Honey cowl the first, a little too small, was cast on with 160 stitches.
Honey cowl the second, a little too long, was cast on with 200 stitches.
This one was cast on with 180 stitches.
And the MadelineTosh in Filigree is beautiful. It’s 90 degrees outside, but I may need to wear it anyway.

This sweater is the last in the series for a friend’s baby. Bootees, hat with ears, crocheted blanket, and, finally, Tulips.
Brown and green match the chosen theme colors. I made the 12-month size, hoping for a good fit this winter.
The yarn is 75% acrylic/25% wool, so it took some direction during blocking and should be fine in the washer/dryer.
I hope they both enjoy it!
While at the store to pick out baby sweater yarn, I was mesmerized by some MadelineTosh DK in Filigree. An intriguing combination of mostly yellow-green, with teal and golden accents. I left it on the shelf that day, knowing that I was knitting on a deadline and it would be hard to resist. But, now, it’s on the needles for… honey cowl number three!
I wound the yarn for this one on the way home from STITCHES. MadelineTosh Vintage (short skein) in tart.
Cast on 200 stitches on a size 5, 47 inch circular; turned out great.
Good color and fit for a sweet co-worker.
The first honey cowl is finished.
I cast on 160 which turned out a little bit smaller than ideal. It’s a tad tight when wrapped twice, but plenty warm and might stretch with use or if blocked. The Manos is wonderful.
I can see how these can become addictive: only one skein and one week yields a highly satisfying project!
