I’ve been craving one of those long, loopy scarves – and I found the perfect solution in a free pattern by Madeline Tosh. The Honey Cowl uses up 2 skeins of DK weight yarn in a completely mindless, easy knit that works up fast!
Again, we’re taking the mirror route of photography here….
This slip stitch patten is unbelievably quick and mindless, a good TTC knit. I’m using 2 skeins of TFA Yellow Label DK weight yarn in ‘Deep Sea‘. Deep sea is my favourite these days….it’s taken over from Mallard ;) I love how this simple stitch pattern compliments the subtly varigated yarn.
The slip stitch pattern is also dense and warm. Both sides look lovely;
I could definitely have kept going – but there was a cold snap in Toronto and I wanted to wear it! I did have more than half my 2nd skein of TFA left over, so I’ll be making matching mittens.
My only pattern mods were that I went straight into the pattern without the stockinette border, and that I added a few inches to the length. The stitch pattern is easily modified to make it shorter or longer.
Did I mention that the pattern is available free on Ravelry? Pattern page here!
