How to Crochet a Solid Hexagon – No Gaps! – Step-by-Step Tutorial

Round 1

Make a MC.

Note. If you do not like the MC, you can either ch 4 and join into the first ch to form a ring, or ch 4 and crochet the first round in the first-made ch.

Ch 2 (does not count as a st here and in the rest of the pattern), dc 12 in ring, join with a sl st into first st. (12 sts)

Round 4

Ch 2, dc 2, *[dc 1, tr 1, dc 1] in next tr, dc 6. Repeat from * 5 times. [Dc 1, tr 1, dc 1] in next tr, dc 4. (54 sts)

All Next Rounds

  • Work a [dc 1, tr 1, dc 1] corner in each tr from the previous round.
  • For the sides, dc in each dc from the previous round.

You will increase 12 sts at each round!

Troubleshooting: Ruffled Hexagon

I tried this pattern with several different yarn weights and the appropriate hook, and it worked nicely every time.

However, it can happen that the corners become a bit ruffled and seem to have a little too much length.

In other words, if you stretch the corners, they seem to have more length than the sides.

And the reason for that is that the corners have this treble crochet in the middle, while the rest of the pattern is entirely in double crochet.

One way to fix that is to crochet the corners using the extended double crochet instead of the treble crochet!

In the picture below, you can compare directly two hexagons made with the same yarn, the same hook, and essentially the same pattern.

The only difference is that for the hexagon on the left, I made the corners as I indicated in the pattern, which is [dc 1, tr 1, dc 1].

For the hexagon on the right, the corners are [dc 1, extended dc 1, dc 1].

Comparison between a hexagon made with a treble crochet at the corners and a hexagon made with an extended double crochet

The difference is not huge but you can definitely tell that there is something different!

Also, the corners are a bit more rounded, which can be nice for baby blankets, and other more delicate patterns.
