The Honey Collection is a mini-collection of six accessories: three hats with three matching cowls.
The Honey Dome Hat creates a peek-a-boo check by two slipped stitches with two knitted stitches interspersed by ridges of purl. Using a slightly piled yarn such as the Seda Rustica used in the sample, the main color is the star, and the background color just peeks through. The garter brim gives the hat a slight cloche-like or beach hat flair. For a subtler look, knit it in one color.
Honey and Waffles uses a classic slipped stitch motif to create a striking raised grid in the main color that is evenly decreased at the crown. For a subtler look, it can be knit in one color.
The Honey Flower Hat uses traveling slipped stitches to create an “X” pattern on the main body of the hat along with strategically placed and, mostly hidden decreases create a flower motif at the crown. It’s striking in stripes or as a solid color hat. Ombre/slightly variegated yarns work especially well as a contrast color or for a single color hat or cowl. The cowl is designed to be a single color. The cowl is knit in a single color using strategic accents of garter stitch in the diamonds so that the cowl will block flat.
