|Honeycomb Lace Cowl|
Do you need a quick gift for someone special? Then the Honeycomb Lace Cowl is the project you're looking for. Inspired by the Honeycomb Lace Ornament, this very odd stitch pattern is made using only knit stitches with no yarn overs and only works when knit in the round. The only differences in the cowl and the ball ornament cozy are size, cast on/bind off edges, yarn weight and number of pegs used. The honeycomb lace stitch pattern makes for a “sweet” project that is fun and easy to do!

For the featured cowl, I used super bulky yarn which resulted in a cowl with a textured look. A more “lacy” cowl can be achieved by using lighter weight yarn and/or a smaller gauge loom similar to the Honeycomb Lace Ornaments which were made using a light worsted weight yarn on a 1/2” gauge round loom. The loom used for this cowl was the CinDWood 60 peg 5/8" gauge Oval Loom.

loom was used for this project.
The finished size of the cowl was approximately 30" (76 cm) circumference & 7" (18 cm) high and only took one skein or 87 yards of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. However, I barely won at yarn chicken since the small amount shown below was all that was left after binding off, so I would recommend about 90 yards of super bulky yarn just to be on the safe side.
