Just as in nature, this snowflake hexagon pattern gives rise to many possibilities. Even without the overlay crochet, this hexagon is beautiful and ripe for experimentation with different color combinations. Adding even one round of the overlay adds another dimension. Then, going one step further to the second round of the overlay will have you crocheting furiously to keep up with all the ideas bursting from your creativity!
Gauge/Size: First 4 rnds measure 5 inches (12.7 cm) from point to point. Finished hexagon measures 12 inches (31 cm) from point to point.
Materials: Approximately 85 to 90 yds (1.7 oz.) worsted–weight yarn for each hexagon. Each round can be worked in a different color or the entire hexagon can be worked with only two colors. Samples in photographs use Red Heart Super Saver Solids in the following colors: A: White; B: Light blue; C: Delft blue; D: Blue; E: Soft navy. Approx 15 to 20 yds of each color.
In this pattern, you will learn a new technique called the “Angled Picot,” which yields a nice sharp point, like a snowflake!
