Window Shopping in Soho Complete Kit with JUL Closures

Everything you need to make this stunning neck piece.

(1316C-KT-C)

This cowl design was inspired by a scarf I saw in a shop window in New York. I have taken many liberties with the design I saw, of course, and completly Nonified it. It is a unique cowl that, when wrapped around your neck twice, snuggles close and keeps out the brisk winds. Alternatively, leave it unwrapped on balmier days and nights: it wears like an art piece you picked up in a shop in, well, Soho, one that specializes in all things fine and beautiful.

Offered in our exquisite bulky, the drape is a pleasure and, because it is worked on large needles, you'll be able to make 1 in a weekend (maybe a night!). A beautiful cowl. A beautiful gift. A treasure for yourself.

The complete kit to make this beautiful cowl includes the following:

1 Window Shopping in Soho pattern in pdf form
2 skeins of Noni Luxurious Bulky yarn
2 JUL sew-in Gate closures in Pebble Black
1 Noni label
1 Velvet Noni Project Bag

See additional details below for difficulty level, finished dimensions, gauge, and a list of materials necessary to complete this project.

  • Sew-in Gate closure in pebble black.

    This JUL leather hinge is wide and simple, adding drama to any garment or accessory on which it is placed.  Though this and other JUL screw-in closures were originally designed for knitwear, they may be applied to any garment to which one wants to add a snap closure and an exciting and unique fashion statement.  

    This version of Gate Hinge is 'sewn' onto bulky-weight garments and accessories by threading the leather lacing from the back to the front and then tying in the back. The laces wrap around fiber, captering multiple stitches on the back.

    Luxurious Bulky Yarn

    (LBY-)

    Color:

    Our bulky yarn is 100% premium wool that is beautiful, durable, and a pleasure to knit. Use it to make a knitted coat worthy of handling a Maine winter. Or work densely for a poof, or even rug that welcomes and even entices you to take off your socks and curl your toes into its texture.

    Luxurious Bulky Yarn is put up in an 8oz 125 ydd (114m) 100% wool single-ply skein.

    Dense if knitted on a size 11 or 13 needle, we get 2 sts and 3 rows per inch on a size 13 - 17 depending on your knitting gauge.
