Hunting for Turkeys - Katniss Woven Cowl by Verdaera Hunting for Turkeys - Katniss Woven Cowl by Verdaera
I made this last winter to go with the Katniss Hunting outfit I already had. It is officially dubbed as the "weird thing". I only know the basic knit stitch, and taught myself the basic crochet stitch for part of this. Considering I don't know what I'm doing for yarn/fiber arts I'm really proud I was able to get this piece so accurate.

***PLEASE NOTE: My work is not 'cosplay', it is costuming. Costuming is the art of creating costumes and designing a character look. 'Cosplay' is the activity of role playing while in costume, which not an activity I participate in, and is often confused for costuming.. Please only refer to my work as Costuming. Thank you for your understanding.***

Nope, this is a lace front wig!
I've thought about Anna, haven't had time to make one, though.

You did such a fantastic job on the weird cowl thing.  I really want to make one for myself, since it looks super cozy.  Did you have any kind of pattern or references that helped you out that you're willing to share?

Thank you very much :)

I was going to try and write up a pattern, but I ended up having to free-form it a lot and do a lot of weird weaving to fill in spaces that I just couldn't find a way to describe it. I wrote more about it here in my blog. And yes, it's official name seems to be the "weird thing" :D rebelshaven.blogspot.com/searc…
