Honeycomb ground

Honeycomb ground sample

Honeycomb ground is worked with two pairs at a time.  Start by working a half stitch.  Then, twist the left-hand pair once, and twist the right-hand pair once.  Put up a pin between the two pairs.  Then close the pin by working a half stitch and twisting both pairs one more time.

Put differently:  cross, twist, twist, pin, cross, twist, twist.

Or put in yet another way:  half stitch, twist, pin, halfstitch, twist.

The video below demonstrates how to work honeycomb ground.
