We fell in love with this kitten-soft yarn and wanted to find just the right pattern to showcase it. The Maria Cowl is truly like knitted jewelry for your neck--a beautifully uncomplicated honeycomb stitch making the most of two skeins of Apu. Knit in the round, single-stranded knitting alternates with doubled-stranded for loft, squish, and unique texture. Produced exclusively in this creamy undyed color, Amano presents this heavenly fiber in its most natural state -- you'll love it next to your skin.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 6 (4mm) 16" circular needle, or size to obtain gauge.
24 sts = 4" in pattern stitch in the round, blocked.
We alternated the two skeins at every Beginning of Round. This eliminates long floats being carried up the wrong side of the work, and eliminates any waste - your beautiful yarn from both skeins will be used equally throughout.
