Learn how to crochet a flower hexagon with this free step by step pattern and tutorial. I don’t know about you, but as soon as Spring arrives my thoughts turn to pretty pastel and flowers. There’s just something so joyful about hooking up petals. I’ve shared the patterns for my daisy bookmark and puff flowers recently, so I thought I’d try something a little different today. Say hello to the crochet Flower Hexagon! Quick and fun to make, this crochet flower hexagon is perfect for Spring makes.
I love how versatile a hexagon is – from crochet cushions and blankets to cowls and scarves. The hexi can do it ALL. And this petalled powerhouse does it all, while looking pretty as heck!

Beginning ch 1 does count as a st.
Bobble: similar to working 4 treble crochet together in one stitch: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch or space, yarn over, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through 2 loops (2 loops remain on hook), *yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * until you have 5 loops on hook, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook. At this point I like to pull down on the stitch, pulling the yarn tightly so that the bobble really pops out away from me. We are working from the backside of the piece so the bobble should pop away from you.
Chain(s): ch(s): Yarn over, pull through loop on the hook.
Double Crochet(s): dc(s): Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, you will have two loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.
