A friend at work challenged me to make a Hunger Games inspired knit vest. I love being asked to make new things, so I happily accepted.
I’m super pleased the end result was less Katniss-the-archer and more sexy-Jennifer-Lawrence. Mine is less appropriate for hunting, and more suitable as a wear-to-work or for a night on the town.
Rather than making a literal interpretation of the Katniss cowl, I made a more fitted, flattering scarf/vest. Where many other knitters are interpreting Kaniss’ armor as a chunky piece of outerwear, I decided to turn it into everyday knitwear. This is a fun piece you can layer like a pullover sweater or cardigan—and add instant edge to any outfit. Love!
I got an Etsy site up and running! If you want to be archer-chic, you can purchase your own sexy Katniss cowl here.
I made this vest from an original crocheted pattern that’s not for sale. It’s made of a wool/acrylic blend.
