Thanks to Knit Picks for providing the yarn for today’s post!
So today I have something fun for you!
Today I am sharing a pattern as part of my very first Crochet a Long! (CAL – to those who actually know about these things – it is new to me!). It’s my first time – I have done some crochet pattern making before but never a hexagon! I had so much fun putting this one together though.
So the deal with a CAL is that there are 8 different fab bloggers sharing 8 different hexagon patterns over the next two weeks. One per day. Then at the end of those two weeks, we will be sharing projects you can make using the hexagons!
The hexagons are all the same size, made with worsted yarn, so you can mix or match them for the different projects, or even do multiple hexagons in the projects!
My hexagon is the Star Lily Hexagon. Isn’t that fun? I think it looks like a little flower!
Here’s how to crochet it:
6.0mm crochet hook
3 Colors of Worsted Weight Yarn – KnitPicks Brava – I used Solstice, Dove Heather, and Seashell
Triple Crochet Bobble – TCB – In one stitch do a Triple Crochet but don’t pull the yarn through the last two stitches on the hook. Repeat with two more TC stitches in the same stitch. YO and pull through all four loops on the hook.
TC – Triple Crochet
HTC – Half Triple Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
SC – Single Crochet
SL ST – Slip Stitch.
CH – Chain
Ch 4. Sl st in beginning chain to form a loop.
Round 1: Chain two, dc in loop, 10 more double crochets in loop = 12 DC around. Join with slip stitch to first DC.
Round 2: Chain 3. Crochet 2 TR in that same stitch, except for last loop of the triple. Finish by drawing through all four loops. Triple Bobble made. If your bobble is pointing to the back just push it to the front with your finger.
*SC in next stitch, Chain 5, Slip Stitch in same stitch as SC. Triple Bobble in next stitch, Repeat from * around loop. Connect with slip stitch to first bobble.
6 Triple Bobbles and 6 Chain Loops made.
Round 3: Skip first bobble, SC in first Ch5 Loop. Working in same loop, crochet 1HDC, 1 DC, 1 HTC, 1 TC, 1 HTC, 1 DC, 1 HDC, 1 SC.
*Skip next bobble. Work SC, HDC, DC, HTC, TC, HTC, DC, HDC, SC in chain 5 loop. Repeat from * around. Slip Stitch in first Ch 5 Loop. 6 Flower Petals made.
Round 4: Chain 3. Triple Crochet in first petal stitch. Working across petal stitches, DC, HDC, SC, Chain 1, in next stitch SC, HDC, DC *TC except leave the last loop on the hook. TC in space between petals, except for last loop. TC in next petal stitch. Pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Working across petal, crochet DC, HDC, SC, Ch 1, SC, HDC, DC* repeat between ** four more times.
Crochet TC except for last loop, slip stitch with beginning stitch, pulling through all loops on the hoop.
Round 5: Chain 1. SC in next 3 stitches. In Ch 1 space, *DC Ch1 DC. SC in next 6 chains. Repeat four more times. In Ch1 space, DC CH1 DC, SC in next 2 chains. Slip Stitch to beginning SC and finish off.
Weave in all ends.
The whole thing goes together pretty quickly! And the color changes are fun, they make the flower stand out. But you could totally do the whole hexagon in one color and it would look great that way too!
You’ll want to check out all the other patterns over the next two weeks – we’ll be adding them to the links here as each person posts!
