Favourite Free Crochet Hexagon Patterns

Bees were definitely onto something when they made their hives with hexagons.  I'm currently experimenting with the crochet variety and while not "obsessed" as such, well not yet anyway,  I'm loving them so much that I thought I'd share some of my favourite patterns.

Flower Hexagons:

These intricate (yet easy to crochet) hexagons are a free pattern from Red Heart.  The Stolen Moments crochet throw that I made using these floral hexagons was one of my very first large crochet projects and I love the result so much there's a part of me that's tempted to make another in a different colourway.

Simple Hexagons:

If you're just starting out with crochet, then the simple hexagon tutorial at Crochet Fundamentals is perfect for beginners and is a fabulous way to add a bit of shape to your crochet.  All you need to know is how to make a magic circle, double crochet, chain and slip stitch and if you're stuck, the tutorial even has a video to help you along.

Granny Square Hexagon

This is another design that's simple to do and so a blanket can be done in no time.  Granny Squares lend themselves to rounds of colours, even though my example here is in variegated yarn just waiting for other hexagons in alternating colours.  This free pattern can be found at Crochet Again and I think this shape makes a delightful change from the usual granny square

African Flower Hexagon

This is a beautiful design that's simple, but striking.  The only problem I've found with this Hexagon is choosing which colours to use from my yarn stash.  The tutorial from Heidi Bears is well photographed and easy to follow, meaning you'll have your project done quickly and with a minimum of fuss.

Granny's Garden Hexagon

Rounding out my top five favourite free Hexagon patterns is Granny's Garden.  Six petals form this  design and I'm  loving it in softer tones crocheted together to form a baby blanket.  The pattern (which makes a dinner plate sized hexagon)  is available for free at Scrap Yarn Crochet

Happy crocheting
