Stitch Library - #5 Honeycomb Stitch



A pretty pattern made by purling and slipping stitches.

Abbreviations:
P – purl
sl 1 pw (slip 1 purlwise) – this is done by inserting the right needle into stitch on the left needle as though you are going to purl it, but instead of purling, just slip the stitch onto the right needle.

Cast on a multiple of 2 stitches plus 1.
Row 1: P1, *sl 1 pw, P1; repeat from * to end of row
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: P2, *sl 1 pw, P1; repeat from * to last stitch, P1
Row 4: Purl
Repeat these 4 rows to form the pattern.
