Afghan Square Project: Square 4 -HoneyComb Square
 
This is the last in the afghan square series. It is framed with Irish moss
with an inner frame of purled stitches to make it stand out. It is the same
pattern stitch used as the center panel for the sweater in my book so if you
have done up the sweater this will be very familiar to you. It is one of my
favorites. The honeycomb is worked over 8 stitches over 8 rows.
The materials used and the frame is the same as the previous squares.
See square 1, for materials etc.
