I've been crocheting lots of grannies trying to use up some of my yarn and to give me a project that I can tote back and forth to work. I wanted to try a different motif so here is my version of a hexagon. I have crocheted this one in just one color, but I'm thinking of crocheting them in 3 colors. Maybe I'll do a mix - solid hex's, variegated hex's and multi-color hex's. :)
- 4-ply ww acrylic yarn
- I hook
Size: 5" side to side
- beginning shell = (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc)
- shell = (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc)
- ch 3 at beginning of Rnd 1 does not count as a stitch
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, ch 3. *Skip next dc, sc in next dc, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. (6 ch 3 loops)
Rnd 3: Sl st into ch 3 space. Beginning shell in same ch 3 space, ch 1. *Shell in next ch 3 space, ch 1. Repeat from * around. Join with a sl st to top of ch 3.
Rnd 4: Sl st over to ch 2 space. Beginning shell in same ch 2 space. Ch 1, 2 dc in next ch 1 space. *Ch 1, shell in next shell. Ch 1, 2 dc in next ch 1 space. Repeat from * around. Join as before.
Rnd 5: Sl st over to ch 2 space. Beginning shell in same ch 2 space. Ch 1, 2 dc in each ch 1 space across. *Ch 1, shell in next shell. Ch 1, 2 dc in each ch 1 space across. Repeat from * around. Join as before. End off.

Debi, I love this. I will have to do these. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Have a great day.
Thanks glor - I'm glad you like it. :)ReplyDelete
How do you connect the hexagons after you finish them all? They are so sweet :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Carolyn. You can either slip stitch or sc the motifs together. :)Delete
Great. One could just continue the pattern for an afghan without having to join numerous hexagons. a good way to use up left-over yarn .ReplyDelete
Thanks for this easy and fast looking pattern. Do you have a half pattern to share?
How many rounds can be done without it curling?ReplyDelete
