knit one below help!
Hi!

I'm doing the pattern "Green Sleeves" in the book Wrap Style and I can't seem to get a hang of the stitch. It's called honeycomb stitch, and the way I follow the pattern, it gives me an oversized garter stitch, not the honeycomb.

I've looked at how to knit one below but I only get info for stockingette stitch, not garter.

So, I'm stuck. Can anyone help?

Can you write out the pattern row, or link to the pattern?

yeah it seems I haven't figured it out in the end... it still looks like a giant garter stitch.

The instructions are:

CO 50, purl all stitches.
(row 2)*K1, k in the row below* to last 2 stitches, k2
(row 3)K2, *k in the row below, k1*
(row 4)Repeat
(row 1) like row 2
(row 2) repeat
etc.... until 60 inches long.

It's supposed to look like a sideways square almost, but I only get garter stitch, and it is very frustrating.

It should look something like ribbing on both sides. The st you knit in R2 becomes the k1b stitch on row 3. I usually start by knitting all sts in row 1, but it should look the same either way. It also takes about 6 or 8 rows for it to look right too.

Did you look at the video for knit in the st below? It's here (english link, there's a continental one too), and there's a tutorial with pictures at this site.

I've knitted something like 20-30 rows twice and it still gives me some kind of garter stitch, while it's supposed to look like little diamonds. You can look up the pattern on Ravelry and see what it's supposed to look like... it's in the book Wrap Style, and it's called Green Sleeves.

This project has some good pictures of the stitch. It looks like sort of a honeycomb stitch. Did you try pulling the cast on edge down from the needles? Sometimes it needs to be stretched out. Without a picture of your work, it's hard to say what the problem is, if you're doing the stitch right.

Is the pattern written for rows or rounds? I am totally capable of mixing up reading row verses rnd in a pattern. Then again I am still a very new knitter...

What she posted above says Row 2, Row 3, so it's knit flat.
