A blanket of concentric squishy squares, Like A Honeycomb is simple, homey, and versatile. Inspired in part by the mitered shaping in Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Baby Surprise Jacket, I knit it as a baby blanket, but of course now that it’s done, it looks good everywhere, and will in all likelihood spend just as much time on various household laps as wrapped around a baby.

It has a comforting but surprisingly modern feel, and knits up very quickly. Worked in stockinette, garter stitch, and an hourglass-looking honeycomb stitch, it changes just often enough to keep things interesting.
