Tunisian Honeycomb Crochet Stitch Tutorial

The Tunisian Honeycomb stitch is a simple stitch repeat that when offset creates a gorgeous, honeycomb texture. We will combine the Tunisian Simple Stitch with the Tunisian Purl Stitch to create the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch. Say that three times fast. šŸ˜‰

Grab your Tunisian hook to practice, and find the video tutorial below. I’m using an H/5mm with a worsted weight/Aran yarn.

To start a project using Tunisian Honeycomb, you’ll chain as wide as your desired piece, or pattern, dictates. I like to do the first row with Tunisian Simple crochet before starting the simple/purl repeat used throughout the rest of the pattern.

Tunisian Simple Crochet

On row two, start with a Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) first, then do a Tunisian Purl Stitch (TPS). Alternate between the two stitches across the row. End the row by going through both sides of the last stitch from the previous row as you normally do with Tunisian.

To start your backward pass, yarn over and chain one, then yarn over and pull through two loops at a time until you reach the end.

Crocheting the Tunisian Honeycomb Crochet Stitch

In this photo I have the top arrows showing purl stitches (where the yarn comes from the back of the stitch) and the bottom arrows are pointing to the simple stitches (where the yarn comes straight up out of the stitch below).

Purl and Simple Tunisian Stitches

To start the next row, Tunisian Purl around the Tunisian Simple Stitch directly below, offsetting your stitches so that the simple stitches are worked into the purl stitches, and the purl stitches are worked into the simple stitches. Continue alternating in rows starting with purl then simple, purl then simple until the desired height is reached – or until your pattern tells you to stop. Here’s the video, as promised. I hope you love the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch!

  1. Ashlea, Have you figured out a method of increasing the honeycomb stitch? Since it required 2 stitches that are offset, I'm not sure if it is possible. I'm working on a Tunisian cardigan and I might want to increase the sleeves at the top. If there is not a way, I can just make them rectangles and put some decreases at the cuff.
  2. I really love the look of this honeycomb stitch but for the life of me I cannot find a picture of how the 'wrong side' of the work is supposed to look and it is driving me nuts. Would it be possible for you to upload one for this work?
    1. Backside appearance: The rows and columns are spaced evenly so the back is very flat and symmetrical. It looks like lined up and stacked purl bumps, similar to graph paper. It does not have the tall, separated rows of the T. knit stitch. The fabric made with Tunisian honeycomb stitch is thin but dense. It looks good both on front and back.

    1. I have been crocheting for 50 + yrs. I don't know All there is about Crochet (as it is always being add to) My experience level is Very experienced, I have made a beautiful Geometric graph design in simple tunisian stitch, with many color changes ( had avg. of 80 color change yarns coming off of the piece) In reply to your question, I don't believe you can make increase stitches with Tunisian crochet. You should crochet the beginning chain to the finished length of the piece. I hope this helps.
