Scrappy Crochet Granny Hexie Blanket (say that five times fast!)

 I'm not great with words (especially this past week...I've left many sentences unfinished! Teething babies will have that effect on you, haha)

I had so many questions about my scrappy blanket, if you've been following me for a while you know I made MANY attempts. I tried the mitered squares, the arrows, simple garter stitch, crochet grannies, granny stripe....but I didn't like anything. So I walked away from it for a bit, but I still had Otis picking my colors because he loves it so much. 

I finally decided to pick up my crochet hook again and voila! I decided to not follow a pattern and just wing it and I'm super happy with how everything is progressing. 

Below you will find the pattern *It's been a minute since I did this, so I apologize in advance if it's hard to read!*

For my blanket, I am using fingering weight mini skeins held double. Some hexies I'm holding one color double, some I'm holding two colors together to achieve a bit of marling - it's super fun. I am using a 5mm crochet hook.

You could attempt this the same way I am, or you could add a border, or even make them larger by continuing your rounds. But, before I get too ahead of myself, here is the pattern I am using (completely made up on a whim!)

Hello Stella Granny Hexie

Begin by Chaining 4 stitches, join in the round with a slip stitch.

Chain 4

Chain 2 (this will be your first double crochet. Traditionally it's a chain 3, but I find the Ch 2 is neater.)

Double Crochet into the center, Chain 1

Work *2Dc, Ch1* . repeat this until you have 6 clusters of 2 double crochet (or 12 Dc and 6 Chain stitches). Slip stitch to the top of your beginning Chain 2. 

12 Dc, 6 Ch1

Chain 3

In the next Chain 1 space, work *3Dc, Ch3, 3Dc. Chain 1* Repeat this until you have made your way around to your beginning Chain 3.

3 Dc, Ch 3, 3 Dc

Slip Stitch in the second chain st, pull the yarn and cut leaving a 3-inch tail (to be weaved in.)

Finished Hexie


For the join-as-you-go method, it's really simple once you work your first one! You're substituting Chain stitches with Slip Stitches to attach your grannies together. This can be used on any shape of granny.

    I am loving this pattern, I have been working up a few hexies as I find myself with a small scrap ball of color from other projects. If I have a large amount left over I am working a beautiful square to add to a scrappy granny square sweater and some hexies for my hexie blanket. I LOVE your join as you go method! So quick and easy!
