Fremen Cowl PDF, $5.00

Have you ever watched the movie Dune?


It’s a 1984 piece of David Lynch weirdness. It’s got this whole outer space rock opera, sci-fi visual thing going on. Bizarre characters, a lot of over-the-top hammy acting, but fun to watch. Likewise, the books that the movie is based on, by Frank Herbert, are also a fun read, if sci-fi is your thing.

This cowl pattern, Fremen, is named for the desert-dwelling people of the planet Arrakis from “Dune.” It features cables and lace which alternate to create soft textured chevrons on an oversized cowl, like undulating waves on the sand dunes of Arrakis. Wear it loose or pin it up for a closer fit. Fremen uses 1-2 skeins (approx. 400 yards) of fingering weight yarn.


This model is knit in an alpaca/silk/linen blend yarn, Aegypte by Phydeaux Yarns. Aegypte is really lovely to work with, it has an amazing sheen and drape. The best yarn substitutions would have some drape, but most fingering weight yarns would work well with the textured stitches. Fremen is a great stash-buster.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions. Originally released for the Badass Women’s Yarn Club, March 2016.
