I’m ahead of my hexie a day plan but they’re so cute and easy to make!
I’ve changed the pattern I’m using because I think the shape is better and it looks much more like a hexagon! I found this pattern posted by @cuteashook on IG. It’s in graphic form so if you prefer charts go there, or to my page. I’m not sure who to attribute it to, if you know please let me know.
Do you want to join in with crocheting a baby hexagon a day too?
Baby hexagon pattern
All trebles in R1 are worked into the FR, then on R2 into the chain space of R1.
FR: ch 4, join with a SS to make a ring
R1: ch 3 (counts as a treble) tr 1, ch 1, *tr 2, ch 1* repeat 4 more times, SS to 3rd ch of beg ch3 (6 groups of 2 trebles) ss to 3rd st of beg ch.
R2: ss a couple of times to next ch sp from last round, ch 3 (counts as a treble) tr1, ch1, tr2 *tr2, ch1, tr2* repeat 4 more times. (6 tr ch groups.)
You’ll know you’re at the end because you’ll have a baby hexagon. If not a) start again b) let me know that there’s a mistake here!
Darn in the ends.
I’m joining as I go on the second round, replacing the chain in the middle of the trebles with a joining slip stitch. I have two joins per side. You might want to join three times along each side, its up to you. I tried it both ways.
I’m going to use whatever DK yarn I’m using for other projects through the year and so it will turn into a kind of memory blanket. You can use finer or chunkier yarn as long as you stick to the same weight all year. I guess if you were feeling very keen you could make 3 hexagons a day in 3 different weight yarns, a blanket to keep and a few to give away for Christmas?
My eggs need to go into the pan now – I hear the water boiling. I have a yen for an egg and watercress sandwich for lunch.
Are you joining the baby hexie a day gang?
I wish but I already have a hook project I need to finish as it’s been sadly neglected. I love your mini hexagons. They’re adorable.
Such cute hexies! Love these shades all together. Looking forward to seeing it grow!
Thanks Becca, they’re satisfyingly fast. I’m getting teased for being 7 days ahead though ha ha!
Just started the hexagons, and am addicted. This is my major project for the year – thank you!
That’s great! It seemed such a great idea when I saw it that I immediately wanted to share in as I know not everyone is on IG..
Such a wonderful idea I’m joining in too! Mine look like splodges rather than hexagons though, I think it might be tension? I’m going to just go with it though :)
Fab! I bet once they’re more than a few they won’t look splodgey at all :-)
too cute. going to be a glorious riot of colour when it’s finished.
Come on Jill…. One little hexie a day, or seven at the weekend. You know you want to!!!!!

So cute I have started, some but new to crochet, not sure about joining as I go?
Google ‘join as you go Attic 24’ – Lucy’s tutorial is very good and widely used.
I am working on mine right now…I love how they just fly off the hook. I like your idea of 3 a day…one to keep and 2 to give away. I might just have to think about that!
