    Looks really wonderful! Great Job Fiona!

    If i wanted to make this bigger, what is the multiple?

  3. Johnny Vasquez

    April 26, 2011

    @Alexandra: I believe the Honeycomb cable pattern is a repeat of 8 stitches and 8 rows.

    Is the April sq the 1st in this series? Are all the sqs going to be the same size? I would like to participate in this Knit-a-long, but would like some basic info, like how much yarn is needed for each sq, how much for the finished afghan – if that is the end goal. Thanks

    @susan: April is the first square. All the squares should block to 10"x10". I don't know how much yarn will be needed for each square or all the afghans, as they have not all be designed yet. I think it's safe to say you will get at least four squares from a skein of Patons Classic Wool, probably more. There will be 12 squares by the end of the year.

    I thought all squares were 12×12 I have made 4 now the are all 12×12 one from May and March

      For our New Stitch Afghan we release all pattern instructions to make a 12 x 12 square. I’m not sure I understand your question.

    I guess I am just set back by the Knit SS part of the pattern. Is this ssk?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 18, 2013

      It means stockinette stitch.

      • Joan Logue

        March 19, 2013

        kss is stockinette… so how does the row go? k1 p1 the entire row? And end with k1?

        • Johnny Vasquez

          March 19, 2013

          We have updated the pattern to make is more clear.

            This does the trick! Thanks!

            How do we get the corrections for your pattern of the April K-A-L Honeycomb Pattern. WE found the mistakes for the beginning of rows 5 and 6; however we are concerned with row 9. We think row 9 should be a WS row. So, should we repeat row 5 or what solution was given? If we add that row, will it throw us off for future squares?

          • Johnny Vasquez

            March 27, 2013

            I’ve updated the pattern to address your concerns. Please let me know if you have any other issues.

    Did I miss the needle size (US, Please)? Maybe it was addressed in older post, but I couldn’t find it.

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 19, 2013

      We’ve updated the post to include this information.

    How many yards of yarn for this Honeycomb Cable Afghan and how big will it be according to these instructions?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 19, 2013

      I’m not positive exactly, but I remember it being a little more than a third of a ball of worsted weight. I’d say 80 to be safe but don’t quote me on that.

    Where are rows 7& 8? The page I am viewing looks like this:

    Row 6: K1, P1, K1, Knit SS to last 3 sts, K1, P1, K1
    Repeat Rows 5-6 twice.
    —-
    Row 9: (RS): K1, P1, K1,*C4B, C4F,* rep from * to last 3 st, K1, P1, K1

    Am I missing something?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 19, 2013

      Yes, the repeat row 5 & 6 which account for row 7 & 8, but we’ve updated the pattern to make it more clear.

      • Rose Guilbeau

        March 19, 2013

        i have a question for you, what you mean by Row 9: (RS) : K1, P1,* C4B, C4F,* REP from * to last 3 sts, K1, P1, K1.
        I have another question for you, what you mean Row13: K1, P1, K1, * C4F, C4B, *REP from * to last 3 sts, K1 P1, K1.
        My name is Rose Guilbeau in live in Kenai, Ak, I am learning new things.

          I think what you really want to know is what does C4F and C4B stand for.

          It means Cable 4 Front and Cable 4 Back. You can find instructions for those here: How to Knit a Cable 4 Front and Cable 4 Back

    What does c4b and c4f stand for

  12. EDNA BOUCHARD

    March 19, 2013

    I look in the lexique and i dont find SS what is that

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 19, 2013

      It stands for stockinette, by we removed those instructions from the pattern to make it more clear.

    Johnny, this is really cool texture & pattern, but alas I do not knit, I crochet. Is there anything out there that comes close in a Crochet pattern?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      March 21, 2013

      There may be, but I do not know of one off hand.

  14. Jan S

    April 2, 2013

    How many stitches would I need to make a single full sized afghan? The pattern is so awesome!

    • Johnny Vasquez

      April 2, 2013

      That would depend on your gauge. I can’t really tell you.
