"The inspiration behind this pattern was Amy Johnson, a pioneering English aviatrix. Amy set many flight records in the 1930s, and rose to the ranks of First Officer in the Air Transport Auxiliary during World War II. She died in a crash in 1941 under disputed circumstances during a mission and her body was never recovered. There is a very iconic photo of Amy with a scrumptious collar so I wanted to create a hooded cowl that could keep you extra warm. (You can find more great pictures on my Amy Johnson Pinterest board.) The post stitch pattern creates upturned arrows that mimic the flying geese quilting pattern. The bulky yarn adds an extra layer of protection against harsh winds. Skills Used Basic crochet stitches: chain, single crochet, triple crochet, slip stitch Crocheting in the round Post stitch clusters (FPtr4tog and FPtr8tog, with written explanation in pattern) Skill Level Intermediate Finished Size 23” (58 cm) circumference x 22” (56 cm) tall. Materials Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky (100% wool, 3.5 oz/100 g, 120 yd/110 m) – 4 skeins Thyme, or approximately 480 yd (439 m) in any bulky weight yarn. US L-11/8 mm crochet hook, or any size needed to obtain gauge. Yarn needle. Gauge 11 sts in pattern = 4” (10 cm). Exact gauge is not critical for this project."
