The Honeypot Pincushion Free Crochet Pattern by Laura Jaworski

Skill Level: Easy


Size:


This honeypot is approximately 4.5 inches tall and approximately 3.5 inches wide.


Supplies:


Worsted weight yarn (blue, yellow, white)

4.0 mm hook

Needle for sewing

Polyester or other stuffing

Stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to count rounds

Scissors

Straight pins


Abbreviations:


MC = Magic circle (see pattern notes)

St = Stitch

Ch = Chain

Sc = Single crochet stitch

Hdc = Half double crochet stitch

DC = Double crochet stitch

Puff = Puff stitch (see pattern notes)

Ss = Slip stitch

Rep = Repeat

2tog = Crochet two together, also known as decrease (invisible decrease preferred)

FLO = Front loop only

BLO = Back loop only

Ch1 = Chain one

F/o = Finish off


A note about the magic circle:


Also known as a magic loop or magic ring. If you prefer not to use a magic circle, simply create a slip knot, chain two, and begin by placing your first round of stitches into the first chain. Pull tightly on your tail to close the gap and continue with the pattern as written. Once you have worked a few more rounds, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside to secure your piece and close any remaining gap.


A note about working in a spiral:


This honeypot is worked in a spiral which means that each round continues into the next without a slip stitch and chain.

A note about counting stitches: Using a stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to mark the first stitch of each round will help you track your progress. Move the marker as you complete each round.

A note about FLO & BLO:


For the front loop only round, you will work all of your stitches into the front loop of each stitch. For the back loop only round, you will work all of your stitches into the back loop of each stitch. For all other rounds, work into both loops of each stitch.


A note about increasing and decreasing:


For an increase, crochet two stitches in the same stitch. For a decrease, crochet two stitches together, preferably using the invisible decrease method.


A note about reading the pattern:


Before beginning a pattern, it helps to read through the abbreviations list. If you need help with a technique, refer to a written or video tutorial, or keep a crochet book handy. Below is a round from the pattern, followed by a detailed description of the instructions.


Rnd 4: 2sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (24)


Beginning round four, add one single crochet into each of the next two stitches. Add two single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat the pattern of one single crochet in each of the next two stitches followed by an increase until you reach the end of round four. There should be 24 stitches in your completed round.

A note about the puff stitch:


To crochet the puff stitch for this pattern, yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch space, yarn over, pull up a loop, *yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop* two more times (7 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook. Complete each puff stitch with a chain one.


A note about the invisible finish technique:


For the invisible finish technique, complete the last stitch of your pattern. Snip your yarn, leaving a tail long enough for sewing. Pull the loop on your hook, drawing the snipped yarn tail free. Next, thread the yarn tail onto your needle and bring it through both loops of the stitch following the next stitch. Bring your yarn tail through the back loop of the last stitch of your final round, pulling until youโ€™ve created a v that is comparable in size to the rest of your stitches. Weave your yarn tail on the backside of your piece to secure.

Putting It All Together


Attaching the honey & stuffing the pot (see photos):


Begin by lining the honey up with rnd 14 of your pot; you should have 30 workable stitches on both pieces. Next, thread your yellow yarn tail onto your needle and begin whip stitching the two pieces together, making sure to sew through both loops of round 5 for the honey, and the back loop only of round 14 for the pot. When you have worked halfway around, begin stuffing the pot; you can continue stuffing as you go. Continue sewing and stuffing. When youโ€™ve sewed all the way around, weave your yarn tail neatly under the edges of the honey, or back and forth through the stitch holes of your pot to secure, making sure not to warp the shape of your crochet.

Attaching the honey drip (see photos):


Position your honey drip over and around the rim of your pot & pin it into place. Using your yellow yarn tail, sew the honey drip to the pot, then bring both yarn tails out of a stitch hole on the bottom of the pot, tie the tails together, and hide them in the pot. Alternatively, use hot glue to carefully secure the honey drip to the pot.

Attaching the lid (optional, see photos):


Stuff the lid lightly then pin it into place at an angle on top of your pot. Using your blue yarn tail, sew the lid to the pot, then weave the yarn tail in & out of the stitch holes to secure, making sure not to warp the shape of your crochet. You can leave a yarn tail from the honey or honey drip free to knot your lid tail with if you like. Alternatively, use hot glue to carefully secure the lid to the pot.
