Honeycomb check stitch question
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Bernadette,

I did some search on the web and came across this honeycomb check dishcloth pattern which has exactly the same direction as you described in your question.

Original instruction: "*insert right needle from front of work into Dec st from Row 3 and draw up a loose loop
(leave loop on right needle), p3, insert cable needle or crochet hook into front of same Dec st from Row 3 and draw up a loose loop, place this loop on right needle, p1; "

Here is the simple version of the instruction I can translate to you.

"*Knit into a Dec St from row 3. You'll get a long loop, then p the next 3 sts, Then Knit into the same Dec St again. You're now ending up with 2 long loops forming a V shape with 3 purls sts in the center, p1;"

Does this makes any sense to you? If you're still confused please let me know.

Happy knitting!

Ratcha
