In today’s post you will learn to crochet a Hexagon with circle center. Learning new patterns or stitches is fun but sometimes can be frustrating. This little hexagon is so easy to crochet and so cute. It can be used for many projects. I used a medium weight yarn and a 6mm hook. You can use any size hook or yarn just be sure the yarn weight is appropriate for the hook you are using and vice versa.
Hexagon shapes give items a unique look. There are many patterns ranging from afghans, scarfs, sweaters and even some animals that use hexagon shapes. I have seen hippos, elephants and turtles using this stitch. The good news is that it is not difficult to make. Here I will show you how. If you are a visual learner I have also filmed and uploaded a free YouTube video for you to watch if you prefer.
