Crochet Hexagon Pattern With Flower

6. Crochet Hexagon Throw

The original version of this pattern is posted at the Red Heart website (linked above); it came to my attention because Jacquie at the Bunny Mummy blog posted a lovely photo tutorial of her colorful and slightly modified version of the design. Her modifications involve transforming it into a join-as-you-go pattern, which I’m sure will be of interest to those of you who hate sewing bunches of motifs together at the end of a project. You can click here to check out Jacquie’s hexagon tutorial, part one. There is also a part two, which is linked at the bottom of part one.

7. Mini Hexagons Pattern

This is another small hexagon pattern that would require extreme amounts of patience for making a blanket, or really, anything other than small projects like gadget cozies or coasters. However, if you are in search of little hexes for whatever reason, this is an adorable granny-style hexagon pattern worth looking at. On the bright side, each hexagon only took the designer about 3 minutes to crochet. But, I’m betting it took her quite some time to do all the sewing and end-weaving required for a finished project.

  • A Free Crochet Pattern and step-by-step photo tutorial are available for this design.
  • Crochet Skill Level: Not mentioned in the pattern, but it looks easy and straightforward.

At the moment, this eye-catching pattern seems to be one of the hottest hexagon patterns on the Internet. It’s quite pretty, colorful and creative.

2. Knit Hexagon Pattern


This is a free knitting pattern. A skill level rating isn’t mentioned.


3. Leafy Hexagon Knit Motif


They’ve labeled this a hexagon, but I’m a little skeptical. To me, the picture they’ve posted with the pattern looks more like a circle. In fact, I almost included it on our list of circle patterns instead of linking it here. But then I didn’t, because I never knit the pattern myself — maybe it really is a hexagon but it just for whatever reason looks like a circle in the photograph. I wouldn’t know. Either way, it’s a pretty design. I leave it to you decide whether it’s of use or not.


So there you have it — 8 crocheted hexagons + 3 knitted hexagons = 11 wonderful hexagon patterns to knit and crochet. Hope you enjoyed this pattern roundup, and that you’ll be able to use these designs to create countless lovely knitting and crochet projects.
