Honeycomb Shawl

For this Honeycomb Shawl, we are using the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch. This stitch is a fun, textured stitch that is mindless once you get going. If you are new to Tunisian crochet, or the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch, I encourage you to visit this video tutorial before diving in. This is a great opportunity to learn a new skill set while making something beautiful in the process.

I am participating in the 2020 Furls Blog Hop, which means that this pattern features products all from Furls. I have absolutely fallen in love with the drape of this yarn and the stitch definition. I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical of the raving reviews before having worked with the yarn myself, but it’s true. The weight of the shawl and the way it is almost cool to the touch, with a great sheen… simply lovely. I hope you love it too!

Materials:

Whims Merino DK Yarn (lightweight – Blue colorway pictured)
-approx. 725 yards without tassels (4 skeins)

Tunisian Crochet hook in size J/6mm

Furls tunisian crochet hooks

Gauge: not crucial

Measurement (before blocking): approx. 64″ along widest edge

Measurement (after blocking): approx. 88″ along widest edge

Helpful notes:

If you have never crocheted the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch, watch this tutorial before getting started.

Always place your Tunisian Simple Stitch in the Purls from the previous row, and always place the Tunisian Purl Stitch in the Simples from the previous row.

Each row for the first half of the pattern will always, always (yes always) start the same, but the last stitch of the row will always be opposite of the one before it. For example if you end one row with a Tunisian Simple Stitch, you’ll end the next row with a Tunisian Purl Stitch. The same is true for the second half of the pattern.

YO = yarn over. This is how you increase in Tunisian. For the first half of the shawl (while increasing on the right side only) make sure you’re not skipping the increase (yarn over) from the previous row. It is slanted and can appear hidden. It is, in fact, a stitch!

TSS2TOG = Tunisian Simple Stitch two together. This is one way to decrease in Tunisian crochet. Insert the hook under both of the next vertical bars before pulling up the loop.

Row 2: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next. TPS in next, TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (4)

Row 3: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next. TPS in next, TSS in next, TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (5)

Row 4: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next. TPS in next, TSS in next, TPS in next, TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (6)

Row 5: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next. TPS in next, TSS in next, TPS in next, TSS in next, TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (7)

Row 6: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next, TPS in next. * TSS in next, TPS in next * repeat between * * to end. TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (8)

Row 7: Skip first vertical bar. YO, TSS in next, * TPS in next, TSS in next * repeat between * * to end. TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (9)

Rows 8 – 99: alternate previous two rows. (101 sts at the end of row 99)

Row 100: Skip first vertical bar. TSS in next, (no increase this time) TPS in next. * TSS in next, TPS in next * repeat between * * to end. TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (101)

And now we start decreasing for the other side…

Row 101: Skip first vertical bar. TSS2TOG, * TPS in next, TSS in next * repeat between * * to end. TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (100)

Row 102: Skip first vertical bar. TSS2TOG, TPS in next. * TSS in next, TPS in next * repeat between * * to end. TSS in outside two loops of last st. Backward pass: Chain-1, * yarn over, pull through two loops. * repeat between * * to end. (99)

Rows 103 – 197: alternate previous two rows. (4 sts at the end of row 197)

Row 198: Slst2tog, sl st in next st, sl st in outside two loops of last st. (3)

Fasten off and weave in all ends on the body of the shawl. (I like to leave the beginning tail and the ending tail for securing the tassels.)

Cut your remaining yarn for tassels (here’s my favorite method). Attach tassels at each end of shawl, and weave in all ends. You are done!

I hope you love your new Tunisian Honeycomb shawl, and the Whims Merino yarn. When you’re finished I’d love to see a photo of yours. Tag me by using @HeartHookHome on Instagram and Twitter, or share in the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community on Facebook.

    1. It is not 100 rows...it is 198 rows. You have 99 increase rows, then 99 decrease rows.The overall width of this shawl is 88" after blocking...64" before blocking. At the halfway point (row 99) your shawl should be measuring approximately 32" wide, if it is not, then you can continue adding increase rows until it does.
    2. My yarn must be making a difference. I'm using a DK yarn, but it's wool/acrylic. At row 100, I was at 21 or 22 inches. Glad to know I can just keep going until I reach the desired width without messing anything up. And thank you for answering my question about the pattern. The website pictures and what I've done so far appear to match. I'm looking forward to seeing the end result. I just hope it's long enough. I was trying to go for an oversized look, but I'm not sure this will be what I envisioned. Maybe blocking will help. If I widen the spine (with more repeats of the "no increase or decrease row"), would that mess up the pattern or would it make the shawl drape better?
      1. If you add more "no increase/decrease" rows, then that will flatten out the bottom of the shawl as well...not giving it the triangular shape but more of a trapezoidal shape.
  1. If the honeycomb stitch alternates TSS and TPS, why doesn’t this pattern reflect that? Every row appears to start with a TSS. That doesn’t make sense.
    1. On the increase rows (rows 2-98) you are increasing at that beginning edge...which is why it always starts with a yarn over and tss.
  2. I'm just starting to read through the pattern but am wondering - When you say - TSS in outside two loops of last st. - do you mean both strands of the last St? The same way you would if you were working a regular piece of crochet that you place your last St in top of 'starting ch' from prev row. ???
  3. I’m working on the decrease for this beautiful shawl and I’m confused by the stitches. I’m on row 99 (101 stitches) and Beginning the decrease, but after TSS2TOG I end up on a purl stitch, but directions say “TPS in next” which puts a purl in a purl stitch. Is this accurate, or have I messed up somewhere?
    1. Hi! Did you accidently skip row 100 which is just a straight honeycomb row, no increases or decreases? Decreasing starts on row 101. I hope this helps!
  4. Just wanted to let you know that I love this pattern. I make shawls for nursing home residents and this is now on my todo list. I am just waiting for the yarn I ordered to arrive .
  5. Hi! I love the texture of this shawl, and can't wait to try it. However, I'm new to Tunisian crochet. My Tunisian hooks are about 10 inches long. Will they work for this project, or do I need longer hooks? Thanks!
    1. Hi Pat! You will be fine for most of the pattern...it will just be for the middle part when it could get tight squeezing all those stitches on, but honestly, I think it is do-able.
  6. i love your pattern that I saw via Furls Blog Hop. As you say your pattern is free is there a way to print it without the ads? No only does printing the ads waste paper it makes the pattern info smaller on the page. Sincerely
    1. Hey Angela I always cheat and cut at paste this into my pages doc then delete all ads and pics I don't need and voila pattern with just what you need with no waste :)
