How to Crochet Half Hexagons – Pointed & Flat Sides

If you’re crocheting a honeycomb pattern with double crochet solid hexagons, you’ll definitely want to learn how to crochet half hexagons.

After making a few hexagons, you probably already realized that those edges are not going to be straight unless you fill the gaps with some half shapes.

Hexagons are not quite like classic granny squares, where you only need to crochet one kind of half granny to fill those holes on the border.

Instead, with hexagons, you’ll need two different kinds of half hexagons in order to make a perfectly straight edge.

So, in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to crochet both shapes:

  • the half solid hexagon with a pointy side;
  • and the half solid hexagon with a flat/squared side.

Save the free pattern for the half solid hexagons by pinning it to your favorite crochet board on Pinterest!
