This cowl consists of a pretty honeycomb pattern punctuated with eyelets. It is worked in the round and requires only one skein of worsted weight yarn. Simple left and right cross cable stitches are used to create the honeycombs. The result is a lovely cowl with lots of visual interest. Pattern instructions include both written and charted instructions for the pattern stitch. The Diamond Purl Cowl is a similar one-skein cowl pattern also designed in RSBS Superwash Worsted.
