The crochet hexagon is essential for many Amigurumi creations. The hexagon cannot only be used as nose, wings, ears and spots on a body but also as base for the most essential 3-dimensional Amigurumi shapes, the sphere and all their variations.

Even though a hexagon is no circle, as the name clearly indicates, so is the hexagon mostly called “circle” in many crochet patterns. This is so because it comes very close to an actual circle when crocheted not too big. Especially when crocheted as base for a 3-dimensional shape are the 6 corners not obviously visible anymore.

But I guess the main reason for using hexagons instead of actual circles is that they are very easy to crochet.

But not only inside the Amigurumi world is the hexagon a widely used shape. With a bigger yarn and crochet hook you can crochet easy potholders, coasters, blankets, ponchos and more.
