This pattern is a part of the Honeycomb e-book.

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.

I recommend that you try one of my knit in the round Fusion Knitting patterns before trying this scarf which is knit flat.

This scarf uses 2 colours of fingering weight yarn. The Main Colour creates the honeycomb pattern on one side and the Contrast Colour is used for the i-cord that surrounds the scarf and creates the design on the other side.

The reversible honeycomb design is made using slipped stitch cables that are applied to both sides of the two colour garter stitch background. The i-cord is knit with the body of the scarf so no picking up is needed. Only one yarn is worked at a time.

The Reversible Step Series is an introduction to Fusion Knitting. They will help you get started with this technique. Fusion Knitting Tutorials show how to do the most commonly used cables without the use of a cable needle.

A matching Reversible Honeycomb Hat and Reversible Honeycomb Cowl are also available.

ERRATA: Row 33 should start with “Sl3 wyib” instead of “Two Rows of I-Cord”
