Spring Garden Hexie



The Spring Garden Hexie is here! A large crochet hexagon with pretty little flower patterns :)



This pattern contains descriptions for a full hexagon and a half hexagon. You can build all kinds of shapes with these two patterns.

The pattern for the whole Spring Garden Hexagon Blanket (shown on my instagram: intheyarngarden ) will soon be posted here on my blog as well.

I put a lot of work into my patterns so if you use them and share images on social media I would be very happy if you share a link to my blog and tag your work by #intheyarngarden (or #springgardenhexie ). That makes it easier for me to see your creations which I'd love to see :)

You'll find Scheepjes lovely yarn at Wool Warehouse (world wide shipping).

  2. Hi, Is it possible to make these hexagons smaller? I'd like to make your spring garden hexie blanket, but more as a long small table cloth. Can I just skip a few rounds? Thanks for your answer. Yvonne

    1. Hi! Yes, that would definitely be possible. You could try to skip round 5-7. Then you will have 3 st's less on each side of the flower hole patterns on each of the six sides. This will apply to all the flower pattern rounds. The complete hexagon would be 9 rounds. Have a great day!
