I knitted this honeycomb cable stitch. Very interesting 3-d effect.

I think it would be even better if I could put a different color in the base of the design. Has anyone done that, if so, do you have a pattern?

That looks really cool...I am just learning to cable and although the results are pretty, it's amazing how T I G H T the stitches get sometimes!

I agree that the honeycomb would make a gorgeous scarf - maybe a scarf and hat set??? :hug:

That is a totally cool stitch result. I can't wait to see what you knit with that stitch!

I love that effect! Do you have a written pattern for that stitch? It would make a great, scrunchy scarf.

I was thinking scarf, too, when I saw the design pop out.

Oh, yeah! the sts DO get really tight! i was fighting with the needles a few times, but, it all turned out ok.

Do you know any other 3-d knitting patterns I can try?
