Lagertha Cowl Pattern – Fay Dashper-Hughes


To celebrate our 2023 Open Weekend, and the creation of our ‘Down The Allotment’ Special yarns and tops, our chum Fay, has created a glorious crochet pattern – introducing, the Lagertha Cowl!

Lagertha is an elegantly simple, ribbed cowl with a braid. Worked in a two-row repeat, the plait is used to hide the joined edges and complete the cowl circle. The small and medium sizes are made in one panel with one braid and the large is made by joining two small panels together with two separate braids. Inspired by Lagertha the best known Shield Maiden. Depicted in the Vikings tv show, Lagertha always went into battle with braided hair and her signature sea-blue shield. This is the perfect cowl to celebrate a special few skeins of beloved yarn.
