This raglan looks dashing and is easy to make.The honeycomb pattern is a simple mix of knit, purl, and slipped stitches.
Body and sleeves are knit in the round separately and joined at the yoke. The sweater is then worked all together from armpit to neck, which leaves mere inches of seaming to be done at the end of the project.
I am a historian of science, so I name some of my designs for scientific figures from the past. In 1853, Rev. Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth published The Hive and the Honey Bee, which for the first time described many of the beekeeping techniques still used today. Langstroth invented the concept of “bee space,” which means leaving about 1 cm (the size of a bee) between each frame in a hive box. This encourages bees to build honeycombs only on the removable frames, instead of on the hive box itself. This made it possible for beekeepers to handle the frames and extract honey as they had never been able to do before.
This pattern is an adaptation of my popular boys’ sweater pattern, Langstroth, which is also available from KnitPicks and Ravelry.
