Knitting: Honey Cable Cowl
The Honey Cable Cowl
is a gorgeous Baby Alpaca scarf
that has been patiently waiting for over
a month to be shown off.
What can I say, I have been busy
and oddly reluctant to pick up my camera,
including my iPhone camera.
I have no idea why,
but I pushed through it and here it is!
This pattern is sooo easy
and the results unbelieveable.
In fact, it was so simple
I found myself continually checking the pattern
to make sure I wasn't missing
But, no the Honey Cable Cowl
really is perfect for knitting newbies.
So where can you get your hands
on this pattern?
Morris & Sons - my favourite yarn store in Sydney.
The pattern number is 44229.
I can't remember how much it cost,
but I remember thinking it was a bargain.
I love a good bargain!
To follow the pattern,
you will need a pair of 7.00mm knitting needles,
a cable needle and 7 balls of Morris Maya 14ply (50g/50m).
And yes, you are correct,
I have used the Maya 14 ply before.
On my very first knitted scarf
Maya 14 ply is a scrummy yarn
(you can use scrummy to describe yarn, right?).
Made from baby Alpaca,
this yarn is super soft and has a glorious drape
when knitted into a cowl.
It is so soft and gorgeous,
I don't think I will be able to wear any other yarn
around my neck this winter.
Lucky for me I bought extra Maya goodness in Cream and Bisque
(the colours I used in the Candy Striped Scarf).
retails for $11.00 and can be bought online,
but you will need to be quick, I think I am going stock up
on some more.
It's not long to Christmas don't you know...only kidding!
But seriously, I may just clear out their supplies,
so get in fast.
