Gauge

After blocking, your granny hexagon should measure 5 inches across from the longest point. Where this is not a fitted item, gauge is not as critical.

How to Crochet A Gauge Swatch

I recommend creating one granny hexagon and then blocking to dimensions. See how you like it, make adjustments if needed, then continue to pattern.

Special Crochet Stitches

Puff Stitch: Yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch/space. Yarn over again and pull up a long loop. (Yarn over and insert your hook into the same stitch/space. Yarn over again and pull up a long loop) two more times (7 loops on the hook). Yarn over and pull through the first 6 loops, yarn over and pull through remaining loops.

Stacked Single Puff (Stsc Ps): Insert the hook into the next stitch, yo, pull up a loop, yo and pull through both loops, insert hook in the vertical bar below, yo, pull up a loop (2 loops on the hook), Yo again, insert the hook into the same stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on the hook), Yo again, insert the hook into the same stitch and pull up a loop (6 loops on the hook), Yarn over and pull through the first 5 loops, yarn over and pull through remaining loops.

Magic Circle (MC): Start by creating a loop with your yarn. The tail of the working yarn will be over the working end. Insert your hook into the loop from behind. Yarn over and pull through the loop. Work the stitches as instructed into the loop.

Notes for the Christmas Crochet Ornament

  • Chains at the beginning of the rounds for the puff hexagon are substituted with a Stsc, use a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch of the round is recommended.
  • Before you dive into your project, take a moment to identify the stitches and read through the pattern. Trust me, this small step will make a big difference in your crochet journey!

Quick Tip

Blocking the hexagons by using either a blocking board or a mat and pins will make the process of joining easier. Plus, your project will look sharp and professional.

Joining the Hexagons

When it comes to joining the hexagons, you can use your preferred method. One of my favorites is the flat sl st, and I show this process in the video tutorial.

To prep the first hexagon, we are going to join the last round by slip stitching the first 5 sts in the round. This will get you to the ch 1-space. (Please note, for the smaller hexagon, this is not necessary.)

Next, place your hexagons next to each other, work through the blo of the hexagon closest to you and the flo of the hexagon farther away, and sl st them together. The yarn will be worked from underneath the hexagon.
