The Sweet Dreams Hexagon Cardigan I made a few years ago has been one of my most popular crochet designs to date. It is crocheted with Aran weight yarn and two different shades too.

Crochet Feminine Hexagon Cardigan Free Pattern: The Yarn

The Polina Half Circle Shawl is beautiful and features the Mandala Baby yarn in shade Narnia. Another lovely project featuring Mandala yarn is The Harlequin Shawl. I love these crochet projects so much, and I hope you will too!

Variegated yarn is a very good way to have different colored projects without having to switch colors as we work. These colors change naturally when using variegated yarn, which I love. This romantic prayer shawl is perfect if you are looking for an easy yet delicate shawl to crochet with two different colors.

I hope you like these projects!

Notes

I will be writing in US terms (British terms in brackets)

Materials

2 skeins (sizes XS/S), 3 skeins (sizes M/L/XL), 4 skeins (sizes XXL/XXXL) of Mandala Yarn by Lion Brand in shade Wood Nymph

1 skein of Bernat Softee Baby in shade Antique White

A 4,5 mm crochet hook

A tapestry needle

A pair of scissors

Gauge

4” (10 cm) x 4” (10 cm) = 4 rounds of hexagon

Sizes of finished cardigan

These are the sizes measured once cardigan has been assembled, including the edgings and borders, and excluding sleeves.

Sizes are referred as follows: height (shoulder to bottom) x width (shoulder to shoulder).

Because this is a hexagon cardigan, the sleeves are wide for each size, and they are just worked up automatically while we crochet both our hexagons to form cardigan. Therefore, they automatically are bigger if you crochet a bigger size (ie add more rounds to each hexagon).

Size S:

26,5” (67 cm) in length x 24” (61 cm) in width

Size M:

28” (71 cm) in length x 27” (68,5 cm) in width

Size L:

29,5” (74,5 cm) in length x 30” (76 cm) in width

Size XL:

31” (78 cm) in length x 33” (84 cm) in width

Size XXL:

32,5” (82 cm) in length x 36” (91,5 cm) in width

Abbreviations

sk: skip

SP: space

St: stitch

SC: Single Crochet (= UK Double Crochet)

DC: Double Crochet (=UK Treble Crochet)

HDC: Half Double Crochet (=UK Half Treble Crochet)

General notes concerning this pattern and crochet hexagons

Hexagons do not lie flat whilst you crochet them, they are instead wavy. Please note this is completely normal and once have finished each hexagon (we will be crocheting 2), we will be placing them flat and folded in such a way that they will lie flat and create the shape of the cardigan.

The fact that each hexagon does not lie flat as you crochet it is not a mistake.

Corner spaces will always feature 3 chains, and the side spaces always feature 1 chain.

The chain 3 at the beginning of each round counts as a DC throughout.

There will always be 6 corners per row for each hexagon. Each corner will be comprised of 3 DC, ch 3, 3 DC.

Begin pattern here

Create your hexagon (you will be making 2 identical hexagons)Β 

Ch 5, sl st to first ch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 (=DC), 2 DC within the ring (=3 DC total); [ch 3, 3 DC] 5 times, ch 3, sl st to first ch 3 to close round.

Round 1

Round 2: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, work 2 DC in ch 3 sp from previous row (=3 DC total), ch 3, 3 DC into same sp;

[ch 1, place 3 DC, ch 3, 3 DC into next ch 3 from previous row] until eor. Ch 1, sl st to 1st ch 3 to close round.

Next rows
Next rows

We are now starting to see this pattern being worked up more clearly. As the hexagon will grow, we will have more β€œside” clusters of 3 DC, and have 6 clusters of 3 DC, ch 3, 3 DC which are the corners (we will always have the same number of corners which is 6 throughout).

Round 5-22 (S), 24 (M), 26 (L), 28 (XL), 30 (XXL), 32 (XXXL): repeat row 4, always adding 1 cluster of 3 DC per side per round as you increase your rounds. Of course, there will always be only 6 corners per round as you go along, where you will be placing 3 DC, ch 3, 3 DC.

Now place both hexagons side by side, folding them so as to form the shape of a cardigan.
