I really like what the Honey Cowl pattern does with a multi-colored yarn.
The pattern is easy, but that didn’t prevent me from messing it up several times. How hard can it be to just do “slip, purl, slip, purl”? Pretty hard sometimes, I guess.
You might be tempted to stop before you reach the full 12 inches of height, but don’t. It puddles around on your neck. I’m glad I knit the whole thing, several people have told me they stopped short and they regret it.
I love the mock seam that happens when you do garter stitch in the round!
Isn’t it funny how different the two “sides” look?
And best of all… it’s another skein of sock yarn used up from my stash!
Updated with a link to the pattern. I made the smaller version, because I only had one skein of yarn.
