Dwarrowdelf Cowl


The Dwarrowdelf is another name for the Mines of Moria in the Lord of the Rings. I chose this name for this pattern, because the geometric colorwork design reminded me of the many geometric designs found in the architecture of Moria in many Tolkien illustrators depictions of this dwarven realm and in the Lord of the Rings Films directed by Peter Jackson. The Dwarrodelf Cowl is a fun and easy colorwork cowl pattern that provides many options for customization and stash busting. It includes two colorwork charts, one with two colors and one with three. You can work the whole cowl with one of these charts or mix and match them, as I did! It is perfect for using up scraps from previous projects, which is what I did when designing the cowl, as you can see from the pattern photos. I hope you have fun with this one, and I can’t wait to see all your wonderful versions!
