Crocheted hexagons can be the ideal components of many more complex projects. A series of joined hexagons can create a gorgeous afghan, while a smaller quantity can create delicate doilies. With the knowledge of just a few crochet stitches and a bit of concentration, you will be well on your way to making your own projects with hexagons.
- Skill level:
- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Crochet needle
- Three different colours of yarn
Choose three different yarn colours for your hexagon. Chain four basic crochet stitches with one colour to form a ring. Expand the hole in the middle of the ring with your fingers.
Chain three basic stitches. Join the ring by using a slip stitch at the third stitch of the chain three. Intertwine eleven double crochet stitches into the ring. This should result in twelve stitches resembling spokes.
Pick a new yarn colour and attach it to the project by knotting the yarns.
Chain two stitches and then use one double crochet stitch. In the next stitch, work in a bobble stitch. Then chain one. Repeat ten times, which should return you to the beginning, totalling twelve bobble stitches.
Join them with a slip stitch. Stitch double crochet stitches in between the bobble stitch clusters of the previous row. To start a new colour, pull a loop between two bobble clusters.
Chain three, stitch two double crochet stitches into the same space, then chain one. Stitch three double crochet stitches into the next space, then chain one. Repeat ten more times. You should return to the beginning and have a total of twelve clusters. Finish this section with a slip stitch into the third stitch of this step's initial chain three.
Pull a loop through a space between the double stitch clusters of the previous row to add a new colour. Chain three, then use a slip stitch to connect to the next space between double stitch clusters. Continue to make chain threes, placing them in the gap between the double stitch clusters of the previous round.
Stitch a slip stitch under the nearest chain three loop. Chain three, then double crochet twice. Chain two, then double stitch three times in the same chain three loop. This should form your first corner.
Stitch three double crochet stitches in the next chain three loop. This should make a straight side.
Stitch three double crochet stitches in the next chain three loop, chain two, then double crochet three more times, creating your second corner.
Alternate steps 9 and 10 to make the sides and corners of the hexagon. Use a slip stitch to finish the hexagon.
