I made this sweater many years ago (and a matching blanket) but no longer have the pattern. I'm trying to find one like it. I tried "Honeycomb" but the patterns I found are not this one--they're more difficult. This is an easy one. I thought one of you ladies might recognize it. Thanks in advance for your help.

BTW, DS in photo will be 30 next January!!

I knit this "honeycomb" washcloth recently, and the stitch pattern looks similar.

Beautiful sweater!

Thanks Amber. :D

I saw that pattern too and it does look like the one in the photo but it isn't that difficult. I was a very new knitter at the time (and still am since I stopped knitting for the years between then and now) and wouldn't have tackled anything that difficult.

I notice the dishcloth pattern is written for two colors but the photo appears to be all in one color. Did you do yours in two colors?

Well bummer! I was hoping that would help. I hope you can find out what it is.

I knit my washcloth in some varigated Sugar'nCream yarn. I was really just messing around -- wanted to try out the stitch pattern -- but it came out pretty nice. Once I figured out what KUL meant (thanks to Ingrid), it was really very easy!

Could it be this (http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/stitches/bubble.htm) in one color? Looks very similar to me!

could it be something like that?

Or maybe trellis stitch?

That does looks similar and it looks easy enough. I just may go with it. Mulene the links you sent look similar too but I think they're more difficult than this was--they are very attractive though. Thank you both for your help.

Indian Princess thanks for the compliment on the photo. He was such a happy, smiley baby and his Dad did a terrific job of photo documenting both of our sons' young years. This pic just makes me want to kiss those pudgy little toes that are sticking out of the blanket.
