About This Stitch Pattern

The Bee Stitch creates a thick fabric with a textured surface, reminiscent of a honeycomb. Using the Knit One Below stitch found in the Fisherman’s rib, this pattern makes a fluffy and light fabric. Although it looks complicated, the bee stitch is relatively easy to knit. Its unique texture makes it standout, and perfect for large projects. It also has an attractive wrong side. Use this stitch in blankets, scarves, hats, and even sweaters
