The Honey Honey Ponchette is so fun to make with easy row repeats and a super cute outcome. This adorable Ponchette is made in two pieces then stitched together. The first panel is the Honeycomb, and the second a classic Simple Chevron. This shawl uses two colours of Small Stuff from The Hook Nook and is worked back and forth across the row. Honey, Honey you are going to love this pattern.

5.0mm crochet hook (or what hook you need to obtain gauge)
Gauge is important in this pattern. If your gauge is too small go up a hook size, if your gauge is too large, go down a hook size.
13 HDC X 8rows = 4”x4” (10cm x 10cm) square

The Chevron panel measures 13 ½” wide x 39 ½”long

The CH 1 on the Honeycomb panel does not count as a stitch; the Ch3 on the Chevron Panel does count as a stitch
Everyone has their own way of changing colours but I find on your last yarn over before completing your last DC of the row, changing colours there gives you a super clean transition.
ST - Stitch
SLST - Slip Stitch
CH - Chain
SC - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
DC3TOG - Double Crochet 3 together (decrease)
TR - Triple Crochet
DC3TOG - Double Crochet 3 Together
Yarn over insert your hook into the first ST, yarn over pull through, yarn over pull through two but do not complete the DC. Yarn over and insert your hook into the next ST, yarn over and pull through, yarn over and pull through two, you will now have three loops on your hook. Yarn over insert your hook into the third ST, yarn over pull through, yarn over pull through two, you will now have 4 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops.

Fold the Honeycomb Panel width wise with the starting chain at the neckline and the scallop along the bottom edge, with the right side on the inside.
Fold your Chevron panel in half lengthwise, with the right side facing in and line it up along the Honeycomb panel as shown below. You should have the right sides facing in on both panels. Then you will SLST the length of the Honeycomb to the Chevron up to 20 rows on each side then sew in your tails and flip inside out and you are done!!
