This stitch is made up of a 2-row repeat.

Abbreviations:

Return Pass (RP): Yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook (the first loop on the hook). Now yarn over, pull through two loops (loops 2 and 3 on your hook). Continue to yarn over, pull through two loops until you have only one loop on your hook.

Tunisian Simple Stitch (TS): Insert your hook behind the front loop of the vertical stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop.

PS: Reverse yarn over (loop the yarn in front of your hook) and hold the loop down on your hook with your index finger. Insert your hook into the stitch, and release the reverse loop, and lay the yarn in front of the stitch. Yarn over, and pull up a loop.

Stitch:

Chain an odd number of stitches.

Cast-on:

Insert your hook into the second chain from hook. Yarn over, and pull the hook out of the stitch. You should now have two loops on your hook. 

Go to the next stitch, insert your hook into the  stitch and yarn over, then pull up a loop. You’ll now have three loops on your hook. Insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. You’ll now have four loops on your hook. Continue adding loops to your hook until you have cast on one loop for every stitch of your chain.

Complete a RP.

Row 1: Beginning on the second stitch of the row, PS, TS, PS, TS, PS, TS … repeat until you reach the last stitch of the row. Cast on the last stitch of your loop (insert your hook into the stitch and pull up a loop).

Complete a RP.

Row 1: Beginning on the second stitch of the row, TS, PS, TS, PS, TS, PS … repeat until you reach the last stitch of the row. Cast on the last stitch of your loop (insert your hook into the stitch and pull up a loop).

Complete a RP.

Repeat Row 1 and 2 until you complete a the length you want, then complete a bind off.

Bind off: I normally like to work a slip-stitch bind off when I work a Honeycomb Stitch, but this is entirely up to you.

Slip stitch bind off: Insert your hook into the second vertical stitch like you would is you were crocheting a knit stitch. Yarn over and pull your hook up. You’ll have two loops on your hook. Slip stitch so that you are left with one loop.

And that’s it! Test out the stitch and let me know what you think!

Happy Crocheting!
