TWO COLOR MOCK HONEYCOMB STITCH

Today we bring you a two color stitch suitable for all audiences, you need to know how to knit, how to purl, and be willing to learn. It’s not hard at all! You just have to follow the instructions carefully.

 

 

For this pattern we used MeriWool (http://www.weareknitters.com/skeins-and-needles/skeins/the-meriwool) in color aquamarine (COLOR A) and the Petite Wool in turquoise (COLOR B). With the corresponding size 11 WAK knitting needles. (http://www.weareknitters.com/skeins-and-needles/needles/knitting-needles).

 

To begin, using color A, cast on a multiple of 4 + 1 stitches. This stitch is not reversible and is started on the wrong side of the work.

 

Row 1: purl all stitches with color A.

 

Row 2 (Right side of work): knit all stitches with color A.

 

Row 3: with color A. *Purl 1, slip 3 with yarn in back*. Repeat from *to* until there is 1 stitch left, purl 1.

 

Your work should look the same as in the photo.
