It’s Bee-youtiful!

Crochet honeycomb patterns vary a lot in difficulty and looks, so it’s important to choose one you’ll like working on and looking at. In the Crochet Roundup section you’ll find lots of examples, many of which are available as free crochet patterns.


To make a honeycomb pattern you will use various yarn types and corresponding hook sizes, but remember that yarn weight will highly impact the final effect. You can find these informations on the yarn label, so be sure that you know how to find them! To make sure the stitch looks exactly like you want it to, I recommend you making a crochet swatch first.

How does honeycomb pattern look like?

The basic unit of honeycomb pattern is a hexagon – a shape that has six sides. Hexagons fit together perfectly, connecting with each other to make bigger and bigger planes.

How to crochet honeycomb pattern?

It depends on what you’re going to make and how! For example, you can use crochet honeycomb stitch pattern that you work in rows, but what you make with it is your choice. Below you’ll see dishcloths, blankets, home decor items… the list goes on!

On the other hand, you can try making honeycomb pattern with individual crochet hexagons and joining them together. It’s a great choice for those of you, who prefer working with smaller pieces and combining them at the end.
