Hi, Hon! People from Baltimore are familiar with this greeting and the beehive-hairdo’d ladies who wield it. With this cowl, now in Worsted, I used big welted sections to echo the original kind of beehive, with a little easy lace thrown in for interest. The cowl gradually increases in circumference as you go, meaning it cascades gorgeously into a fashion layer with no styling effort. Skills include I-cord cast-on and bind-off, knitting in the round, simple lace with increases and decreases. Welted sections are written with a “no purl” option for those who prefer!
