The Katniss Cowl Coincidence

Can you believe our best selling Huntress Cowl was actually just a coincidence? It’s true!

Here’s the story. It was early November 2013 and my mother-in-law had graciously volunteered to watch our daughter for a few days so my hubby and I could spend some much needed alone time together.

We put on our finest, hit the town, and partied all night! Just kidding – we sat on the couch, sipped wine, and binged watch Netflix – it was glorious. One night as we were on our sixth episode of Sherlock I decided to knit myself something for once. Am I the only knitter that never knits anything for themselves? What’s up with that?

I had gotten this beautiful pewter yarn at Michaels and was eager to work with it. I whipped up the first huntress cowl in two nights, all the while noting the pattern in my pink psychedelic notebook (you know the kind where you look at it and it looks like it’s spinning – yeah – that’s where I keep all the goods).

I wore it back to Virginia to pick up my daughter. While we were there we stopped to see my grandfather-in-law. He was just the sweetest. He told me he thought the scarf was beautiful. When we got back I thought – hey why not – I’ll list it and make reproductions and see what happens. I called it The Silver Fox.

A week or two went by – and no one ordered one. Then it all changed. My girlfriend mentioned this little movie called The Hunger Games (you may have heard of it). She was raving about it so I checked it out. When I saw Katniss’ knit cowl I thought to myself – I think I could wrap my Silver Fox Cowl to look like that… I tried it and – Voila! It worked! It didn’t look exactly the same – but it gave you the same feeling – and it was versatile!

Fast forward and now it’s one of our best sellers, and my original pattern for The Silver Fox turned Huntress Cowl is number one in our shop!

So that’s the back story my friends! That cowl has been such a blessing to us – and to think it was all coincidence…although I have a feeling God had a hand in this one. That pattern came to me so quickly and easily – I think I’ll give the credit to Him  🙂
