Chunky Crochet Hexagons

Chunky Crochet Hexagons

After a busy holiday season, I’ve got a lot of yarn scraps! There are always leftovers from all the scarves, hats, mittens, and whatever else your creative hands have made. I mostly use super bulky yarn to stock for craft shows so that is most of what I have left! What do you do with all that left over yarn?? This post contains affiliate links.

In the past, I’ve used it to make the coasters above. That free pattern is also available in my blog. I wanted something a little more functional for my next scrap project so I decided on a Hexi Blanket!

To keep my stash yarn organized, I wind it into cakes!

Materials Needed

For this project, you’ll need some scrap yarn… a lot of it.

Yarn: size 6 super bulky – I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick

Lion Brand Yarn 641-099 Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Bonus Bundle Yarn, Fisherman

Hook: 11.50mm/P

Susan Bates 12406-P 16 6-Inch Luxite Plastic Crochet Hook, 11.5mm

Yarn needle and scissors

Abbreviations

  • Ch – chain
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Hdc – half double crochet
  • Dc – Double crochet
  • St – stitch
  • Sts- stitches

Notes: Chaining will count as a stitch throughout the pattern.

Pattern

Ch 4 and sl st to starting ch to form a circle (could also use a magic circle)

Round 1: ch 3 and 11 dc into starting circle. Sl st to the top of ch 3 to join round. (12 sts)

Round 2: ch 3 and dc in first st, 2 dc in each st around. Sl st to the top of ch 3 to join round. (24 sts)

Cut yarn and weave in ends. I use an invisible join to finish the circle.

Join in any stitch with contrasting color by pulling a loop through and ch 1. This will count as a sc.

Round 3: we already have our first sc. Hdc in next st, (dc, ch, dc) in next st {that is our first point}, *hdc, sc, hdc, (dc, ch, dc) over next 4 sts* repeat from * to * 4 times, hdc in next st. Sl st to the top of ch 1 from the color change to join. (36 sts)

Round 4: ch 1, sc in next sts, (sc, ch, sc) in ch space, *sc in next 4 sts, (sc, ch, sc) in ch space*, repeat from * to * 4 times, sc in next 2 sts. Sl st to join round.

Cut yarn and use invisible join to weave in the ends!

Repeat this pattern with all your left over yarn until you have enough hexagons to create your blanket, handbag, stuffed animal, or whatever else you can dream up!
