Beeswax Cowl

The Beeswax cowl is a cosy, generously-sized neck-warmer, the matching complement to the Beeswax hat. It features the same double-layered honeycomb pattern, flowing naturally into and out of the ribbed edges. 

Skills & Techniques

  • Long Tail Cast On (optional)

  • Knitting in the round

  • Simple mini-cables which can be knit without a cable needle (instructions for my favourite twist method are included)

  • Charts and written instructions are both provided in full

Materials Needed

  • 2 skeins of Vintage Purls Max (75% merino, 25% nylon; 227yds/208m per 100g skein), or 280 yards / 256 metres of DK or worsted-weight yarn

  • US 6 / 4 mm circular needles (or needle size that gives you the right gauge)

  • The same size needles for working a small circumference in the round

  • A cable needle if you wish, a stitch marker, and a needle for weaving in the ends

Finished Measurements

  • 25”/64cm circumference, and 10”/25.5cm depth

  • The cowl can be enlarged by adding repeats (with additional yarn).
