Honeycomb crochet stitch

youngatfifty recommended I have a go at the honeycomb (Tunisian crochet) stitch. It looks lovely and, just as she said, the fabric produced doesn’t curl or roll up on itself. Youngatfifty’s post on this stitch can be found here and features a great scarf she made.

Here’s my attempt.

It’s surprisingly simple. All you do is alternate between a Tunisian purl stitch and the Tunisian simple stitch.

I’ll definitely be using this in a project 🙂

  1. Oh, I love it! I just wonder if it has as much of a tough, scrubber-like edge as the simple stitch. I find I really like them for washcloths for dishes, despite the “unsightly” curling.

  2. It looks great. I love that stitch too and enjoyed looking at youngatfiftys scarf.:-)

  3. Happy to share what I learn and know 🙂 Happier still when I see someone take my suggestions seriously 😉 LOL
    your swatch has turned out perfect ! It is indeed a very simple and beautiful stitch. Thanks for this post and pinging back 🙂
