Here is what I tried with the ggh Aspen. First the pattern is very poorly written, and then the yarn is too chunky for this, I think.
I spent hours googling for an explanation of the honeycomb stitch, not very successfully. Then I found it in my Harmony Guide, but I needed the diagram to understand what to do. In any event, I found I'd soon run out of yarn if I attempted to go any further on this, so it's waiting to be frogged.

Naaah. This yarn is still in search of a good pattern to be shown off, and something tells me it might be knit. This bit took an entire skein!
