But don’t let the front post stitches scare you!

With a little patience and my step-by-step video tutorial, you’ll be able to master this stitch in no time!

Crochet Honeycomb Stitch

Normally, the honeycomb stitch is immediately associated with Tunisian crochet. However, this Honeycomb stitch is entirely made in classic crochet.

What I love about this stitch is the honeycomb texture of course, but also the fact that it mainly uses half double crochets.

The result is a solid fabric, which is very soft and warm, making this honeycomb stitch perfect for many different kinds of projects, such as:

  • Blankets and afghan blocks;
  • Winter accessories. For example, scarves, cowls, hats, and headbands;
  • Dishcloths and washcloths;
  • Home decor projects, including wall hangings and bags;
  • and many others!
