The Diamond Honeycomb knitting stitch gets its name from the way it resembles a honeycomb-like relief pattern in the shapes of diamonds across the fabric.
In 12 easy rows, it creates a gorgeous fabric that is perfect for decorative cushions and blankets. The Diamond Honeycomb stitch makes up for a slightly thicker fabric because of the relief pattern, making it ideal for winter wearables like sweaters.
