Crochet Pattern Basic Solid Hexagon Photo Tutorial

     The hexagon is one of the basic shapes in crochet and just like the classic granny square, once mastered, it will allow you to create wonderful items, from blankets and home decor to bags and afghans.




     There are many variations and patterns, but today I will show you how to crochet a basic solid hexagon.



     I like this pattern because it's easy and quick and I can crochet it while watching a movie without having to count stitches and rows. 

     Pin it for later.


     I used it to make the honeycomb baby blanket and I am sure i will use it again as it's such a versatile pattern.

The Stitches  

- magic ring - tutorial here
- chain ( ch)
- slip stitch (sl st)
- double crochet (dc)

 The Pattern

Start with a magic ring


Round 1: 

Ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc into the ring,ch 2, (2 dc, ch2) 5 times into the ring, sl st. Do not turn, pull the yarn tail to close the magic ring and weave in the end.



You should have 6 clusters divided by chains of 2.






  

Round 2: 



Ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc into the next stitch.


You have now reached the chain of two from previous round in which you will create the corner: dc into the chain, chain 2, dc again into the chain.







     Work 1 dc into next 2 stitches then create the corner ( dc, ch 2, dc) into the chain of 2 from previous round. Continue until the end of the row, closing with a slip stitch. Do not turn.



      You should have 6 clusters of 4 dc each separated by chains of 2.


Round 3:

Ch 3 (count as a dc), 2 dc in the next 2 stitches, once you reach the chain of 2 from previous round, create the corner (dc, ch 2, dc).



Dc in the next 4 stitches, make a corner into the previous corner (dc, ch 2, dc), 4 dc in the next 4 stitches, another corner, continue until the end of the row. You should end with a dc into the last stitch and close with a sl st.

You should have 6 clusters of 6 dc each separated by chain of 2.


Round 4:

Chain 3 (counts as a dc), 3 dc in the next stitches, form the corner into the previous corner (dc, ch 2, dc). continue with dc in each stitch followed by the corner stitches until the end. Sl st and close weaving in the end.

You should end up with 6 clusters of 8 dc separated by chain of 2.







Happy Crafting!
