Hexagon Blanket - Lazy CAL

Updated: Jul 11

Do you have scraps of yarn lying around? I sure do! In the past I have created rectangle scrap blanket patterns, but this time I'm going to try a hexagon.


You can find the pattern below or if you would like to support me and my crochet habit, the pattern can be purchased on Ravelry for $2.50 :)

https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hexagon-scrap-blanket



I'll be using Bernat Premium, since it's my main blanket making yarn. The colors will be willy nilly lol. Not going to try very hard to make it all matchy. That's not the point of a scrap blanket it is?

You can switch colors whenever you like. I will try to keep the "special stitch" rows all one color, but the dc rows will probably not work out that way.

Because I get bored easily, there will be different stitch patterns between the dc rows. I will take photos of the "special stitch" rows, but not all the dc rows.


This pattern has not been tested, I'm creating it as I write it out. If you find an error please let me know!

SPECIAL STITCHES & TECHNIQUES

Written & Photo Tutorial: https://tinyurl.com/v9aatne

  • 2dctog: YO, insert hook in the space indicated and YO again, pull yarn through, YO and pull through first 2 loops on hook, YO, insert your hook into the same space that you started in, YO, pull yarn through, YO, pull through first 2 loops. YO one last time, without inserting your hook into the space, and pull through all the remaining loops on your hook.

  • 3dctog: Yarn over (YO) hook, insert hook in stitch (st), pull up a loop (lp), 3 loops (lps) on hook, YO hook, pull through 2 lps, YO, insert hook in same st, pull up a lp, 4 lps on hook, YO, pull through 2 lps, 3 lps on hook, YO, insert hook in same st, YO, pull up a lp, 5 lps on hook, YO, draw through 2 lps, 4 lps left on hook, YO draw through all 4 lps left on the hook.

  • XBDC: this stitch is worked over 2 sts: skip the next st, 1 dc in the next st, now go back to the skipped st and work 1 dc behind the first dc – this creates an “X” or, a Crossed Back Double Crochet Stitch. Video: https://tinyurl.com/ybzsyono

  • SHELL: (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the same st or ch sp.

  • CLUSTER: 3 dc in the same st or ch sp.

  • V-ST: (dc, ch 1, dc) in the same st or ch sp.
