We can’t get enough of this luxurious silk velvet, and want to wrap ourselves up in it all autumn and winter. We decided to make that dream happen for us and for you, too, by putting together a sweet little pattern for a silk velvet cowl.
This simple pattern is a great introduction to sewing with finicky velvet, and includes tips for a successful project.
For our sample, we have paired highly coveted silk velvet on one side, with a tonally-matching raw silk noil on the other. The cowl is generous and luxurious, wrapping twice around to make a cozy, winter neck accessory. A perfect quick yet fancy handmade gift for a loved one, or a treat for yourself! Purchase one of our new kits, or feel free to experiment with different fabrics—maybe a cozy wool or a soft french terry paired with some silky lawns? Whatever you choose, your Luxe Cowl will be a warm hug during cooler weather.
