I crocheted this hexagon while waiting with my brother Darrell at the Dr's office.
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- I hook
- I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- the 2 chains at the beginning of Rnd 1 does not count as a st
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in same st, *ch 2, 2 dc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * 4 more times. Ch 2, 2 dc in next dc. Join with a sl st to top of ch 3. (24 dc and 6 ch-2 spaces)
Rnd 3: Ch 3, *skip next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next dc, dc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * 4 more times. Skip next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next dc, dc in next dc. Join as before.
Rnd 4: Ch 3, dc in next dc, *skip next dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next dc, dc in next 4 dc. Repeat from * 4 more times. Skip next dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next dc, dc in next 2 dc. Join as before.
Rnd 5: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, *skip next 2 dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next 2 dc, dc in next 6 dc. Repeat from * 4 more times. Skip next 2 dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in ch-2 space, skip next 2 dc, dc in next 3 dc. Join as before. End off.

Happy late birthday! 50 is the new 30! Just my luck, I'm almost 60! :-O I'm almost finished with my hexagon granny.ReplyDelete
Did you get any comments from people who saw you crocheting at the doctor? I always seem to get interest in waiting rooms.ReplyDelete
Thank you Charlotte. :)ReplyDelete
Katherine - I didn't get any comments from anyone because believe it or not, no one else was there. Just me and the receptionist. :)
Pretty motif Debi. :-)ReplyDelete
Hi Debi! Gotta love those hexes, they are so much fun and you can use them in all kinds of projects. Sorry I missed your birthday so I send you a Happy Belated Birthday wish for many more. Hope you enjoyed your special day and that you got your cake too :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for the birthday wish Susanne. :)
oh I really like this hexagon!
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern with us!I hope your brother is fine and everything is okay!
I send my best wishes and many Greetings,
Very nice! I tried another hexagon pattern some time back and it came out so tiny! I would have to make a million to get anything from it. Will have to give yours a try! I take crochet wherever I go too! Sure helps to pass the time in a productive way. Best wishes, TammyReplyDelete
Looks like I missed your birthday too. I hope it was a happy one.ReplyDelete
That's so pretty Debi, I don't think I've tried a hex shape yet.ReplyDelete
This hexgon looks like it'll be fun to handle. Do you keep making hexagons and sew them together or just make the hexagon bigger and bigger?ReplyDelete
Hi Roberta. Both ways would work to make up a nice afghan.Delete
Love this hexagon!ReplyDelete
I want to make this bigger but not sure how. Can anyone figure it out?ReplyDelete
I haven't made a larger motif, but I think it can be done. Just continue to increase the dc's along the sides while skipping the 2 dc's before each corner shell. :)Delete
I believe that I found a mistake in round 5. After the 4th repeat, shouldn't it say "skip next 2 dc, (3dc, ch2, 3dc) in ch-2 sp, skip next 2dc, dc in next 3 dc?" Maybe I am wrong, but can you check to make sure that this is correct?ReplyDelete
Hi there. Yes - it should say "skip nest 2 dc" and then follow the rest. Thank you for helping me out with that. :)Delete
