Honeycomb Cowl

Yeeee! I finally finished my Honeycomb Cowl!honeycomb cowl-2honeycomb cowl-7Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Sock
Colorway: Pollen
Pattern: Beeswax Cowl by the fabulous and talented Amy van de Laarhoneycomb cowl-3Because I’m always looking for trouble I chose to knit this pattern with fingering weight yarn instead of DK (as called for by the pattern). The consequence of my choice was math.honeycomb cowl-8I swatched using size 3 circular needles and my hexes were 1.5 inches across. I wanted a 30 inch cowl so I cast on 240 sts. and away I went.honeycomb cowl-4I skipped straight to the pattern instead of doing the ribbed border at the beginning because when I looked through some of the other projects on Ravelry it looked like the ribbing dominated the scarf and I really wanted to show off those awesome 3D hexes. honeycomb cowl-1I ended up doing 4.5 “repeats” instead of 1. The pattern is written with a chart for the edge hexes, middle hexes, and top edge hexes. I just repeated the middle a bunch til I was almost out of yarn and then finished with the top edge chart.honeycomb cowl-6I had 72 yards left over (that’s not very much) so a boisterous pat on the back was certainly in order! honeycomb cowl-5Have I blocked it yet? I’ll never tellhoneycomb cowl-9x. tab
