A result of experimentation with mosaic knitting, the Honeycomb Hat, Mitts and Scarf began as triangles and morphed into its final incarnation: the honeycomb motif. The designer, Carol, usually has tunes running through her head as she knits and this pattern was no exception. The tune for this creation is Bob Merrill’s “Honeycomb” which was a number 1 single in 1957 and a song she heard her mother sing often.

Using only one color per row, mosaic knitting is able to achieve the design through the use of slipped stitches. Because of this, the finished product is just as stretchy as if only one color were used throughout – the perfect quality for hats and mittens alike!
