Round Yoke Cowls and Capelets with Sivia Harding
A modification of Elizabeth Zimmerman's EPS system is the basis for our exploration of cowls that are shaped with round yokes. This amended system works for any size and any length cowl or capelet, although the shape needs to be long enough to encompass the shoulders. Cowls that have shoulder shaping are especially versatile because they stay on, They can be made as long as you like, as in capes or ponchos. You can use this template to make a patterned yoke, or stay with simple stitches.
