Hexagons are the hottest motif shape going right now - for blankets, stuffed animals, you name it! The African Flower Hexagon (linked below) is by far the most popular right now, and I did a roundup earlier this year featuring 10 free crochet patterns that use the African Flower motif. Prior to that, I'd also done a roundup of 10 free crochet patterns using all sorts of hexagons. But today I want to focus on the hexagon itself. Such a simple shape, usually just a hands-width when finished, but within those few rows there is so much variation! Here are the standouts: 10 free crochet hexagon patterns!
