I am such a perpetrator of sweater envy, and summer is my only break from constantly staring at other people's sweaters to see if I like them or if I can do them or not, but then, in the midst of my vacation, there are summer movies.

Here's this amazing creation on Nicole Kidman.  I spent the whole scene greatly distracted from the dialogue, staring at the sweater.



Any ideas?  The ribbing is easy, it's the honeycombing I can't figure out.

Forgive me if I'm linking to a post you made on another forum, but I think this is different. Smiley  THe sweater is under much discussion here:

You might also look at the second honeycomb pattern here:

I think there are techniques with both cabling and only knits and purls that get a similar effect to that one.

Good luck!

The mystery stitch looks like a traditional Aran Honeycomb.   There are a couple of variations in Michael Pearson's Traditional Knitting.  Basically they go like this:

Row 1:  Purl
Row 2: Cable 4 back, Cable 4 forward, repeat
Work 4-6 more rows of stockinette (depending on the length of honeycomb you want)
Row 6 or 8:  Cable 4 forward, Cable 4 back, repeat

Hope this helps.
