MEASUREMENTS  8” wide x 31” circumference (20 x 79 cm)


This project uses individual hexagons woven on a hexagon loom that are later sewn together.  

The solid color hexagons use a single strand of yarn and the two-color one uses two strands (one of each color) held together.

On the design schematic below, the single color half hexagons are made by folding a hexagon in half along the center line.  It creates a double thickness that matches the weight of the two-color hexagons.

Weave the following number of hexagons following the tutorial video:

Color A: 3 hexagons

Color B: 3 hexagons

Color C: 6 hexagons using Colors A & B held together

(To make the cowl longer, make an additional 1 Color A, 1 Color B and 2 Color C hexagons.  This will add about 10 ⅜” to your cowl.)

Weave in ends or use them for seaming your hexagons.

Arrange your hexagons according to the diagram below.  Make sure that your hexagons are all aligned the same way.  Your weave should line up straight across the cowl, not diagonally.

Using a tapestry needle sew all hexagons together as shown above.  Then align the right and left edges and sew them together.

NOTE: The hexagons for Colors A & B are folded in half so make sure to seam through both layers.
