One of my favorite parts of spring is watching the bees come back to the garden, foraging for the nectar and pollen they need for their hives. This sunny yellow shawl is inspired by honeycomb and sweet flowing honey.

Knit in a soft laceweight yarn, Liquid Honey is light and delicate. Its structure is a traditional top-down triangle, beginning with a garter tab cast on. The body of the shawl is covered in honeycomb lace that is intuitive to knit, formed with double yarn-overs and simple decreases. The honeycomb flows downwards into a zigzagging lace border and a picot bind-off. The effect is of liquid honey dripping from golden honeycomb.
