Sunshine and Honey Cowl

If you are a newsletter subscriber, you may already know this, but I have a new pattern in the April issue of the new magazine I Like KnittingSunshine and Honey Cowl!

This cowl is knit in the round in a tube, then seamed to the cast on edge. This is not a provisional cast on. This is seaming live stitches to a cast on edge (don't worry, a tutorial for this is coming soon). The colorwork is broken up with blocks of solid color. It's a fun and quick knit, great for using up a couple skeins of special yarn. 

Speaking of special yarn, I used Sunshine Yarns Merino Sport in the colorways Hive and Natural for this project. I used a bit more than one skein of the Natural colorway (about 1.2 skeins) which is a little inconvenient. However, Dani from Sunshine Yarns will be offering kits for this project in the fall when the pattern is re-released for individual sale. That's right, a pattern of mine will be in a kit! I feel so fancy just typing that :)

Anyway, until then you can check out I Like Knitting (they have subscriptions starting at under $20 for 6 issues) or you can just hang on until September and queue it up on Ravelry in the meantime!


  1. I like your design. It's versatile for any season. I do like your photo here much more than how it was styled.

    1. Thanks, I agree. I was disappointed in the publication photography and will be reshooting it before I release it again in the fall :(


I'd love to hear from you!
