The Honeycomb Stitch Earwarmer Headbands are not only comfy but quick to work up. These would be great items for yourself, as a gift, or if you sell at a market. The best part? Whether you crochet, knit, or Tunisian crochet, there is a pattern for you. I've gone the extra mile and done a mimic of each design so you can stay in your comfort zone, or explore another craft.

What Is Honeycomb Stitch?
The honeycomb is one of the most beautiful patterns in nature. It's a repeating pattern that has both an organic shape and a geometric one. The eye is mesmerized by this design. That's why you'll find it used in all different industries from textile design to flooring.
Therefore, it's of little surprise that you can learn how to knit honeycomb stitch, how to crochet honeycomb stitch, and even how to make the honeycomb stitch in Tunisian crochet. All three versions look very similar, especially when used to create the same project (like this headband) in the same yarn. However, look more closely, and you'll see slight variations in the texture - just like you would in the honeycomb of different bees.

The Earwarmer Headband Yarn:
For the Honeycomb Stitch Earwarmer Headbands, I originally chose to work with the Upcycle Wool Reserve from WeCrochet. This yarn was 100% Upcycled Wool. These special, single batch skeins give yarn a second life, creating complex heathers and saving fibers that would have otherwise gone to waste. What this means is it's a single batch, so once it's gone, it's gone. And unfortunately, it's gone.
However, WeCrochet has some great substitutes that work well for this pattern, such as:
CROCHET & TAG
