Honeycomb Knit Stitch Pattern

Meet a new addition to the collection of knitting stitches, a honeycomb stitch. Its dense structure with decor elements on the outside and little space in-between stitches makes it a great option for almost all types of winter garment – from hats & snoods to scarfs & headbands. Love the stitch? Let’s knit it!

Knitting materials and tools:

<> DPN 4 mm (UK 8 or US 6)

<> Debbie Bliss (Cashmerino Aran) 55% Wool, 12% Cashmere, 33% acrylic. Baby pink color: 50 grams -90 m per skein.
