The honeycomb texture is made up of simple mini-cables, which can be knit without a cable needle. I’ve included instructions for my favourite twist method, which I find intuitive and easy to remember, but you can use any method you prefer.
2 skeins of Vintage Purls Max (75% merino, 25% nylon; 227yds/208m per 100g skein), or 330.5 (425)yds/302.5 (389)m of DK or light worsted weight yarn. Sample colourway: ‘Toffee Deluxe’
US 6 / 4mm circular needles (or needle size that gives you the right gauge), 24”/60cm or shorter in length
A cable needle (optional), an end-of-round stitch marker, and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Sizes 1 (2) relaxed after blocking: 24.5”/62cm circumference, and 10 (12.75)”/25.5 (32.5)cm length from cast on to bind off
Size 2 is worked identically to Size 1 but with an additional 20-round repeat of the Honeycomb Pattern
The circumference can be altered by adding or subtracting 24 stitches from the cast on for a difference of 3.5”/9cm after blocking
Sample is shown in Size 1.
Both charted and written instructions are included.
