The ultimate multi-season accessory, the Beekeeper Cowl is both playful and refined. With decadent yarn, vivid textural details, and a button closure, this quick cowl is the perfect weekend project. If you love the Little Bee texture in the Beekeeper Cardigan, this will give you another way to play with it!

Skill Level
Intermediate

Yarn notes
Knit in deliciously soft cashmere (or any DK weight yarn that feels great against your skin), this cowl should be medium-bodied with subtle drape after blocking. Solids or semi-solids will show stitch definition best, but you can play with a variegated option if you prefer to see more color and less defined texture.
