Honeycomb Stitch – Pattern Description
In today’s tutorial, I am sharing with you a beautiful, texture stitch: The Honeycomb Stitch.
The Honeycomb Stitch is a four-row repeat crochet pattern that uses long single crochet and front post single crochet stitches to create a thick, solid, and textured fabric in the shape of a honeycomb.
It works great for bags, baskets, hot pads, and any other project that requires a solid and thick texture.
Scroll down for the step-by-step pattern instructions and the video tutorial I made for those of you who are visual learners.

Long Single Crochet (Lsc) – The long single crochet is made just like a regular single crochet stitch, except you insert the hook 2 rows below.
Step 1: Insert the hook in the stitch located 2 rows below under the unworked stitch, yarn over and pull a long loop, yarn over and pull through the 2 loops on the hook.
Front Post Single Crochet (fpsc) – The front post single crochet is made just like a regular single crochet stitch, except it is made around the stitch posts one row below. In this case, it is made around the loops of the long single crochet stitches below.
Step 1: Insert the hook behind two loops of the long single crochet stitches below (pick up a loop each from 2 long single crochet stitches below).
Step 2: Complete the single crochet stitch as usual: yarn over and pull up a loop (2 loops on the hook), yarn over, and pull through the 2 loops on the hook.
- ch1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch
- stitches contained within ** are the repeat section for that row
Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain even numbers of stitches. My starting chain is 24chs.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of the remaining stitches, ch1, turn = 23sts
Row 2: Sc in every stitch, ch1, turn
Row 3: Sc, *Lsc in next st, ignore the unworked stitch behind the Lsc, sc in next st*, repeat from * until the end of the row, ch1, turn.
Row 4: Sc in next 2sts, *fpsc in next st, ignore the unworked stitch behind the fpsc, sc in next st*, repeat from * until you have 1st left, sc in that last st, ch1, turn.
Row 5: Lsc under the very first st, ignore the unworked stitch behind the Lsc, *sc in next, Lsc in next (make sure that when you insert the hook 2 rows below, it comes out inside the inverted V on the other side, between the 2 loops that touch at the top, the only exception is the last Lsc in the row) *, repeat from * until the end of the row, ch1, turn.
Row 6: sc, *fpsc in next st, ignore the unworked stitch behind the fpsc, sc in next st*, repeat from * until the end of the row, ch1, turn.
Repeat rows 3 – 6 until you have the required length for your project.
