I have been loving hexagons lately. A few bloggers and I did a fun crochet-along with them at the beginning of the year, and I have been hooked since. I have a few project ideas in the works, but first I needed to write a simple hexagon pattern to use for them. This solid hexagon crochet pattern is easy to work up, and has a great shape. Hopefully it will be useful to you with your own hexagon projects!
It’s a pretty straight-forward pattern, but I have included a photo tutorial anyway. Once you work it a few times, it’s easy to make tons of them.
This pattern is a perfect beginner’s pattern and only uses 2 stitches, the half double crochet (hdc) and slip stitch (sl st). You can find a video tutorial for the hdc stitch here. (Don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel.)
What you need:
- G hook
- Medium Weight Yarn ( I am using KnitPicks Dishie 100% cotton in Navy, Swan and Flamingo)
Abbreviations: (American Terms)
Ch – Chain
Hdc – Half Double Crochet
Sl st – Slip stitch
Each hexie is approximately 4″ across from corner to corner.
