Free Crochet Pattern: Hexagon Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®
Pattern #: chs-hexagonAfghan
The Tudor-Deco color combination shown gives it a wonderful, “spring-y" feel, but feel free to use whatever colors suit your décor. And, yes, there really are only two colors used, but the long color changes in Homespun’s variable colors make it look like more.

9 inches from point to point. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


dc2tog (Yo, insert hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 2 loops) 2 times, yo, draw through 3 loops.

dc3tog (Yo, insert hook, draw up loop, yo, draw through 2 loops) 3 times, yo, draw through 4 loops.

Hexagon Afghan Reviewed by Linda D Mansker on 2012-05-03 ****
I made this one when the pattern first came out, using Homespun's Waterfall with Montana Sky. It was not only a great take-along project (easy to crochet, easy to stuff in my purse or briefcase, and quick), but it made an heirloom quality throw.

I added to it a couple of years finished it, so I could use it to throw across my queen-size bed (yarn's still available thank goodness!). All I can say is, 'Lovely'.
