Week 10 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Honeycomb stitch closeup

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Honeycomb stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 121 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. I used Grundl Nizza 02 for this piece a 100% cotton yarn with a very pretty marled look that also has an almost ombre finish to it as it worked up, getting brighter and fading to create a lovely final look . Unfortunately this yarn has now been discontinued.

The Honeycomb is a challenging stitch and is undoubtably one of the harder stitches within the FrankenScrap. I would say that it is important that you really focus on getting your stitches placed correctly in the first few rows. Once you get the hang of where your hook needs to go in order to bring your spike stitches together, it will work out just fine.

The Honeycomb stitch is a slow stitch to make, but the finished look is simply stunning. I’ve never seen another stitch like it. It would look amazing no matter what type of pattern you chose to use it for, giving plenty of delicate surface texture.

You will need a total of 121 meters of yarn for this piece if you are sticking to my gauge of 16sc in 10cm, 19 rows in 10cm

Abbreviations

  • Ch = Chain
  • Yo = Yarn over
  • St = Stitch
  • Sk = Skip
  • Sp = Space
  • Sc = Single crochet

Start by making a foundation ch of 43 with a 4mm hook or the hook you had to use for your week 2 Single Crochet piece.

I recommend watching the video for this stitch to see where your hook placements need to be.

Row 1. In the 2nd ch from your hook make a sc. Make a sc in each st across – 42 st

Row 2. Turn and ch1. Make a sc in the first st and in each st across – 42 sc

The first 2 rows of the Honeycomb stitch

Row 3. Turn and ch1. Make a sc in the first st. *Next make a spike st 2 rows below – insert hook into the next st 2 rows below. Yo and pull up a loop to the height of your last st. Yo and pull through. Make a sc in the next st*

Making your spike stitches in row 3 of the Honeycomb stitch

Repeat between *and* the last st of the row is a spike (pictured below) – 42 st

Last stitch of row 3 of the Honeycomb is a spike stitch

Row 4. Turn and ch1. Make a sc in the first st of the row. *Make a sc, but working in the 2 spike loops. You will be working in the left hand loop of your 1st spike stitch and in the right hand loop of the next spike stitch (if you are left handed it will be the right hand loop of the 1st spike and the left hand loop of the 2nd spike)

The picture below shows how you need to insert your hook into the loops of the 2 spike stitches (watch the video above if you are struggling to envision this)

Making a sc in the 2 spike loops of the Honeycomb

Make a sc in the next st* repeat between *and* and make a sc in the last st – 42st

Row 4 of the Honeycomb stitch

Row 5. Turn and ch1. *Make a spike st 2 rows below making sure you come through the middle of the spike st on the other side (watch the video above if you’re not sure what that looks like). Make a sc in next st* repeat between *and*. Make a sc in the last st of the row.

Row 5 spike stitches of the Honeycomb stitch

Row 6. Turn and ch1. Make a sc in the first and 2nd st. *Next make a sc working through the 2 loops of spike stitches like you did in row 4. Make a sc in the next st* repeat between *and* Make a sc in the last st of the row

Row 6 of the Honeycomb stitch

Rows 7 – 56 . Repeat rows 3-6

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 42 stitches wide and 56 rows high, which counts as 56 stitches high for joining purposes since you only have sc rows. You can see how the pieces are joined together here. If you are following my gauge, then your piece will measure 26cm wide and 30cm high. Remember this is just a size indication and if your gauge is consistent throughout, then your pieces will fit together nicely even if your sizes do not match with mine.

The Honeycomb piece should be joined to the top left hand corner of week 5’s Even Berry piece, all the way down the left hand side of week 4’s Lemon stitch and be joined with 22 rows of week 1’s Rug stitch.

The layout below shows how your pieces should be attached in relation to each other.
