Crochet Hexagon – Doilies and Blankets

Crochet hexagon to make doilies, blankets, seats cover and more. I used the cluster stitch in parts of this pattern as you’ll see in the directions. To join those hexagons together you either do it as you go during the last round or stack your hexagons and join them later by slip stitching around. I used four colors, one for each round but you can use one or two if you like. For doilies use cotton thread or thin yarn and thicker one for blankets.

Joining the hexagons together:
There are two ways to join the hexagons together…
The first one:
Crochet and stack the number of hexagon that you need for your project then join them by slip stitching around. This technique is more suitable for thick yarn and working with blankets.

The second one:
Joining the hexagon as you go during the last round as directed below. You can use this technique with thin yarn and doilies.
Crochet your first hexagon as directed above.
Crochet your next hexagon until the 3rd round.
Locate the corners that you want to join in.
Continue with the fourth round until you reach the corner you want to join in.
Make one chain instead of two (the two chains that makes the corner in round four).
Join with slip stitch in chain two space corner in the first hexagon not the one you’re working on.
continue with round four’s directions as usual until you reach the next corner you want to join in and repeat same steps.
Crochet the corners that you don’t want to join in normally with two chain as shown in round four.
