If you’re on the lookout for an easy crochet cardigan pattern, this post is definitely for you! Hexagon cardi patterns will show you how to make a beautiful garment with simple hexagonal shapes.
You will be amazed at how easy these free crochet patterns are, and how quickly you can make them. While many projects have written patterns, some have accompanying video tutorials, which make the work even easier.
The examples below mainly use granny stitch, but there are many ways to crochet hexagon cardigans. Use basic stitches, such as double crochet, or go for fancy ones – alpine stitch, bobbles, or stitch combinations. What you will need for sure is a good quality yarn, a crochet hook in the right size, and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
These projects are great for beginners because they easily accommodate larger sizes. It’s you who decide how big your hexagons will be, and it greatly impacts the size of the garment itself.
