I don’t know about you, but as soon as Spring arrives my thoughts turn to pretty pastel and flowers. There’s just something so joyful about hooking up petals. I’ve shared the patterns for my daisy bookmark and puff flowers recently, so I thought I’d try something a little different today. Say hello to the Flower Hexagon! Quick and fun to make, this crochet flower hexagon is perfect for Spring makes.
I love how versatile a hexagon is – from cushions and blankets to cowls and scarves. The hexi can do it ALL. And this petalled powerhouse does it all, while looking pretty as heck!
PATTERN USE IDEAS
- Scarfs and cowls
MATERIALS AND TOOLS NEEDED
Yarn: your choice, I used Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK
Hook: 4mm hook or size appropriate for your yarn
Written in UK terms
Video tutorial can be found at the base of the post.
Beginning ch 1 does count as a st.
Bobble: similar to working 4 treble crochet together in one stitch: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch or space, yarn over, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through 2 loops (2 loops remain on hook), *yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * until you have 5 loops on hook, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook. At this point I like to pull down on the stitch, pulling the yarn tightly so that the bobble really pops out away from me. We are working from the backside of the piece so the bobble should pop away from you.
Chain (ch): Yarn over, pull through one loop on hook
Double Crochet (dc): Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through both loops.
Slip Stitch (ss): Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull yarn through stitch and loop on hook
Treble Crochet (tc): Yarn over, insert hook into stitch or space, yarn over, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), (yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice.
Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.

Stretching the corners or blocking will show the shape of the hexagon more clearly.
