The Beeswax cowl is a cosy, generously-sized neck-warmer, the matching complement to the Beeswax Hat and Mitts. It features the same double-layered honeycomb pattern, flowing naturally into and out of the ribbed edges.
The 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.
Suggestions are included for resizing, and both charted and written instructions are included.
Materials: Approximately 280 yards of DK or worsted-weight yarn. I used 120g (one-and-a-bit skeins) of Vintage Purls Max, which is a heavy-DK-weight merino/nylon sock yarn. For a matching hat and cowl set, two skeins will be plenty. If substituting yarn, I recommend choosing a bouncy merino or other woollen-spun yarn with lots of ‘body’, so the cables are plump and well-defined.
