This knit hexagon wrap starts in the center with a flower and then grows into a hexagon. Two sides on one half and two sides on the other then expand outwards to lengthen the wrap. This is an intermediate pattern because of the central flower. Once the center is complete, the knitting becomes quite easy!

At the end of this pattern there is a chance to win the yarn used in the Hexed Flower wrap, in addition to a yarn bowl. Giveaway ends 11/3/19

Hexagon Trivet – protect your table in a pretty way!

I’m a fan of trivets. They keep my table safe and make me feel all grown up. You know, “I’m so awesome at adulting, I have pretty trivets for my hot homemade food!” With the Hexagon Trivet, you can use a variegated color, a solid color, or even a variety of solid colors. You could make it look like a flower! If you use a wool or cotton yarn you could even make potholders.

Please note: If made with the suggested yarn these will work as trivets, but are not suggested for use near fire.

Hexagon Dish Scrubby or Trivet

I love the usefulness and cleanliness of crochet scrubbies! The Hexagon Dish Scrubby has lots of texture so it can scrub well. You can make it larger to be used as a trivet as well. If you make 7 or 8 of them, you can use a new one every day and then toss them in the wash once a week. This makes them more clean, more green, and more affordable then disposable sponges.

There are so many things I should be doing today. I think I will make a new pattern instead.

Farmers Market Hexagon Bag
AKA The Grand Old Flag Bag

Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Farmers-Market-Hexagon-Bag-Pin

The town farmers market is finally open for the season! I LOVE going to the farmers market, and I love using re~usable bags. For years I have been using the tote bags you can buy at the grocers, but this year I am making a market bag! This market bag has a hexagon base, a mesh side, and a long shoulder strap on top! I have chosen the super simple chain and slip st mesh for the side because it works so well for market bags, and I like the look. On our first outing to the market with the bag this morning, my daughter Vada dubbed it the “Grand Old Flag Bag.”

Sizes:
One size, but easy to adjust

Yarn:
Worsted weight, 100% cotton recommended ~ I used some unmarked yarn I had from a friend de~stashing, so I am not sure of the brand I used, but you can find some links of yarn I suggest at the bottom of this post. I used 180 grams of yarn (which is about 300 yards) to make mine.

Hook:
US H/8/5.00mm

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Gauge:
Not very important, it’s a bag!

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip st
sc ~ single crochet
dc ~ double crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
sp ~ space

Pattern:

Round 1: Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring, ch 4 (counts as first dc, and ch 1), [2 dc in ring , ch 1] 5 times, dc in ring, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 4. (6 sets of {2 dc, ch-1})

Round 2: Sl st into ch-1 sp,

Round 5: Sl st into ch-2 sp, ch 5 (counts as first dc, and ch 2), dc in same ch-2 sp, [dc in each of next 8 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in ch-2 corner] 5 times, dc in each of next 8 dc, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 5. (6 sets of {10 dc, ch-2})

Round 6: Sl st into ch-2 sp, ch 5 (counts as first dc, and ch 2), dc in same ch-2 sp, [dc in each of next 10 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in ch-2 corner] 5 times, dc in each of next 10 dc, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 5. (6 sets of {12 dc, ch-2})

Round 7: Sl st into ch-2 sp, ch 5 (counts as first dc, and ch 2), dc in same ch-2 sp, [dc in each of next 12 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in ch-2 corner] 5 times, dc in each of next 12 dc, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 5. (6 sets of {14 dc, ch-2})

Round 8: Sl st into ch-2 sp, ch 5 (counts as first dc, and ch 2), dc in same ch-2 sp, [dc in each of next 14 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in ch-2 corner] 5 times, dc in each of next 14 dc, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 5. (6 sets of {16 dc, ch-2})

[sl st  in each of next 16 sc, sl st in each of next 2 ch] 6 times, sl st into first sl st. (108 sl st)

Farmers-Market-Hexagon-Mid-Row-9

Round 10: Turn, ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc in each sl st around, sl st to top of first sc. (108 sc)
*It is a little hard to insert the hook in just the slip st in this round, but it is worth the effort to get the nice angle between the bottom and side.

Farmers-Market-Hexagon-Row-10

Round 11 ~ 13: Ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc in each sc around, sl st to top of first sc. (108 sc)

Farmers-Market-Hexagon-bottom

Spiral Mesh Rounds: [Ch 5, skip 4, sc in next sc] 21 times, [ch 5, sl st in center of next ch-5] until there are a total of 25 rounds of mesh.
*If you want a longer bag, add more mesh, for a shorter bag, make less. I think next time I make one, I will do 20 rounds, 25 gets a bit long with heavy veggies in the bottom.

Top & first side of strap

Round 1: 3 sc in the same ch-5 sp were the last sl st was placed, 5 sc in each ch-5 sp around, sl st to top of first sc. (108 sc)

Round 2 ~ 4: Ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc in each sc around, sl st to top of first sc. (108 sc)

Round 5: Ch 146, skip 54, sc2tog, sc in each of the next 50 sts, sc2tog. (198 sc)
*This strap is long so it can hang across your body. If it is too long or stretches too much, you can tie a knot in the top of the strap. You can also take of 50 chains to make it a bit shorter, and it should still work across your body.

Round 6: Working in back loops of the chains made at the start of the last round and then in both loops of the sc sts made in the last round, sc2tog, sc in each of the next 142 sts, sc2tog twice, sc in each of the next 48 sts, sc2tog. (194 sts)

Round 7: Sc2tog, sc in each of the next 140 sts, sc2tog twice, sc in each of the next 46 sts, sc2tog. (194 sts)

Round 8: Sc2tog, sc in each of the next 138 sts, sc2tog, fasten off. (140 sts)

Second side of strap

Round 1: Sl st t first unworked sc from round 5 above, sc2tog,  sc in each of the next 50 sts, sc2tog twice,  sc in each of the next 142 sts, sc2tog. (196 sc)

Round 2: Sc2tog, sc in each of the next 48 sts, sc2tog twice, sc in each of the next 140 sts, sc2tog. (192 sts)

Stitchopedia ~ Motif: Flower to Hexagon Granny

Stitchopedia-Motifs-Flower-to-Hexagon-Granny-Cover

Nearly 5 years after creating the Flower to Hexagon Granny pattern ~ my first pattern I shared with you ~ it is still my most popular! So I thought it was about time I made a video and a chart to go along with the pattern, as both have been requested several times through the years.

I actually made a few videos. The first and second can be found here and are for the first 3 rounds that create the flower, and then another for the optional dimensional flower added to the center. This post has all the instruction for getting from the flower to finishing the hexagon. To join the motifs, I recommend the Granny~Join~as~You~Go technique.

For the written pattern along with step~by~step photos, see this post.

Stitchopedia-Motifs-Flower-To-Hexagon-Granny-with-Center-Flower-001

The samples seen in this post were made with Lion Brand Heartland yarn (which is made in the USA), and a 6.o0 mm/US J crochet hook.

The stitches used in this pattern are:
ch ~ chain
hdc ~ half double crochet
dc ~ double crochet
dc cl ~ double crochet cluster

This video will show you the main flower, and includes some designer tips not in the written pattern:

And here is a chart that shows the full hexagon.
