Let’s take a close look at our Honeycomb Cable Stitch Pattern. This vintage Honeycomb Cable stitch pattern is a knitting repeat of eight rows that are simple to memorize.

It looks really intricate to knit, but it’s actually quite simple. With a pattern of knit and purl techniques, plus two simple cable techniques, you can create this beautiful and modern looking pattern.
