The Button Up Honey Cowl is the perfect accessory to keep your neck cozy! Knitted in the round, the cowl features a honeycomb pattern in the main body of the neck and a Stockinette stitch panel to display some decorative buttons. The pattern provides instructions for both fingering weight and DK weight yarn and works great for men and women. You never use more than one color in a round, so the knitting is fun and fast! Grab two coordinating yarns, some buttons, and your needles and settle in for a little knitting.
