Oregon’s diverse crops bring bees and a variety of flavors that flavor deliciously sweet Oregon honey. This cowl and hat pair are inspired by the bees and honeycomb pattern as well as the yarn, (a special soft honey color), created by Broken Pattern yarns. Not only is this a fun knit but wearing your sweet cowl and hat will help you remember the yummy buzz of summer in Oregon.
