My son is on the committee of his University  Archery club.  At the beginning of the year they had a kind of fair for all the new first years to see what clubs are available. For the Archery club some of the members manning the stall wanted to dress up a bit and I offered to knit an asymmetric cowl like the one from the Hunger Games film.
I had to make up the pattern (and guess at the sizing since I didn't know who was going to wear it) I couldn't find any large gauge circular needles in my local shops but, inspired by this craftster tutorial, I got my son to make me a pair.

It all worked out in the end and I also learned a new stitch Herringbone stitch which is very attractive.

This is the young lady who dressed up as the character from the Hunger Games.


And this my circular 13 mm(-ish) needle.

I started writing the pattern down as I was going along but find I have forgotten one or two  things so I'll work on those and try and get a pattern up here later.

Okay. I have added the pattern as a pdf file attachment. I realise that this means only Craftster members can see it or download it but it is really  much too long to put in this post as it also has several pictures to illustrate things.

Thank you very much . A most interesting project for me.
I was also delighted to discover how easy it is to make ones own circular needles.

Thank you. If you do try something like this you are welcome to ask me about it.  If you use my pattern there may be things in it that are not clear.

I'm very interested in making the asymmetrical sweater. I'm new to Craftster and am having a hard time finding pdf for directions. Can you be of assistance?
