Gauge 26 sts & 44 rows = 4” / 10cm in honeycomb pattern after blocking. The sample is knit with a fairly tight tension. If you knit with a looser tension, your gauge will be a bit looser and you won’t have to knit quite as many honeycomb repeats for the cowl to reach a good size. Achieve a fabric tension that you like and enjoy the cozy honeycombs!
Pattern Note Weave in your ends as you go! Use the Weavin’ Stephen technique as you introduce new colorful stripes.
