This week’s swatch is Drop-stitch Honeycomb from the Second Treasury.
I like the right side fine, I guess. The wrong side is really cool though, so much so that I hesitate to call it the wrong side.
It has a really cool bumpy, quilted-looking texture. I think it would be really neat in a tailored jacket, or as a more subtle texture in a garment like Surface.
The pattern is easy to work, too. Five rows out of six are plain stockinette, and the texture is created by dropping stitches and picking up the threads every sixth row. The dropping maneuver is a little fiddly at first, but it’s fine once you get used to it.
