If your crochet project has four sides, you will have 2 sides with very deep valleys and 2 sides that have a zig zag shape. You can either choose to leave these gaps, fill them with half hexagons or do a bit of both like I did for the Lexie Hexie Blanket pattern.

How to Crochet a Half Granny Square Hexagon.

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used DK yarn in 5 colours for this tutorial. The personality of this crochet hexagon will change drastically depending on the chosen colour palette. Moreover, this piece is perfect for a stash busting project!
  • Corresponding hook. I wanted my sunburst granny hexagon a bit loose so instead of a 4 mm crochet hook, I opted for a 5 mm hook instead.
  • Scissors and a darning needle
