What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a unique baby gift, so I started playing with stitch patterns. I happened upon the honeycomb pattern and thought it would make a cute yoke for a sweater. After finding this gorgeous green yarn from Three Irish Girls, the name of the sweater was obvious!
What are you most proud of?
I'm really proud of the fit on this pattern. I love the way the honeycomb stretches to fit with some negative ease and I like the the sleeves are relatively fitted as well. I think this sweater looks like something you'd find in an upscale boutique.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take a little time to swatch the honeycomb stitch. The yoke pattern is written out row for row, but it's still helpful if you understand how the pattern progresses (and it's essential to swatch and measure your gauge anyway!)
