Intro

For the ‘Inspirational Hexies’ blog series I have designed two hexagon patterns for you to use and apply your own color scheme on (or use the ones I made). The Scheepjes Catona version has a granny stitch pattern and the Scheepjes Stone Washed/River Washed version has a solid version with rounds of double crochets (US).

Motif Size

Granny Hexie pattern in Scheepjes Catona Cutie Pies: 9 rounds measure 20cm/8″ in height, measured across from point to point, and each of the six sides measure 10cm/4″ using 3,5 mm (E) hook {or other size to obtain gauge}

Solid Hexie pattern in Scheepjes Stone Washed/River Washed: 8 rounds measure 20cm/8″ in height, measured across from point to point, and each of the six sides measures 10cm/4″, using 4mm (G) hook {or other size to obtain gauge}

Your motifs can be larger or smaller, but please keep in mind that both motifs must be the same size and that if your motifs are larger, that you also need more yarn than me.

Notes & Helpful Tips

  • You can start a new color by working a standing stitch or [slip stitch, chain 3]
  • You can close the round with a slip stitch or work an invisible join
  • When working the solid hexie, the first stitch after the corner can be a bit hidden. Dedri Uys from Look at What I made has an excellent tutorial about recognizing these hidden stitches! Find it HERE.
  • If you want to come up with your own color schemes and work out the yarn usage; one round uses between 0,3-0,5 grams of yarn more than the round before. Example: R1 uses 0,3-0,5 grams, R2 uses 0,6-1 grams, R3 uses 0,9-1,5 grams.  
  • IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO MIX YARNS AND MOTIFS: The Granny Hexie pattern is specifically written for the Catona yarn and the Solid Hexie pattern is specifically written for the Stone Washed/River washed yarn, so the two motifs are the same size and have the same stitch counts. I did this intentionally so we can combine the two motifs into a larger piece. This also means that you cannot use the solid motif with Catona yarn and you cannot use the granny motif with Stone Washed/River Washed. At least not without changing the pattern.

The Pattern 

Note before you start: Each round is worked in a different color, so at the end of the round, you cut yarn and work away the ends. The new round starts with the new color.

You might notice that the hexie above does not have skipped stitches and extra stitches in the corners, I altered this later to prevent the center from turning.
