Modern Honeycomb Shawl Crochet

Modern Honeycomb Shawl Crochet

There are so many beautiful repeating patterns in nature. Bees honeycomb is one of the most amazing ones. You can’t go wrong with drawing inspiration from that, which is exactly what I did when I created this Modern Honeycomb Shawl crochet pattern. I’ve used a repeating hexagon shape to create the design. As you can see, it starts in one solid colors and flows into another variegated color. It’s almost like the bees are carrying that color along as the fly from flower to flower.

The Yarn That Inspired This Design

I just have to tell you about the yarn dyers behind the inspiration of the Modern Honeycomb Shawl. I firmly believe in supporting and uplifting other makers and creators. Recently some local dyers did the same for each other and organized a really fun event called the Yarn Lounge here in Central Florida.

It was the perfect time for me to purchase some new squishy yarn and work with the local market. But the cool thing is you don’t have to be in Central Florida to enjoy these stunning yarn options. Head on over to Olive and Two Ewe Studios to view the yarn used in this pattern as well as lots of other beautiful choices.

Or use up some pretty yarn in your stash that has been sitting around waiting for the perfect project! I’ve also included a few substitute suggestions in the pattern as well.

Who Is Modeling the Honeycomb Shawl?

I have to include a little blurb about my baby sister because I love her so much. You will often see one of my sisters as a model for my creations. I couldn’t successfully run a business without their support and on this special day we went to a succulent farm called Florida Cactus in Apopka.

My beautiful baby sister has a love for succulents and supports this local business often by making trips whenever she can. We were both pleasantly surprised at the fun and interesting location for photography. I was happy I happened to bring along my crochet & knit items last minute. You just never know when a creative environment will present itself.
