Skill Level - Easy

Abbreviations
DC - Double Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch

Materials
Size I/5.5 mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle



Note:  I always use a chain 1 as the step up at the beginning of the round to create full stitches at the beginning of my work.  The chain tends to leave gaps and holes.  You can use other techniques for the beginning stitch on your round.  The outcome will be the same.

Attach a slip knot to the crochet hook.

Make a chain of 4, join with the beginning chain.

Round 1: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch,  *Work 2 DC through the center of the chain, CH 2.  Complete 5 times total from *.  Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.


Round 2: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 2 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 2 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

Round 3: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 6 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 6 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

Round 4: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 10 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 10 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

Round 5: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 14 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 14 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

Round 6: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 18 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 18 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

Round 7: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch, *Work 2 DC through the same CH space, work 1 DC in ea of the next 22 stitches. Work 2 DC in the next CH 2 space, CH 2. Complete 5 times from *.  Work 1 DC in ea of the next 22 stitches. Work 2 more DC, CH 1, SC in the first stitch to join.

  3. Hello, Teresa!
    I'm Irene from Russia.
    I can crochet a little, but before i found your lessons I couldn't explain anything about it in English. So you have been giving linguistic education to me. Thank you! You are a really good teacher.

  5. Teresa, my hexagon would not lay flat. Am I just crocheting too tightly?

  7. Teresa,

    I'm making this in an afghan size. So far I've done 10-15 rows and it won't lay flat. Is it supposed to be like that if you expand the size or should I be making some sort of modifications in the pattern?

    Thanks so much for all you do for the craft!
