The Two-Color Bee Stitch is the same stitch pattern as the original Bee Stitch with the only difference being the first involves knitting with two colors. The Bee Stitch has distinct similarities to honeycomb brioche stitch but the edges of bee stitch do not curl. Therefore, blocking is not necessary. If you’re looking to spice things up with the Bee Stitch, then try knitting it with multiple colors using the Two-Color Bee Stitch pattern below.
