Crochet Hexagon Blanket Pattern – Pick & Mix

The Pick & Mix blanket is my first blanket pattern and i’m so excited to share it with you. I don’t usually get much inspiration from blankets and wouldn’t say they’re my ‘thing’, but I had this idea in my head for a while so had to make it and write it up. It’s a crochet hexagon blanket pattern that will end up totally unique to you! I’ll explain why, but it’s in the name…

Crochet hexagon blanket pattern

The crochet hexagon blanket pattern provides instructions for a number of different hexagons, that you pick and choose from to put together the hexagons you like best into whatever arrangement you want! You could use all of them, mix up a couple, or even use one single hexagon throughout in different colours. I’m definitely going to do this on the next one I make.

There is an example template in the PDF pattern that you can follow if you prefer to have it laid out for you, and a blank one so that you can plan out your own unique design.

Tension

• It’s not essential to meet a required tension, though a different hook or yarn size may result in a different sized finished blanket or differing yarn requirements
• Each hexagon should measure approx. 5.5”
• Working to this size and using 30 full hexagons will provide a finished baby blanket sized approx. 30×30”

Pattern Notes

• Stitch count will be in brackets at the end of each row
• Starting chains DO count as a stitch unless otherwise specified, and final slip stitches will be into the starting chain
• Instructions are given for each hexagon type for you to choose how many of each you prefer
• Steps written in *this format* will be repeated the number of times specified after the *. E.g.: *dc ch1 dc* repeat * 5x – this step will be done a total of 5 times

Border

After your hexagons are joined, join your yarn to the top left corner of your blanket, to work the border down the left straight edge. Ch3

Straight edges: – Into each full hexagon side, hdc in each st and 1 into the ch sp of the hexagon. You will have 12 hdcs for each – Into each half hexagon side, 2hdc into every horizontal row made, with 1 in the centre loop where you started. You will have 21 for each – Continue in this way for the whole side, with a hdc ch1 hdc in the very corner

Pointed edges (after you have worked the dc ch1 dc in the corner): – Hdc in each st along the first hexagon point up until where the next hexagon starts – sc2tog over the ch sps of each of the hexagons to ‘join’ them – Continue with hdc up the side of the next hexagon up until the ch sp, hdc ch1 hdc, repeat around

After the hdc round, finish with a round of dc. On the straight edges, dc in every hdc. On the pointed edges, dc in every dc, skip 2 sts where each point meets (where the sc2tog was worked on the prev row), and dc ch1 dc in each ch sp from the prev row.

Finish here and weave in ends, or add your own border rounds afterwards!
