Product Details

Bees are exceptionally clever creatures. Honeybees use their beeswax to create strong and highly efficient honeycomb structures, which they use for accommodation, food storage, and a place to raise their larvae. The Beeswax Hat and the matching Cowl and Mitts celebrate the beauty of this structure. The Beeswax Hat's honeycomb texture is made up of simple mini-cables, which can be knit without a cable needle. I've included instructions for my favourite twist method, which I find intuitive and easy to remember, but you can use any method you prefer. Materials: 150 yards of DK or worsted-weight yarn: I used Vintage Purls Max (a heavy-DK-weight merino/nylon sock yarn). If substituting yarn, I recommend a bouncy merino or other woollen-spun yarn with lots of ‘body’, so the cables are plump and well-defined. This hat is very stretchy, and will fit most adults with a 20”+ head circumference. Suggestions are given for resizing. Both charted and written instructions are included.
