Free Crochet Granny Snowflake Hexagon Pattern
Granny Snowflake Hexagon – Pattern Info
This Granny Snowflake Hexagon is easy to make and looks gorgeous when turned into blankets, afghans, shawls, hats, or cardigans today I will show you how to crochet it.
If you are looking for a last-minute project that you can make and turn into a gift, check out my Christmas Snowflakes Afghan that I made with this granny snowflake hexagon (pattern coming soon!).
For this tutorial, I only crocheted one extra round in red using Aran yarn (light worsted #4 yarn), but you can adjust its size by making more or less red rounds around the snowflake or by using thicker or thinner yarn.
Scroll down below for the written row-by-row pattern and the video tutorial I made for those who learn better from seeing how it’s done.

Picot Stitch (pst) – ch3, sl st in the base stitch (NOT the base chain) by inserting the hook through the middle of the stitch and behind the loops.
Double Crochet Cluster (dc cl) – *yo, insert hook in the ch space, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through only the first 2 loops on the hook* x 2, yo and pull through all 3 loops on the hook
Long Double Crochet (Ldc) – A long double crochet is made just like the regular double crochet, except you insert the hook 2 spaces below and pull up a longer loop.
- ch3 at the beginning of each row counts as a dc stitch
- ch2 at the beginning of the round counts as an incomplete double crochet
- stitches contained within ** are the repeat section for that row
- stitches contained within ( ) are made in the same chain space
- TIP: To make the hexagon larger, repeat round 6 as many times as you like.

Good day Ms. Adriana,
I just love the way you make your snowflake motif easier that I was taught . I been watching by your video. Yours is much more easier even for a beginner if I must say so. All, I can say is this the more beautiful colors you design your snowflake the prettier the snowflake will grow, keep up the good work. I love it!!!!MERRY CHRISTMAS TO Y OU MY DEAR.
