Product details

Bees are exceptionally clever creatures. Honeybees use their beeswax to create strong and highly efficient honeycomb structures, which they use for accommodation, food storage, and a place to raise their larvae. The Beeswax hat celebrates the beauty of this structure.

The Beeswax hat's honeycomb texture is made up of simple mini-cables, which can be knit without a cable needle. I've included instructions for my favourite twist method, which I find intuitive and easy to remember, but you can use any method you prefer.

Materials: 150 yards of DK or worsted-weight yarn: I used Vintage Purls Max (a heavy-DK-weight merino/nylon sock yarn). If substituting yarn, I recommend a bouncy merino or other woollen-spun yarn with lots of ‘body’, so the cables are plump and well-defined.

This hat is very stretchy, and will fit most adults with a 20”+ head circumference. Suggestions are given for resizing. Both charted and written instructions are included.

Pattern is for personal use only.
