How to knit the bee stitch
Row 1: Knit all stitches (This is the wrong side of your fabric)
Row 2: Knit 1, *K1B, Knit 1*, repeat from * to end
Row 3: Knit all stitches
Row 4: K2, K1B, *K1, K1B*, repeat from * to the last two stitches, K2
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 until your work reaches the desired length.
K1B = Knit into the stitch below the next stitch on your left needle – you will be dropping the next stitch off the left needle at the same time. This is a bit hard to understand written, so be sure to watch the video if you are confused.
This method creates a sturdy fabric that does not curl or roll like the stockinette stitch pattern can. The bee stitch creates a thicker fabric that is suitable for scarves, blankets, washcloths and pot holders. Use thick yarn and large needles to make a heavier bee stitch piece, or thin yarn and smaller needles for lighter, finer work.

Row 6: With B knit 2, * drop next stitch from needle and unravel 4 Rows down, picking up the B stitch from Row 1 below, insert needle into this stitch and under the 4 loose strands of C and knit catching the 4 loose strands behind stitch, knit 3 * . Repeat between * * until 2 stitches remain, knit 2. Row 7: With B purl. Rows 8 and 10: With C knit. Rows 9 and 11: With C purl. Row 12: With B knit 4, drop next stitch, unravel and knit B stitch from 5th Row below as in Row 6, knit 3 * . Repeat between * * until 1 stitch remains, knit 1.
