How to Crochet the Honeycomb Lattice Stitch Pattern

eHow may earn compensation through affiliate links in this story.

The honeycomb lattice stitch is a single crochet background with a series of strategically placed front-post triple (or treble) crochet stitches worked across the surface to form a lattice, a series of connecting Xs. The fabric is dense with little drape and works well for a pillow, basket or purse. Use it as an accent on a jacket or afghan.
