Busy Bee Honeycomb Scarf- Free Crochet Pattern
Comfy, warm and pretty scarf. This pattern is similar to a honeycomb, in the way that it forms pockets. Even if those pockets are more diamond like instead of octagon shaped. I love the way this turned out! This is a more advanced pattern to make.
Note: This pattern alternates from front to back posts each row. Every other row of trfp (triple crochet front post) alternate between going in front of the first two trfp made or behind the first two trfp made. When behind the first two trfp made it is like crocheting in a sandwich because you are between the stitches you just made and the stitches in the previous row.
Look at how much pattern and texture there is in the Honeycomb stitch.
ch-A chain doesn’t go through a stitch. A chain is made by starting with a slip stitch or if you are in the middle of a piece and it calls for a chain you yarn over and pull through the one loop that is on the hook.
sc- Single crochet: Put hook through stitch, yarn over, pull through the stitch, yarn over pull through two, leaving one loop on the hook
dc- Double crochet yarn over, go through stitch, yarn over, pull through the stitch, yarn over, pull through two, yarn over pull through last two, leaving one loop on the hook
tr=Triple crochet- similar to double crochet, but you yarn over twice instead of once, then, go through the stitch, yarn over pull through the stitch, yarn over pull through two, yarn over pull through two and then yarn over and pull the last two off. You should have one left on your hook.
fp=Front post this means that instead of crocheting in the top of the stitch like you normally do, you put your hook around the front of the dc post and create your stitch there. (It’s a lot like weaving with your hook, around the post, starting on the front side of your piece.)
bp= Back post, insert hook around the back of the post instead of crocheting on the top. You have the piece facing you but crochet on the opposite side. This makes a ridge on the front side.
dcbp and trfp are combining the stitch and where that stitch is made. So, dcbp means to double crochet in the back post.
Trfp means to triple crochet around the front post.
