Geometry can really be fun, especially with a crochet hook, and lately, I’ve been creating with all sorts of crochet shapes, including circles, squares, triangles, pentagons, etc.

And I have to admit that I totally fell in love with hexagons and beehive patterns!

So, since I needed a new throw blanket for the couch, I thought of making this crochet Solid Hexagon Throw using some solid hexagons and half solid hexagons, all without any gaps at all.

The half hexagons are necessary if you want a straight border for your blanket, but you could also leave the gaps at the edges unfilled.

The result is a simple and beautiful blanket that is perfect to snuggle up on the couch or even to throw on the bed for an extra layer of comfort.

How to Crochet a Hexagon Blanket

The idea behind a hexagon afghan is simple. You first crochet all the hexagon motifs that you need and later join them to make a blanket.

You can use any kind of hexagon pattern, including:

Since it’s done in pieces and using very basic stitches, making a hexagon blanket is a fun and accessible project also for beginners.

How many Crochet Hexagon for a Blanket?

The number of crochet hexagons that you’ll need varies depending on the size of your hexagons and the size of the blanket that you want to make.

For my Solid Hexagons Throw (55″ by 70″), I used:

  • 58 hexagons that measured 7.5″ (19 cm) from side to side and 9″ (23 cm) from tip to tip on the longest dimension;
  • 14 half hexagons with a pointy side;
  • and 10 hexagons with a flat side.

Adjust the pattern for any blanket and hexagon size

If you don’t want to crochet an entire throw, you can easily make any blanket size by dividing the width of your blanket by the width of your hexagons, and the height of your blanket by the tip-to-tip length of your hexagons.

Then, multiply the numbers you got, and you’ll know the minimum number of hexagons you’ll need for your blanket!

  1. Hi Raffaella, I love all of your designs and love to see your patterns in the crochet a longs. I didn’t see a code or direct download for the Hexagon Throw. Did I miss it? Or is it only free on your website? Thank you, Jean

  2. Hello,
    I am working on this blanket and looked at your instructions for slip stitching them together, I’m struggling with not having gaps where three pieces meet as at some of these intersections you are ending one join and starting another. Do you have a video anywhere showing how you joined the hexagons?
    Thank you!
    Brenda

    • Hi Brenda,
      Unfortunately, I don’t have a video on how to join hexagons but one easy way to avoid the gap at the intersection is to start and end the sl st join in the sl sts that you already made.
      To say it in other words, when you join the first two hexagons, make sure to sl st together the tr at the touching corners. Then, when you’re joining the remaining open hexagons and you get to the corner where the 3 hexagons touch, make sure to sl st together the tr at the new corner with the sl st that is already joining the first two tr.
      If it is not clear, feel free to drop me an e-mail at raffaella(at)raffamusadesigns.com and I’ll try to explain it with a picture.
      Best,
      Raffaella 🙂

  3. Hi! I’m a beginner so I feel weird saying this but I don’t think the above pattern is for hexagons. I’ve followed it to the letter twice now and I have 2 pretty pentagons. Is there a possibility the pattern isn’t right?

    Reply
    • Hi,
      Other people already followed this pattern and made their hexagon blankets, so I’d say you should be getting hexagons. I’m not sure why you’re getting pentagons… Did you try watching the video tutorial?
      If you want, feel free to drop me an e-mail with a pic of your work attached so I can try and help you 🙂
      Best,

  4. Hi! Thank you for this pattern. How could I modify it to make smaller hexagons? I’m sorry if this is a basic question. Thanks!

    Reply
    • Hi Emily, you can simply stop crocheting rounds when you’re happy with the size of your hexagons. For the half hexagons, work the same number of rows as the rounds of the hexagons 🙂

  5. Hi!
    As I’m working through the hexagons, I was wondering if you used color A to join your hexes together, or a different color?
    Thanks so much for sharing!
