Crochet Video Tutorial: Hexagon Granny Square (traditional style)


My new Video: https://youtu.be/O0ikfaI6NOg

This is my new video. Learn how to do a Traditional style Hexagon Granny Square. If you've done a Traditional Granny Square then this will be very familiar.

At the beginning of each row you will slip stitch to the next chain 1 space. It's only 1 slip stitch, not multiple. You don't have far to go. The reason you do this is because you want your corners to be nice a crisp.  If you want to change yarns just start in any chain 1 space.

Chain 5 and join 
Size: 5 rows is 7 inches 
Hook: H/8/5.0mm (6 U.K.)

Abbreviations: 
DC - Double Crochet
ch - chain
Corner - (2dc,ch1,2dc) ch1


Round 1:
Chain 3, Do 1dc in ring, chain 1, (2dc ch1) in ring 5 times more . Join in the top of the beginning chain 3

Round 2: Slip st to next chain 1 space.  Ch 3, Do (DC, ch1, 2dc) in same space
Ch 1. Do (2dc, ch1, 2dc, ch1) in each chain 1 space.
Join in the top of the beginning chain 3
