How to Crochet Hexagons in Spiral Rounds

This post is also available in: Español

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 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.

In addition, it is very easy to crochet even without instructions, once you learn the relatively easy pattern.

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

The depicted Hexagon has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook.
