La Belle et La Bête cowl kit

2 reviews

Celebrate the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast, with a luxurious cowl kit.

The yarn for this kit is front and center: a beautiful cowl-length self-striping set created for us by Must Stash Yarns and debuted at Stitches West 2017. 

The cowl, Tale as Old as Time, takes advantage of one of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to knit with self-striping yarn: stockinette stitch in the round. Enjoy the magic of color changes that happen automatically, encouraging you to knit just one more stripe. While a stockinette tube cowl can easily be knit without a pattern, I've devised several simple strategies to make the finishing work as easy as the knitting, so your kit includes a PDF pattern.

Choose between a simple yarn and pattern kit, or luxuriate in your memories of this romantic tale with a luxe kit.

  • Pattern PDF and Ravelry code

  • Self-striping yarn to knit a full-length (double loop) cowl, as pictured, with two separate 12-stripe sequences

If you would like to add a coordinating project bag or stitch markers, simply choose from our a la carte listings. We will pack and ship everything all together as a "custom" kit.


Your kit will ship by Friday, April 28. We are putting the finishing touches on the project bags and gathering together our packaging, so thanks for your patience as it usually takes us about a week to gear up to ship and assemble a new kit.
