Hexagon Hudson Baby Blanket
Crochet is a popular craft that allows people to create beautiful and functional items. One popular crochet project is the hexagon baby blanket. The hexagon shape provides a unique design that can be customized with different colors and patterns. The Hudson Baby Blanket is a popular version of the hexagon baby blanket that has been used by many crocheters. In this article, we will provide a step-by-step guide to crochet a Hexagon Hudson Baby Blanket.
Yarn (preferably a soft and durable yarn like acrylic)
Crochet hook (appropriate for your chosen yarn weight)
Step 1: Choose your yarn and hook size
The first step in creating a Hexagon Hudson Baby Blanket is to choose your yarn and hook size. It is important to choose a yarn that is soft and durable, as it will be used to create a cozy and comforting blanket for a baby. Acrylic yarn is a popular choice for baby blankets as it is soft, easy to care for, and comes in a variety of colors. Choose a hook size that is appropriate for your chosen yarn weight. The size of your hook will determine the size of your finished hexagons.
Step 2: Crochet your first hexagon
To begin creating your hexagon, make a magic ring with your chosen yarn. Chain 2, and then make 12 double crochet stitches into the ring. Slip stitch to the first double crochet to join the round. This will form the center of your hexagon.
Next, chain 3 and make 2 double crochet stitches into the same stitch as the chain. Skip the next stitch, and then make 3 double crochet stitches into the next stitch. Repeat this pattern (skip one stitch, 3 double crochet stitches into the next stitch) until you have six clusters of 3 double crochet stitches. Slip stitch to the top of the beginning chain 3 to join the round.
Step 3: Create additional hexagons
To create additional hexagons, repeat step 2 until you have the desired number of hexagons. It is recommended to create at least 40 hexagons for a baby blanket, but you can make as many as you like. Remember to use different colors and patterns to create a unique design.
Step 4: Join hexagons together
Once you have all of your hexagons, it is time to join them together to create the blanket. To join the hexagons, you will need to use a slip stitch. Hold two hexagons together with the right sides facing each other. Insert your hook through the corner stitch of both hexagons, and then make a slip stitch to join them together. Continue to join the remaining sides of the hexagons until you have a row of hexagons. Repeat this process until all of the hexagons are joined together.
Step 5: Add a border
To finish your Hexagon Hudson Baby Blanket, add a border. Choose a color that complements your hexagons and then make a row of single crochet stitches around the entire blanket. You can then add additional rows of single crochet stitches or choose another border stitch to complete the look.
Step 6: Weave in ends and block the blanket
Once your border is complete, weave in all of the loose ends of yarn using a yarn needle. To block your blanket, wet it with cold water and then lay it flat to dry. This will help to smooth out any wrinkles and ensure that your blanket is the correct size.
In conclusion, the Hexagon Hudson Baby Blanket is a beautiful and customizable project that is perfect for crocheters of all skill levels. By following these six steps, you can create a cozy and comforting blanket.
