The honeycomb design appeals to the engineering side of my mind. Using hexagonal cells, bees create a structure that is sturdy and an extremely efficient use of building materials and space. It also appeals to the other side of my mind where honeycombs conjure thoughts of warmth, safety and community. The Reversible Honeycomb Hat, Cowl & Scarf designs have double thick reversible cables that form warm, squishy hexagonal cells over a drapey garter stitch fabric. It will certainly be what you want to wrap yourself in this winter.

This hat uses 2 colours of fingering weight yarn. The Main Colour creates the honeycomb pattern on one side of the hat and the Contrast Colour is used for the tubular cast on and creates the design on the other side of the hat.

This hat is knit in the round starting with a tubular cast on. The reversible honeycomb design is made using slipped stitch cables that are applied to both sides of the two colour garter stitch background. Only one yarn is worked at a time.
