Jane creates this plain hexagon crochet shape with a 5mm hook using aran weight yarn. She says you could also work it in double knitting with a 4mm hook.
You will see how to start the centre of the hexagon with a ring, which can be a little tricky. Then Jane takes us through the 1st and 2nd rounds, at which point the hexagon shape starts to appear. She says to keep an eye on the stitch count, which increases on each round up to 9 on the final, fourth round.
Jane has 3 workshops on making different styles of Hexagons that you can watch on the site. They are all made the same size, having 9 on the final round count. The other two are: Flower Crochet Hexagons workshop and Star Crochet Hexagons workshop.
To make the finished project more interesting, Jane suggests you could think about using several colours.
If you'd like to make a throw like the ones Jane shows in the workshop, you can find it on our website.
