Hexagon Burst: Free Pattern 

I am so excited to finally offer my Hexagon Burst free pattern to you all! This hexie was made with the classic Sunburst square in mind (hey-hey Priscilla Hewitt – my crochet idol!) but I made 2DC clusters in place of the puff stitches, and I added an oversized outer petal round. Oh yeah, and I jammed a zillion petals on it.. 🙂

Blanket info

  • Scheepjes ColourCrafter Velvet* – DK weight – One ball each, colors: 860-Fonda, 855-Chaplin, 850-Crawford, 844-Hepburn, 841-Kelly, 851-Gardner, 852-Garland, 848-Rogers, 856-Grant, 858-Martin, 859-Burton, 854-Turner, 853-Leigh
  • Size H hook for body and G hook for final Border round.
  • Size: 50×64″

Here’s a general outline of how the blanket is constructed.

First, make the pretty motifs!

Once you make all the motifs, join them with your favorite method! I’ve been crushing hard on the Flat Zipper Join by Dedri Uys. Any join will work, so use your fave!

If I’m honest, I used my freebie SC PLT join on the blanket in the photos, but I didn’t include it in the pattern because I wanted to avoid complexity. By all means, read up on it and join as you go on Round/Row 9 of motifs. Go wild!

In the actual pattern, I describe a simpler join method involving slip st through back loops only.

Once all motifs are joined, we’ll square off the zig-zag edges and make the 7-round Big Leaf Border. And ta-da! Done! 🙂

    • You’re very welcome! I love it too – it’s one of my favorites that I’ve made, mostly bc the yarn has so much personality. It has an instant cozy feeling, but maintains that rockin’ vibe. Lurve it!

  1. Love it, love it, love it. Thank you so so much for the pattern. You are an angel to create such beautiful work and share it with the rest of us.

  2. I’m making this and loving it. Can’t wait to post pics!!
    I’m struggling a little with the side gap fills. Here’s the instruction:

    Row 3 Beg DC, DC3tog, DC in next 11 sts, DC3tog (note: these 3 sts are ch sp, dec, ch sp), DC in next 11 sts, DC4tog _2 DC4tog, 1 DC3tog, 22 DC total_ Turn work.
    Row 4 Beg DC, DC3tog, DC in next 3 sts, DC3tog, DC in next 3 sts, DC4tog _2 DC4tog, 1 DC3tog, 6 DC total_ Turn

    In row 3 there are 11 DC on each side of center (22 total). Then in row 4 you make the first 4 stitches into one, DC in the next 3 and there are still 4 stitches before the center but instructions are to DC 3 tog (at the center?) before seemingly starting back on the other side of center. I can’t figure this part out!

    Thanks for a great pattern. I have loved it. Just need a little help over the finish line!

    • Hi there! I’ll take a close look at this on Monday – sorry for this delay! I don’t want to hastily look at it, so I’ll need a quiet headspace of the morning workday hours to get it right 🙂
      Happy crafting! Looking forward to seeing pics,
      Rachele C.

    • I am also having the same problem with the side gap. I also have the same number of stitches “too many” to do as the instructions say.

  3. Side gap pieces:Steps 4, 5 and 6 do not work, starting with step 4. I have tried to modify step 4 to get it to work, but then 5 and 6 do not work out. I need help with these pieces so I can finish this item.

  4. It looks like there is a missing row! Row 4 should be included as:

    Row 4: Beg DC, DC3tog, DC in 7 sts, DC3tog, DC in 7 sts, DC4tog

    Then continue on in pattern for what would now be Rows 5,6,7 👌🏻

    Thank you! I’ll update the pattern soon!
    Rachele C.

    • Thank you Rachele!! I finally got a chance to sit down with it tonight and it works beautifully! 11 more side gaps to go… and a border! 🙂
