A cute little hexagon made with unusual stitches.

Tessa’s Triangles - Hexagon crochet pattern

Make one little hexagon and you have a coaster. Make more hexagons and you can make a bag and with a little patience maybe even a blanket.

Introducing New Techniques

Tessa’s Triangles hexagon pattern is an introductory pattern. Learning how to work these stitches is the key to more advanced patterns. Another pattern is coming up soon at StoneGnome.com. You might also get ideas for making some on your own after making the hexagon. 

Tessa’s Triangles is a free pattern and is available in English and Danish.

Tricky Parts

There ARE tricky parts in Tessa’s Triangles. Finding the right spot to insert the hook, when making waistcoat stitches in a round is probably new to pretty much all crocheters. It took me a while to figure out too.

Round 1 is tricky. So much is going on at the same time. Work slowly and take your time. 

Cheat tips to get you started.
  1. Make a one-colored sample to begin with.
  2. exchange the ws in rnd 1 with loose(!) sc*. (Make ws from rnd 2.)
  3. make chains instead of slip stitches.
* It will not give you a nice star in the middle.

Anita Reinehr did tech-edit on the pattern and suggested inserting a stitch marker between the legs of every stitch of the first round, to be able to find them. See her photo on Instagram.

Visual Learner?

To support the written pattern, a video is available. Some parts might be easier to do if you see how I do it.
