Honeycomb knit stitch pattern is a moderately challenging knitting stitch suitable for projects that call for an airy, delicate stitch. In general mesh stitches produce one-sided fabric but both sides looks great and can be used. It is perfect for spring and summer projects like cardigan, bolero, top, kids clothing, summer scarfs, etc. You can even knit a reusable shopping bag. Isn’t that great!

    Also, it’s not a multiple of 4 plus 2 plus 2. The pattern itself is 4 plus 2, and then there are two knit stitches and two edge stitches (one of each on each end), so it’s a multiple of 4 plus 2 plus 4, or 4 plus 2.

    I just found this, so I’m coming in way late, but I have a question: why is the pattern asymmetrical? If you left out the increase and decrease at the left edge of the chart on each row it would be symmetrical. It’s not a criticism, and of course I can leave them out if I wish, I’m just curious (and have a thing about symmetry).

    In the 3rd row after the pattern repeat, what does the “s” stand for?

      I think it means repeat between asterisks (*s), then end the row with yo,k1, edge st. Hope this helps. 🙂
