The honeybee hat just wouldnâ€™t be complete without a sweet little cowl to go with it. I chose to use similar patterns for the cowl and hat, but with a few changes. Youâ€™ll find a field of flowers on the cowl. After all, those honey bees need their nectar to make us delicious honey. The picot bind-off is a touch of whimsy on this cowl, but should you choose to leave it off, I think the bees would like it anyway.
