Mock Honeycomb

This is a "mock" honeycomb because it does not require the use of the cable needle, as does the true Aran Honeycomb. Mock Honeycomb is, instead, a variety of smocking, with strands drawn across the surface of the fabric in honeycomb pattern. It is especially good for bulky sweaters.

Multiple of 4 sts plus 1. Rows 1, 3, and 5 (Wrong side)—Purl.

Rows 2 and 4—Kl, * si 3 wyif (holding yarn loosely), kl, rep from *.

Row 6—K2, * insert needle under the long loose strands of 2 previous rows and knit the next st; k3; rep from *, end k2 instead of k3. Rows 7, 9, and 11—Purl.

Rows 8 and 10—K3, * si 3 wyif, kl; rep from *, end k2. Row 12—K4, * insert needle under the loose strands of 2 previous rows and knit the next st, k3; rep from *, end kl.

Repeat Rows 1-12.
