Crochet Basics: Trellis Honeycomb Stitch
Crocheting remains a great way to make clothes and other types of things that you may want to have around the house, like blankets and scarves or baby blankets. It’s a time-consuming process, but the results are always rewarding. Many crocheters call crochet an art form, a passion, a therapy, whatever you want to call it, to me it is the most fun you can have with yarn. This is a calming activity and the fact that you also get to have something to show off at the end with, is pretty awesome. So, let’s continue to create yarn magic, one stitch at a time! Today’s stitch is the Trellis Honeycomb Stitch.
This honeycomb trellis stitch is perfect for cotton yarns or bulky yarns. The stiffer or larger yarns help it hold its shape and keep that open feel with more structure than a lace look.
This stitch works great in a variety of projects and I will post some examples below. It works up quickly with the basic repeat of the pattern, and it just uses a few basic stitches, so an advanced beginner crocheter who has a few projects under their belt can certainly manage this one. This stitch is so quick and easy to make, it’s perfect for beginners. You definitely won’t have a hard time understanding how to make this stitch since it uses the basic stitches only. Learning a new crochet stitch is like a turning new page of the book of your crochet life. In this chapter, we are going to learn how to crochet a honeycomb trellis stitch.
