Crochet Tutorial: How to Crochet the Granny Stitch Hexagon Pattern Step by Step with Photos

     Today I will show you how to crochet the granny hexagon with step by step instructions and photos.



     The granny stitch hexagon is one of the basic shapes used in crochet and uses the same stitches as the granny square except that, instead of clusters of 3 double crochet stitches, I used clusters of 2 double crochet stitches.



     This way, it uses less yarn and the shape is tighter and more defined. It also works up faster as it has less stitches to make.

     If you are looking for a solid hexagon pattern, head over HERE for the step by step tutorial.

Check out how I used the granny hexagon to make an adorable deer baby lovey.

Supplies




- yarn of your choice, my favorite yarn to work right how is Red Heart Super Saver



- crochet hook to match your yarn weight, I use this set for all my designs, it has a hook for every yarn

The Stitches



This pattern uses US terms.

- magic ring (MR) - tutorial here

- chain (ch)

- slip stitch (sl)

- single crochet (sc) 

- double crochet (dc)

The Pattern



     This pattern works in the round without turning. Chain 3 at the beginning of the round counts as a double crochet. 

     It uses the slip stitch to move the yarn near the gaps where the double crochet stitches are worked.

To create the corner: 2dc, ch1, 2dc

Create a magic ring



Round 1: ch3 (counts as a dc), 11dc in the magic ring, sl st in the first dc (which isthe ch3), sl st in the next chain







Round 2: ch3, dc in the gap between the double crochet stitches from previous round, *2dc in the following space*, repeat ** section 10 more times, sl st in the first dc (which is the ch3), sl st in the next chain

 







Round 3: ch3, dc in the space between the clusters of double crochet stitches from previous round, create the corner in the following space between clusters  (2dc, ch1, 2dc), *2dc in the next space between clusters, corner in the following space*, Repeat ** section 4 more times, sl st in the first dc in the round, sl st in following chain


 



 




Round 4: ch3, dc in the space between clusters, create the corner in the ch1 space of the corner from round 3, 2 sets of 2dc in the following 2 spaces between clusters, (now you reach the next corner), create the corner in the ch1 space of the corner from round 3.



Continue making 2dc in each space between clusters and create a corner in each ch1 space of the corner from previous round until you reach the ch3 you made at the beginning of the round, sl st on top of the ch3 and in the following chain to reach the next gap. 







 



     There is no limit on how big you can make the hexagon. For the following rounds follow the rule of making clusters of 2dc in each gap between the clusters in the previous round and create the corner in the ch1 space of the previous corners.
