I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Let’s be busy little bees and make our own honeycombs.

Honeycombs are a wonderful way of livening up the surface of a blanket, and moreover form a stronger textile than typical squares due to their proportionately shorter and angled sides.  To this point, the honeycomb blanket is a great application of this wonderful technique. The blankets made in this way have a wonderful texture that is also great for interacting with color variations. Indeed, the inherent variability makes them  wonderful for decorating any room, in pretty much any style.

This eye-catching stitch will be perfect for many kinds of projects, like for example throws, scarves or ponchos. It is also a perfect choice of stitch for blankets! Although the shell stitch always looks interesting, this one is very impressive with honeycomb cells around the shells, and it is not so complicated as it looks. Regardless of the size of your project, it will always look stunning. You can use this pattern for big surfaces like blankets, but also for scarves, cowls or hats.
