How To Crochet A Half Hexagon

Crochet Half Hexagon- A free tutorial by Morine's Shop

So, you’ve crocheted your hexagons, joined them to make a blanket but it’s a bit too geometric for your taste. That’s where these crochet half hexagons come into play. You’ll notice that there are two sides of your blanket with shallow valleys and another two sided with really deep ones. This tutorial will teach you how to crochet a half hexagon perfect for filling those deep valleys.

The relationship between a hexagon and a half hexagon

These half hexagons are similar to my crochet basic hexagon pattern, but as opposed to working in rounds, we’ll be working in back and forth rows.

Materials:

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 half hexagons. What you’re making is what will determine the materials you use. Similarly, the gauge and size of the crochet half 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 half hexagon, I begin with a ch 4, 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 or a standing dc if you prefer.
