The hunting vest or shield Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) wore in the new Hunger Games film "Catching Fire" has literally caught fire with knitting and crochet designers. Originally a woven creation, the newly written cowl patterns are for crochet, knitting, or a mix of both. The huntress' piece was designed for the movie by Maria Dora according to onscreenstyle.com and handwoven, not knitted or crocheted, to fit Katniss' hunting requirements. Call it a scarf, a cowl, or a cape, it is a hot pattern for crafters. Check out the slideshow for all the new patterns.
Tavel calls her cowl pattern "...comfortable and functional without extra bulk. Slip it over a jacket and go take on the world!"
