From doodle to design

For as long as I can remember, whenever I would set to doodling on any scrap paper, I always ended up using small hexagons to draw a flower. I don’t know where it originated from or even how long I’ve been doing it. And then Bam!, one day I thought, I could totally crochet this. Why did it take me so long to figure this out? And the crochet hexagon flower was born.

Yarn Used:

My yarn stash included some WECROCHET COTLIN DK left over from another project in the colors “Conch” and “Swan” that I thought would make the perfect flower.

Uses for this crochet hexagon flower

This design wields the power to turn into several different useful home décor options. Place on a table as a plant doily. Make several to place between your pans to reduce scratching. Using a thicker cotton and larger hook size will yield a hot pad or even a fun placemat for your kitchen or patio table.

Materials to make a crochet hexagon flower:

#3 DK cotton {I used Cotlin by WeCrochet – In “Conch” and “Swan”}

60 yds for the six petals, 10 yds for middle flower color

US F hook (3.75 mm)

Tapestry needle for sewing and weaving ends.


One hexagon = 4” 

Skill Level:

Advanced Beginner                       

Finished Size of the crochet hexagon flower:

11” measured diagonally

Abbreviation Used: {US Terms}

MR = Magic Ring

ch = chain

dc = double crochet

sl st = slip stitch

rep = repeat

st (s) = stitch(es)

ch-2 sp = chain 2 space

ch-1 sp = chain 1 space


  • Ch 3 counts as a stitch.
  • You will make 7 small hexagons to create the flower.
  • Sewing is required to join hexagons together.
  • Though you will be working in rounds, you will turn after sl st in 1st st.

Helpful Hints:

  1. Blocking your hexagons before sewing together will help keep them all uniform.
  2. Can use #4 cotton and a larger hook to make a bigger, thicker hot pad.
  3. The hexagons can be made bigger by continuing to increase each round much like a granny square.

Pattern Instructions for the crochet hexagon flower:

Hexagon: {Make 7 – 6 of one color, 1 of another color}

Rnd 1: ch 4, sl st in 1st st to make a ring OR use MR, place all of the following stitches in the ring (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2) if using MR, pull tight to close, sl st in top of ch 3, turn [12 dc, 6 ch-2 sp]

Rnd 2: Working in 1st ch-2 sp, ch 3, dc, ch 1, 2 dc (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in each ch-2 sp, sl st in top of ch 3, turn [24 dc 6 ch-2 sp]

At this point, you should have 6 corners of the hexagon.

Rnd 3: ch 3, dc in the sp between the 2dc clusters, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the next ch-1 sp, *2 dc in next sp between the 2dc clusters, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-1 sp; rep from * around, sl st in top of ch 3, turn [36 dc, 6 ch-1 sp]

Rnd 4: ch 3, dc in the sp between the 2dc clusters, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the next ch-1 sp, *2 dc in next 2 sp between the 2dc clusters, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the next ch-1 sp; rep from * until final sp remains, 2 dc in last sp, sl st in top of ch 3 [48 dc, 6 ch-1 sp] Fasten off. Weave in the ends.


The final round of each hexagon is considered the right side. Flip each hexagon to the wrong side. Line them up in the flower shape. Using a long piece of your main color, sew them together in the back loops. See photos below.

Sew the middle (pistil) flower between two “petals”, in the back loops matching up the stitches on each side.

Following the arrows sew the remaining “petals” in place using the back loops and matching the stitches.
