A Basic Crochet Hexagon

Its been a minute since I did a quick and free crochet pattern for you!

This one is all about the simple yet beautiful, basic hexagon. There is so much you can do with the basic hexagon. Some of my favorite crocheters on Instagram make some gorgeous blankets with hexagons.

Any tips I can offer for this pattern will be at the end so scroll until you see “TIPS”


Terms Needed To Know

– double crochet; dc

– chain

– magic circle

Items Needed

Your favorite yarn, hook and your beautiful self.


Round 1: Form a magic circle, and crochet 12 double crochets (one of these will be your chain), Close the magic circle and slip stitch round together.

Round 2: Chain 2. In the next space add one double crochet. In the space in between the posts of the next two stitches add this stitch sequence; dc, chain, dc. In the next two stitches add one double crochet. Then repeat increasing sequence. Repeat in the round.

Round 3: Chain 2. In the next two stitches add one double crochet. In the chain space created by the round previous add the same stitch sequence; dc, chain, dc. In the next four stitches add one double crochet. Repeat in the round.

Round 4: Round 4 is almost identical to round 3, except for the number of stitches between the hexagon’s corners. This is round 4 so there should be 6 double crochet stitches between the corners (not including the stitches of the corners). Finish the round and tie off your end or finish with an invisible seam.

TIPS

– This hexagon pattern is adjustable for size. If you’d like a larger hexagon, add more rounds. I suggest working with a thick yarn if you want a larger hexagon so you don’t have to add a lot of rounds.

– I have found once I go past 5 rounds with a worsted weight yarn the hexagon no longer lays flat and is harder to work with.
