Knitting: Honey Cable Cowl

  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!

 

 

 

 

Knitting: Honey Cable Cowl

 

 

 

 

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

something.

 

 

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 

 

 

The Candy Striped Scarf

 

 

 Mmm...stripes.

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).

Morris Maya 14 Ply Baby Alpaca

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.
