Hexis in Springtime, a free crochet hexagon motif blanket pattern

Add love to every stitch when you crochet Hexis in Springtime, a FREE pattern designed in collaboration with WeCrochet.

My love for motif projects in never ending, especially when they’re baby blankets. There’s just something about taking my time, working each motif, placing them just so, and assembling them into something precious and timeless. Hexis in Springtime is my homage to the crochet hexagon motif and was a joy to make using Brava Worsted, a premium acrylic yarn from WeCrochet.

Not Just Another Hexagon Blanket

If you’re a fan of crochet motifs like me, you know that there are gorgeous hexagon blankets all over the internet. As much as I like those projects, I wasn’t able to find one that really spoke to me. Then I found out what was missing – clean lines.

Hexagons have 6 sides. To make them fit well together, you have to stagger their construction. And, if you don’t make half-hexis for the sides, you’ll have uneven corners and edges. Call me a stickler, but I like a straight line.

When designing Hexis in Springtime, I took the time to create even rows and columns, filling the empty spaces with triangles and diamonds. I was able to achieve a design that looked classic, clean, and easily took on the border I added.

An Heirloom On Any Budget

When it comes to making baby blankets, I believe that the beauty and effort of something handmade will shine regardless of how much you spend on materials. Hexis in Springtime is designed with Brava Worsted, a premium acrylic yarn from WeCrochet. At only $1.99 per ball, you can make Hexis in Springtime for less than $20!

Brava Worsted has a vast collection of colors, over 45 in total. The color combinations for Hexis in Springtime are endless. I went for a combination of peach, mint, and gray. But I could also see this blanket made in a classic soft gray and white combination, rainbow, pastel, or even a modern palette of neutral greens and golds. Let your creativity lead you to the perfect palette.

    This is such a beautiful pattern! I plan on making one for my new Grand niece. I was wondering if it was possible to make it bigger? My son really likes the design. I have followed you for several years now and I have never been disappointed!
