Honeycomb # 1: Wrap peg 1 top board, down to peg 3, bottom board. Wrap peg 2 top, down to peg 5 bottom. Continue row by weaving every other peg to end at this angle, and return for full circular, so that all pegs are wrapped. Hook over. Repeat this series row #1, two additional times.
Honeycomb #2: Wrap peg 1 top board, down to peg 4, bottom board. Continue to end of loom as you work every other peg, and return for a full circular, so that all pegs are wrapped. Hook over.Repeat this series row #2, two additional times.
Cast on 64 stitches in Stockinette stitch using the entire loom. Lay contrasting anchor yarn.
Row 1-6: Work in Rib Stitch.
Rows 7-12: Work the Honeycomb Pattern.Repeat the Honeycomb Pattern an additional 15 times. At this point, your blanket should measure approximately 26 inches.
Then repeat Honeycomb Pattern #1 only for 3 rows. Work 6 rows of Rib stitch to match beginning of blanket.
