How to Crochet A Basic Solid Hexagon

Crochet solid hexagon pattern

Apart from the solid granny square, I have to say that the crochet solid hexagon is my new favourite way to make blankets. It’s easy, fast and gives my geometric loving self so much happiness! I’m currently working on a Hexie Baby Blanket (pattern release later this month) and a Hex-Temp Blanket.

Crochet Basic Solid Hexagon Pattern.

Materials:

  • Yarn
  • Hook
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle

Stitches and Terms Used:

  • ch (chain)
  • sl st (slip stitch)
  • sc (single crochet)
  • dc (double crochet)
  • rpt (repeat)

Notes:

  • You can use any type of yarn and corresponding hook to make these hexagons. What you’re making is what will determine the materials you use. Similarly, the gauge and size of the crochet hexagon will depend on what you’re making and what material and hook size you use.
  • Since i want a pronounced hole in the middle of my crochet hexagon, I begin with a ch 5, joining to first ch to form a ring. You can use less chains if you want a less pronounced hole or alternatively start also use a magic circle. You can use this tutorial to learn how to work and secure the magic circle.
  • The ch 2 at the beginning of each round counts as 1 dc. I use a ch 2 because I have lose chains and tight stitches. You can also use a ch 3 if you prefer.

Instructions:

Round 1: Ch 5, join to first ch to form a ring. Ch 2, dc in ring, ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2)5 times in the ring. Join to the 2nd ch of beginning ch 2 with a sl st. You should have 6 sets of 2 dc+ch 2. Make sure to count.
