Not knitting along

Here are the clues for the Downton Abbey KAL:
1) It is not a hat or socks. 2) It is knit in the round. 3) It is an accessory. 4) It is inspired by a garment that my favorite character on the show wears frequently. 5) This character has quite a feisty and opinionated personality. :)
It's got to be a cowl. I do not like cowls. I have no use for them.

I will use my Downton yarn to make a hat. I like hats.

ETA: I was right about the character (Lady Violet) and wrong about the pattern. It is lacy fingerless gloves. I'm glad I started a hat.

I don't do mystery; I need to know before I start! Sounds like your MO, too.

I on't remember seeing anyone wearing cowls, but that doesn't mean it's not so. Feisty and opinionated: Mrs. Crawley? The Dowager? Maybe it's a muff?

I like the idea of mystery KALs but they never work out well for me.

My guess was that it's The Dowager. I think I remember her wearing something lacy up around her neck. I did a search on Ravelry based on the yarn weight and yardage. Nearly everything that came up that fit was cowl-ish.
