This dishcloth is based on the k1b honeycomb pattern from Teva Durham’s pattern Green Sleeves and is a result of a question in a KnittingHelp.com online forum. It’s also the result of my purchase of Elise Duvekot’s book Knit One Below and my attempt to try k1b sts in various forms in a dishcloth before trying anything more complicated.

Note: The pattern does not need a border. It lies flat without one.

I started out with leftover creamscicle yarn and finished off with leftover orange. I thought about reknitting it in just one color but decided that leaving it as is would show how the pattern looks in both solid and variegated yarns.

I generally use a size 6 needle with this yarn but needed to drop down to a size 5 for the pattern.
