Hubby’s Crochet Hexagon Blanket

If you love to crochet blankets, but you are facing warm weather or you are often on the go, this crochet hexagon blanket maybe the perfect project for you. You can keep cool by crocheting up the small parts of the blanket one at a time. You can also easily take this project on the go. Just grab a skein of yarn, hook and scissors. After making just a few hexagons, you will have the pattern memorized and be able to work on it anywhere. Or you can purchase the printable pattern here for easy on the go crocheting.

It has been 15 years since the last time I made my husband a blanket. He has kept the first blanket I gave him for our first Christmas together, back when we were 17 years old. After 15 years he has finally allowed me to make him another. So the Hubby’s Crochet Hexagon Blanket was born.

He wanted something light and airy, because we live in Phoenix and it is quite warm. I wanted to make him something special, so I designed a blanket using his favorite shape and some muted colors.

I new I needed to use cotton yarn so that the blanket would not trap heat. I turned to Caron’s Cotton Cakes for a nice light yarn. They now come in solid colors, but making the hexagons with a striping yarn would be very pretty too. Feel free to use an acrylic yarn if you are looking for a warmer blanket.

I made my blanket using 12 inch hexagons, but I understand that may not be right for everyone. So I have provide instructions to make a 4 inch, and 8 inch hexagon as well. I have also provided diagrams to show you one idea on how to sew together your hexagons for both baby blankets and a throw blanket. Feel free to make extra hexagons and make a blanket as large as you like.

When designing the 12″ hexagon blanket, I really wanted to leave the edges uneven. I love that look, but for the 12″ hexagons I did not feel that they looked right. So I have provided a pattern for a Half hexagon below so you can create a straight edge along the side.

So sew your pieces together, I lined up my hexagons and halves in horizontal rows like the photo below. I used a blanket stitch or invisible stitch to sew the sides of the hexagons together.

Then once all my rows were completed lined my rows up together and sewed the rows together.

Once all the pieces are sewn together you blanket is done and ready to be enjoyed. I hope you enjoyed the pattern. Make sure to follow me on social media and see the baby blanket I am making with the left over yarn from this project.

    Just a fyi, the links to Pintrest, Ravelry and your shop didn’t work. Love the pattern.

      Thanks for letting me know. Raverly should work now. Pinterest is giving me a little trouble but it should be cleared up in a day or to. I will update the Etsy shop link once I create a PDF pattern for the blanket. Thanks for watching out for me!

    This is a wonderful pattern!! Reminiscent of the quilts my grandmother used to make which I’m incapable of making but I can crochet this!! Thank You!

      That is wonderful! I used to lay out blocks for my grandmother to quilt. She had so much fabric that she cut into 8″ blocks.

    I love this so much, especially because you have written the half hex pattern too- it’s a bugbear of mine when hex blankets have lumpy edges.

    1. Lindsey

      August 26, 2019 at 4:14 am

      I wanted it to have a bumpy edge, but the 12″ is just too much of a bump. So the half hexagon was born.

    Pinterest won’t let me pin. Say might lead to spam.

    1. Lindsey

      Yes pinterest has marked my site as spam by accident. It will be fixed in a few days.
