpillar, walking through Tulgey Woods, or enjoying a tea party with friends. Enjoy wandering through Wonderland with all of your Knit Dizzney friends (and all other Alice loving crafters too!)
Finished cowlette is 24” in diameter, with a 10” diameter neck opening, and it’s designed to work with both animal fibers and non-animal fibers alike. It also offers a narrow neck and wide neck version to give an extra couple of inches in the opening. Gauge is not important for this pattern, but can affect yardage used and the size of the finished piece.
My husband and I are raising a family of unabashed Disney nerds. Imagine how thrilled I was to be asked to design for Knit Dizzney 2020! So grateful to the three dyers, Dizzy Blonde, Lazer Sheep, and Oink Pigments for the opportunity and yarn support and to my epic testers Anne Blizzard, Brianna Thornton, Gretchen Rhoads, Jennifer Scheil, and Nicole Fields for helping me find and fix the errors.
Not all of my patterns are dedicated to specific people, but in the midst of the conception for this design, a good friend and fellow Disney lover passed away. She was an indie dyer and designer with many Disney inspired colors, and Brianna knit her Curiosity with Tahra’s Captain Hook inspired color. Tahra Loy, you are loved and will be missed by everyone in the yarn community. You embodied many of the characteristics I hold most dear in Alice—her curiosity, her fighting spirit, and her silliness (I miss your memes).
