The Beehive Stitch is a basic pattern that uses the front post double crochet (FPdc) to create a nicely textured fabric. This is a stitch that’s great for afghans and washcloths.
Foundation Chain: Multiples of 2 + 1
- Prep Row: Starting in 4th ch from hook, work 1 dc in each ch across row.
- Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), skip st, *1 FPdc in next dc, 1 dc in next dc, rep from * across, ending 1 dc in top of turning ch, turn.
- Row 2: Ch 3, skip first st, *1 FPdc in next FPdc, 1 dc in next dc, rep from * ending with 1 dc in top of turning ch, turn.
