Tunisian Crochet Honeycomb Stitch Tutorial & Beginner Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Tunisian Crochet Honeycomb Stitch Tutorial might just be my favorite of all of the different ways to make the honeycomb stitch. This is a great stitch pattern that you'll find a variation of in almost every craft that's out there. It's drawn from the organic inspiration of bees' honeycomb, which has that great repeating pattern. In this example, the pattern shows up as texture. And what better way to try out the stitch than to also create a cute ear warmer headband while you learn it?
