Raised Paving Knitting Stitch Pattern looks a lot like a Honeycomb Knitting Pattern but this one does not involve any cable knitting. Just like a honeycomb, this knitting pattern has an arrangement of hexagon-like motifs with raised edges. It is also popular as Honeycomb Pattern in the knitting community but as we already have one with cable stitches, we are calling it something different!
Although the pattern instructions are quite long, it is a simple knitting pattern that involves basic knit, purl, and slipped stitches.
The Raised Paving Stitch will work best in home decor projects like cushions and pillows as it gives a nice texture to the knitted fabric.
