It took me a minute to decide what kind of crochet along I wanted to make happen and settled on a Hexagon Stash Busting Project. This will be part of the 90 Days of Creativity I recently kicked off- each hexagon pattern will be posted here of course so you can follow along. It will be available in full inside the Crochet Academy!
Crochet hook H
Ch – Chain
Sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
Ch 5, join with sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in ring, *ch 3, 3 dc in ring; repeat from * four more times, join with dc to top of ch-3 (6 chain spaces) – sl st to ch 3 space.
Round 2: Ch 3 (count as dc) in ch-3 sp, ( 2 dc, ch-1, 3 dc) in space made by dc, *(3 dc, ch-1, 3 dc) in next ch-3 space; repeat * from around, join with slip st to top of ch-3.
Round 3: ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 2 dc, *(dc, ch-2, dc) in ch-1 sp, dc in next 6 dc; repeat * five more times, ending last repeat dc in next 3 dc, join with slip st to top of ch-3.
Round 4: ch-1, sc in the same stitch, *sc in each dc to corner, (sc, ch-2, sc) in corner ch-2 space; repeat from * around, ending sc in each dc to end of the round, join to first sc. Fasten off.
For variation, you could change the color after each round if you like. You may do this in different colors as well and multiple times to help with the Hexagon Stash Busting. You could also make a blanket just using this single hexagon with different color arrangements. One of the things I love about crochet is that the possibilities are endless.
