ZigZag Cowl Test Knit

This is a test knit I very recently completed for the lovely Faye, a very talented British knitter, designer and blogger.  The pattern will be available through Erika Knight at some point in the future.  There will be a link on Faye’s blog, Buttons and Beeswax, and on Ravelry when it is finally released.

It was a fun and easy project, but the result is a luxurious and warm cowl!


Pattern: ZigZag Cowl*
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, Straw-Gold
 US 7 / 4.5 mm

*I’ll update the link to the actual pattern page on Ravelry once it’s available.



It’s a very versatile design and can be used as a hood, which is particularly useful for those of us who live in places where winter likes to make a very definite appearance!


Faye has previously designed a matching hat which is already available for purchase.  You can see some great photos of it on her blog here: ZigZag Hat.

Thank you Faye for another great design, and for letting me test it out for you!

  1. And here you are wearing blue hahahha
    I love that you can just throw it up like a hood. It will definitely get a lot of use in the winter!

  2. Wow, thanks! It was great having you test for me 🙂 I’m not sure of the actual pattern release date yet as this one is actually going to be available through Erika Knight and not myself. There will be a link on my blog and on Ravelry as soon as I have any more information though!

    Thanks again
    Faye 🙂

  3. That’s a nice cowl! It looks really warm and snuggly, perfect for the Canadian winters I have to endure! Suffice to say I think I might have to knit one for myself!

  4. Ohhhh, I love the cowl! Can’t wait for the pattern to be available. Thanks for sharing this. 🙂
