Honeycomb Cowl – Tunisian Crochet Pattern

Are you looking for a Tunisian crochet pattern that works up quickly? With the Honeycomb Cowl pattern you can practice your stitchwork and have a finished product in no time.

The Honeycomb Cowl is worked in the honeycomb stitch, which is a combination of TSS & TPS stitches alternatively worked across the row. If you are unfamiliar with these stitches, or are new to Tunisian, don’t worry. I’ll walk you through everything.



Tunisian crochet is like crocheting but with the finished look of knit. The main difference is that you pull up all your loops onto the hook and then you work them off (like with knitting).
