Honey Cowl Number Two in Bulky Yarn

Double wrap cowl pattern

This is the second Honey Cowl I have knit and this time I used bulky yarn. The color,”Rock Sparrow”, yarn offered at Miss Babs a while ago. The other yarn weights were sold out, so I chose the K2 skein because it was all that was left. I had no idea what to use it for.

This yarn has been staring me down every time I go into my craft storage room. While I was organizing my finished knitwear projects, the idea for a second Honey Cowl clicked. The slipped stitch, which is used to make the cowl, would show off the colors of Rock Sparrow nicely. I already knew it was a quick and easy knit.

As you can see in my photo the texture is lovely, and the edges curl in to give the whole thing a border. These photos were taken before it was washed.

How I Made It

Using a size 10.5 US, long circular needle, cast-on 192 stitches and join. Place BOR (beginning of round) marker. Follow Honey Cowl pattern (FREE) directions until yarn is nearly gone. I used up most of this bulky yarn ball.

This is a very easy knit, and just about any weight of yarn works if you adjust the cast on number accordingly. Make it short, or double-wrap as you like.

See my first Honey Cowl here. I knit that one back when I first began knitting, and I used various yarns in rust orange and autumn colors.
