Miss Honeychurch

In E.M. Forester’s A Room with a View, Miss Lucy Honeychurch travels to Florence, and despite the vexing interference of her dismal cousin Charlotte, manages by the end of the story to find adventure and true love.

Like the original Miss Honeychurch, this hemp sweater looks more delicate than it really is. The yarn can be machine washed and thrown in the dryer and it only gets softer and more comfortable to wear–perfect for a trip to Italy or just as a pick-me-up after a rainy spring. It is worked in one piece from the top down, with lovely textures, unexpected side cables and quirky picot edging. The three-quarter-length sleeves add a playful touch and the swingy A-line shape is flattering on many figures.

This pattern is available in Knitty Summer 2009.

  1. Miss Honeychurch sweater.
    Have been looking for top down sweater pattern to learn how.
    Have made a few for Am. Girl dolls.

    Now using Miss Honeychurch pattern.
    Pattern notes explain inc. sts. as M1L, M1R
    Cannot find reference in pattern.
    After 16 rows, pattern changes from k1 p1 on sleeve and begins relaxed rib pattern.
    What am I missing ?
    Kfb creates same slant, right ?

    1. Hi Priscilla,
      I’m so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. At the beginning of the pattern on Knitty, you should find a link to a list of abbreviations
      Here are the instructions for M1L and M1R:
      M1L [Make 1 Left] Insert left needle, from front to back, under strand of yarn which runs between next stitch on left needle and last stitch on right needle; knit this stitch through back loop. 1 stitch increased
      M1R [Make 1 Right] Insert left needle, from back to front, under strand of yarn which runs between next stitch on left needle and last stitch on right needle; knit this stitch through front loop. 1 stitch increased.
      Cheers,
      Cheryl
