Stitch of The Week: Honeycomb

The Wool Shop galashiels

This week’s Stitch of the Week from The Wool Shop is the Honeycomb stitch!

We at The Wool Shop are starting to see some of our customers getting started on their hand-knitted Christmas presents so I thought I’d share my most favourite cosy stitch with you! A gorgeously dense and thick stitch, this knits up beautifully as a pair of fingerless gloves or a mug cosy.

Perfect for quick Christmas gifts!
