"Catching Fire" is in theaters now and the second in the trilogy of the "Hunger Games". Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen in the Suzanne Collins novel. Those who saw the movie or the movie trailer and love knitting, will want to knit up the Katniss Cowl.
The original cowl, that Katniss wears in the movie is woven, rather than knit. Lion Brand has a pattern for knitting and one for crocheting the cowl. Then there is another knit pattern by Lollyknits. Which one will be on your needles? These are fashion knits for a new age.
“As a designer, you always imagine a complex and magnetic heroine in your clothes, so seeing Katniss is a surreal experience.” Capital couture collection was designed by costume designer Trish Summerville. Her 16-piece luxury collection is available online at retailer Net-A-Porter.
Make it a point to see the movie. You may get some ideas to design your own cutting edge knit garments.
