I first saw the Honey Cowl in Bluebird Yarns. I fell in love with the squishieness of the cowl, the rolled edge and the feel! And the sample was in my favorite color, Turquoise. I knew I had to try it.
Here’s what the original knitwear designer, Ana Maria, has to say about the pattern:
“A simple slip stitch pattern cowl creates a dense waffle―like fabric for warmth and supple drape. This flexible pattern can be worked in four different sizes using just one or two skeins of yarn. Both short and
longer versions are lovely viewed on both sides. Knit in light worsted yarn, this cowl is perfect for a bright pop of color and a warm hug around your neck.” You can find the pattern here:
And she’s right. The dense pattern is what makes so squishable. And the pattern is easy to remember.
Round 1 : Knit
Round 2 : * Purl 1, slip 1 wyif * repeat across round.
Round 3 : Knit.
Round 4 : * Slip 1 wyif, Purl 1 * repeat across round.
"wyif" = With Yarn In Front
I’ve used this stitch with one solid color, a variegated yarn, and with two colors, which gives it a total 3D effect. Go on, give it a try! You’ll fall in love with this stitch as well!
