Crochet Granny Hexagon

A crochet granny hexagon is yet another adaption of the granny square.  Of course, it has 6 sides and 6 corners and is worked in the round.  They can fit together like little puzzle pieces and when sewn together, they can create awesome geometric designs in your project.

They just look amazing and I love them in afghans.

As with granny squares, granny triangles, etc, you’ll be able to find many different patterns for designs within the hexagon itself.  You can even create your own pattern.  Just be sure that it has the correct number of sides and corners.

There are several things that will affect the size of your crochet granny hexagon.   Here’s a few to keep in mind:

  • Using different kinds of yarn
  • Different sized hooks
  • Your tension
  • The number of rounds you work

Remember, you can use whatever works best to get your desired result.  Don’t be afraid to try different things.
