How to Crochet a Hexagon

Granny squares are the quintessential crochet project. One of the most popular variations of the granny square is crocheting a hexagonal version. In this video, Heidi will walk you through how to crochet hexagon granny squares. This six-sided shape works so well with other hexagons or granny squares to create beautiful afghans or wearables.

This hexagon crochet pattern is a fun modification for the classic four-sided version. Since it has more sides, it can be connected on more sides, allowing for you to make the beautiful hexagonal afghans that are available.

This how to crochet a hexagon YouTube video is available embedded here or on AllFreeCrochet's YouTube channel. Take a look and see how this crochet technique is completed.

how do you connect the hexies together?

Hi anitalansberry 182 4989, we have a helpful article including video tutorials on how to join granny squares here: We hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

These hexagons are so neat and tidy looking. They are very crisp and sharp. I do not think they are blocked, so they do look amazing. To know how to make a hexagon is kind of one of those things that every crafter should know how to do. It is a great step by step tutorial. Great job!

Free and easy. Oh boy, two of my favorite words. The third being either inexpensive or economical. This is a great tutorial for beginners and a nice little refresher or reminder pattern for us more advanced crocheters. I forget there are other ways to do a granny style pattern. I would like to use it for making a purse. Black and white would really look nice. Thank you for the idea.
