Tunisian Honeycomb Tss / Tps


⇐ Back to Fancy Stitches
This stitch creates a dense, textured honeycomb pattern and is made by working with the Tss (Simple Stitch) and Tps (Purl Sitch) stitches alternatively throughout two rows. This is one of my favorite stitches to make and is really simple to do.

Instructions
To Begin: Chain in multiples of two to desired length.

Foundation: Row one forward: Insert hook in next chain space and pull up a loop. * Insert hook into next, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * keeping all chains on hook. Row one return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.   

Stitch:
Row two forward: * Pull yarn to front and moving hook over strand insert hook under next vertical bar. Keeping strand under hook, move it to the back and then yarn over and pull up a loop (Tps). Insert hook under next vertical bar and pull up a loop (Tss). Repeat from * to end. Row two return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Row three forward: * Insert hook under next and pull up a loop (Tss). Pull yarn to front and moving hook over strand insert hook under next vertical bar. Keeping strand under hook, move it to the back and then yarn over and pull up a loop (Tps). Repeat from * working a Tss in last. Row three return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Repeat from row two for pattern.
