boogy cowl

Posted on Posted in Bare Naked Wools, patterns


need a very quick last minute gift? ready for a project with some color changes?


the boogy cowl can be knit any way, whether you prefer an organized pattern of stripes, something random and fun to use up bits of leftovers, or a solid color for more textural impact.


our shorter version is knit in narrow stripes that repeat as a group; striping will emphasize the undulating movement created by increases and decreases in the openwork. in a longer version you’ll double the effect—bigger impact when worn long and loose or a pile of stripey goodness when wrapped twice.


i knit mine very quickly so we could could get this last minute pattern out to you, but now that we have it, we’re planning more samples in our favorite neutrals


like gradient shades of cozy better breakfast DK or confection sport and a mix of every shade of luxe chebris or cabécou sport. i can’t decide between BBK and chebris sport for my own . . .


needless to say, this would make an excellent lat minute gift—not only is it useful and pretty, but so fun to knit; if you have to put your nose to grindstone to crank something out, it should at least be loads of fun!


shown above, the medium size cowl in bare naked wools festivus 2.0, in colors (light to dark) fezziwig, christmas present, cratchit, and scrooge. Festivus 2.0 is an overdye of our confection sport, a 3-ply yarn spun from 100% soft corriedale wool raised in upstate new york.


click here to purchase or to view complete pattern details—as with the slow dog noodle scarf/wrap pattern, this particular listing is a little different—thanks to david’s hard work today, there’s a dropdown menu so you can choose your purchase price, from $6 and up (we’ve added options for those who would like to give more).

from now through december 31st, 100 percent of every single boogy cowl pattern sale (plus extra donations) will be added to the red scarf scholarship fund!! as of yesterday our fund was up to $2940—so awesome! thanks to your generosity we are on track to surpass last year’s goal and do our part to keep up with the rising cost of education.


purchasing is as easy as any other pattern on our site; it just requires that tiny extra step of using the pulldown menu. the pattern is also available on ravelry, however, we cannot set up the extra donation option there. if you’d like to make an extra donation, we ask that you purchase here and request for us to send it to you in ravelry (your download will be immediately available here; it may take a little while for us to process the rav thing. we appreciate your patience!).


thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic participation in this even year after year. it means so much to us, but be assured it means even more to our student recipient.


speaking of students, isn’t helena looking wonderful these days?? she is currently finishing up her waldorf early childhood education certificate and working in several children’s programs around town. she is also interning with a design studio downtown and working with us a photo stylist. thank you so much helena for taking some time to model our latest release!

  1. Helena is lovely and that cowl is fantastic! I’ll be making a purchase…or three to give to knitting friends on Christmas day! My yarn is waiting for me at home and I am off all next week, perfect timing. Anne, I wish you, David and team Knitspot Happy Holidays!

  2. Both patterns are so awesome! I want to make both! And I got my fabulous yarn yesterday! I love, love, love the colors! Wish I could get more of that wonderful red.

  3. I am so happy this came out. I ordered more Festivus today. Now, I’ll be able to knit the wrap of Slow Dog Noodle and a medium Boogy!

    Happy Holidays!
