In my search for a hexagon granny to make blankets for my girls, I just couldn’t find one that I really LOVED. Then I realized that there were some gorgeous crocheted flowers with six sides, and I could make a hexagon granny from one of those. So this pattern was born.

There really is no gauge here. You can use any yarn you want and the hook that works best with the yarn. As with most granny blankets, just use as many blocks as you need to make the size blanket you want. Have fun with it, I know I did!

ETA: I have had many questions about what yarn I used. It is Lion Brand Cotton Ease with a 4.5 mm hook, and 3 years later, it is still holding up very nicely!

and another ETA 6/8/14: Lion Brand has discontinued a lot of the colors of Cotton Ease. I would recommend using Lion Brand Hartland yarn in it’s place, and a 5.50 or 6.00 mm hook.

I have had many requests for a video and a chart for this pattern.
I have made a set for first 3 rows (the flower) and the optional dimensional flower here,
and another set for turning the flower into a hexagon here.
You can also find a video to show the join-as-you-go for grannies method here.

Rnd 2: Attach new color yarn to any hdc, ch 2, dc in same stitch (counts as first dc cl), ch 1, [dc cl in next stitch, ch 1), 11 times, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-2. – {12 dc cl}

Rnd 3: You will be working this round in the spaces in between the dc cl.
Attach next color yarn the space between dc cls, sl st in same space, 6 dc in next space, [sl st in next space, 6 dc in next space] 6 times, sl st to first sl st made. – {6 petals}
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Inner Flower (optional)

For my blanket, I am only putting these flowers on ¼ of the hexes, you do what makes you happy! This one is harder to explain, but hopefully the pictures will help.

Look at the second round, the one that is lime in my pictures. You see how the 12 dc cl have become 6 petals because of the way the third round pulls them? Well, we are going to be working off the post just under the center of each of these petals.

Rnd 1: Attach the next color yarn to the top of a post of a st in the first round that is just under the center of one of the petals in the second round, [ch 2, skip a post, sl st into next post] 6 times, last sl st will be in same spot as first. – {6 petals}

Rnd 2: [Sl st in next ch-2 sp, (hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sl st) in same ch-2 space] 6 times. – {6 petals}
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Continue from Rnd 3 of Hexagon

Find the video and chart for the rest of the hexagon here.
Rnds 4 & 5 have the appearance of only one round, and are made with the same color. You want a nice contrast in color between this yarn and the yarn used in rnd 3 so that your flowers will really “pop”.

Rnd 4: Attach next color after the 3rd dc of any petal from Rnd 3, ch 3 [dc into the space in the second round between the petals, ch 3, sl st after the 3rd dc of next petal, ch 3] 5 times, dc into the space in the second round between the petals, ch 3, sl st into first sl st made.
Rnd 5: Sl st in ch-3 sp, ch 3 (counts as first dc), (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same sp. [3 dc in next ch-3 sp, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp] 5 times, 3 dc 3 in next ch-3 sp, sl st in top of beginning ch-3. – {9 sts on each side}
Fasten off.

TA-DA, you have a pretty hexagon with a flower in the middle!

Now it’s time for the join-as-you-go method. It is very visual, you can also find a video to show the join-as-you-go for grannies method here

Work Rnd 6 to the second corner (3 dc, ch-2, 3 dc), complete the first 3 dc, ch 1, insert hook from front to back in ch-2 sp of hex being joined, ch 1, [complete next 3 dc, insert hook from front to back in next ch-1 sp of hex being joined, ch 1, complete next 3 dc] 2 times, complete next 3 dc, insert hook from front to back in ch-2 sp of hex being joined, ch 1.
If attaching to only one hex, complete next chain and finish last round as normal. To keep connecting to another hex, make second ch but join to corner of the next hex in the same manner as before, then continue connecting the two sides. Once all sides are connected as needed, continue the last round to the end.

  1. GORGEOUS! What a fabulous pattern, thank you so much for sharing it with us, very kind of you. Oh I do love this pattern, and your blanket is beautiful. Thank you! Love vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  2. Is there an actual pattern to download for the hexagon grannies? I can’t seem to find it. I would love to make it. I am handicapped, and about all i can do is knit or crochet. The pattern is beautiful!

    • Use whatever size hook that corresponds with the yarn you choose. I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease yarn and a 4.5 hook, but if I were using a worsted weight yarn I would have used a larger needle to match that yarn.

  3. Hi Jessie, as a learner i found the written pattern very clear to follow and the photos was a real bonus. i am very grateful . THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing. I cant wait to start. Have a wonderful day. Amina.

  4. You have lovely project….I would be so-o happy to get the pattern, BUT, I have to copy 16 pages b/4 I have the pattern. I find this a waste of paper and energy. mk

  5. I love this!! how much yarn did you use for your total project and how big did the final project end up being? It’s so hard to accurately purchase the right amount of yarn, and my “big box store” has a sale going and I’d love to stock up,

    • I’m actually not sure, but I used Cotten~Ease, which I believe is discontinued, or at least a lot of the colors are. The blanket is actually big enough to cover the top of a queen size bed! I think I used about 3 skeins of each color, and about 8 or 9 colors.

  6. How does Lion Brand Hartland compare to Vanna’s Choice? Since you recommend Hartland I’m wondering what you think of Vanna’s Choice. Are they comparable?

    • Vanna’s choice is more of a heavier worsted weight yarn with a matte finish. Heartland is a lighter worsted weight with a shiny finish and it has more drape. Either one will work for this pattern, it just depends on the look you like.

  7. I so much appreciate your sharing this lovely pattern but could you please reconsider taking out the pictures “to save us ink”. I’m going crazy trying to get the whole thing together in my computer so I can tell what pattern it is. Thank you! 🙂
