Honeycomb Tweed

Sample knit with Patons Grace Cotton Yarn on US Size 6 needles

A pretty two color stitch that is easy to do.  You needn't be too worried about having to carry the non working yarn up the side, since you are only doing two rows with each color.  When you are ready to change colors, simply pick up the color you need and drop the other.  I like to wrap the non working yarn around a finger on my right hand to keep some tension on the first stitch of the color change row.  

With Color A, cast on an Odd number of stitches.

Row 1: (RS) With Color B, K1 *Sl 1 wyib, K1*
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: With Color A, K2 *Sl 1 wyib, K1* Knit last two stitches
Row 4: Purl

Repeat these four rows for the pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

@beaz the same name can be applied to more than one stitch; this is one reason it can be difficult to find a particular stitch. Pick up three stitch dictionaries and it is possible to see the same stitch with a different name in each book.
