Honeycomb Lovey

Design by: Kristen Mangus

This honeycomb lovey pattern was originally made as a sample and could be used on a larger loom and stitched together for a nice blanket. This is not to be confused with the honeycomb stitch which is different in technique and look. I hope you enjoy the honeycomb lovey for your sweet one.

Materials:

Loom:
Knifty Knitter yellow long loom with 18 pairs of pegs or 38 pegs in the round.
Yarn:
Boucle (yarn used mill ends; undetermined manufacturer).  Use 2 strands held as one. 1 skein or 2 in order to hold 2 strands as one.
Stitches:This is a Honeycomb pattern using the Box stitch also called the Double Rib stitch.

Instructions:

Cast on in double rib stitch. (similar to the triple rib but only 2 consecutive pegs next to each other then jump to the opposite board.)
Rows 1-12: Double rib pattern
Rows 13: Shift pattern over 1 peg so the wrap pattern alternates. (see photos)
Rows 13-24: Double rib pattern Offset
Repeat Rows 1-24 one more time and bind off.
Two Bind off/Cast off options:
Use basic bind off method and finish loose cast on edge with crochet hook to tighten edge.
-OR-
Use stretchy bind off method to get a loose stretchy edge.  To get this look add one more wrap and knit off before moving on to next bind off.  See video; example in triple rib but is still similarly worked. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z8Gml9DEEg)
(Updated editors Note 2015: This honeycomb lovey pattern was written and photos taken in 2010. New skills and techniques/ refinement learned by Author since then..  There are cleaner options added such as the stretchy bind off. The right side of the photo shows using a slipped stitch but not the left side of the loom. We recommend using a slip stitch on both ends for a cleaner edge on your Honeycomb Lovey)
