Sherlock Wallpaper Design Knitted Cowl

Sherlock Wallpaper Cowl Knitting Project


This pattern came from “Professor-Fonz” on Ravelry: High-Functioning Cowl.

I’ve always loved the wallpaper design from the BBC TV Series “Sherlock”.  You can buy the wallpaper itself, but it’s pretty expensive!  This is a nice alternative to be able to create something to wear that has that same feeling.

This piece is knitted in the round using circular needles.  Towards the very end, I switched up to double-pointed needles as the number of stitches decreased.  In total, it took me 2 weeks or so, just working in the evenings and weekends.  Knitted in the fair-isle technique, which gave me plenty of time to practice getting my tension right.  The pattern suggests using cashmere yarn, however I just used regular double-knitting yarn.  The final item is probably slightly larger than the pattern describes, but I think it’s perfect!
