The cowl worn by Jennifer Lawrence in the movie Catching Fire, is one of the hottest patterns crochet and knitting artists are looking for this winter. The one worn in the movie is woven. Maria Dora designed it and at first, she said that it would not be for sale. However, a post to Instagram on Dec. 3, 2013 seems to change this. A website to take pre-order of this cowl is pending. While the original is not yet available, plenty of talented artists are selling their versions of the cowl on Etsy. If you are overwhelmed with holiday projects or just want to purchase one instead of creating it yourself then check out these shops for a custom made Katniss cowl.
This cowl is the closest to what Jennifer Lawrence wore as Katniss Everdeen. If you are looking for something that is almost identical to what Lawrence wore in the movie, this is the cowl for you. The only thing that would be closer would be to wait for Maria Dora to open up pre-orders for her cowl. There is a 6-8 week wait but this is a custom made order. Asking price is $130.00
A cowl shawl inspired by the Katniss cowl. Handmade for you. It is fairly close to the one worn by Jennifer Lawrence. The price is $160.00
Although this cowl is not identical to the original, it is still very cute and when you wear it everyone will know where the inspiration came from. Christmas orders are not being accepted at this time. Price is $115.00
The Huntress shawl is a moderately priced version of the Katniss cowl. Most of the other versions of the District 12 cowl sell for over $100. This one has a moderate price tag of $79. Delivery time is early Feb. 2014. You could wait for Maria Dora, but it most likely will cost more than this one.
The Katniss Everdeen inspired cowl wrap is priced at $65. Shown in a medium green, this one is very different from the others. It is more symmetrical through the yoke and chest. This gives it a tailored look that the others and the original lack. However, the ties to Catching Fire are there. No one will say that you are wearing a movie knock-off in this cowl. For those looking to make their own fashion statement, this might be the cowl for you.
Stylish Knitting has a cowl for sale that is based on the one in the movie. If you are looking for a more armored, edgy look, this is the cowl for you. This will set you back $149.
The Never Ending Sea is another place to get a Katniss inspired cowl. Right now, there is a backlog on orders, so you will not be able to get one by Christmas. It is available for $155.
EsteraP accepts custom orders for her version of the Katniss cowl. It is made from a combination of acrylic and other fibers. She has a total of three different cowls available. They range in price from $180 to $280 each.
