Last week, I was working on a cowl using this beautiful honeycomb crochet stitch. When I shared pictures on Facebook and Instagram, I had some requests for the pattern. It’s a crazy week around these parts (we have a big conference this week that we’re preparing for) so I didn’t have time to get the entire project finished, pattern written/tested, and modeled photos taken.
But, I was able to put together a quick video tutorial of the stitch. This is my first stitch tutorial, but I think there are definitely going to be more in my future. I learned a lot from creating this one, and now know some things that I would do differently, but this tutorial will show you how to make the honeycomb crochet stitch, and I’m thankful that you all don’t expect me to be a professional videographer!
In case you’re the type who likes to have written instructions, here they are:

To work this pattern, you need to chain a multiple of 5 stitches + 2. For this swatch, I chained 17.
If you want to create something larger using this pattern, you’ll want to chain a multiple of 5 and then add 2. 47, 27, 92. The possibilities are endless!
