I had chosen a skein of sock yarn from stash – Fancy Image DK – for the Feministy KAL. I wouldn’t have thought of using this yarn for a cowl, but it matched the project’s yardage/weight requirements exactly.
After I gave up and ripped back, I realized that there was nothing to keep me from knitting a different cowl with the same yarn. The colors of this yarn are wonderful, but they don’t quite stand up to the abuse I heap upon socks.
So many Honey Cowls have come out of Mason-Dixon Knitting territory lately, I knew there had to be something to it. This is basically garter stitch knit in the round, with a staggered slip stitch pattern on all the purl rows. Simple, gorgeous, and I love what the slip stitches do to the colors!
