Granny Hexagon Motif

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Yarn (use whatever you like, but we’re big fans of worsted weight!); you’ll need 3 colors
  • Crochet hook (make sure you use something that works with your yarn weight)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Abbreviations

  • Ch – Chain
  • Dc – Double crochet
  • Sl st – Slip stitch
  • Rnd – Round
  • Instructions

    Rnd 1: Start by making a magic ring or ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring. Ch 2 (these do not count as a stitch), and then 12 dc into the ring. Close with a slip stitch or a neat join and weave in ends.

    Rnd 2: Join the next color yarn into any stitch. Ch 3 (count as one dc) and then 1 dc into that same stitch. This is the half of the first point.

    Skip a stitch, then 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc into every other stitch around the circle (in the photo above, the arrows indicate where you’ll work your points). When you have completed five points, make 2 dc and 1 ch into the first stitch and join with a sl st to complete the round. Cut your yarn and weave in ends.

    Rnd 3: Join your next color yarn into a chain space at one of the points. Ch 3 (these count as a dc), dc into the same chain space.

    *Skip 1 ch space, 3 dc into the next ch space (This should be the gap between your starting point the next one, making a flat side of the hexagon). 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc into ch space at the next point. Repeat from * 4 more times.
