Gather your supplies:

The yarn used in this pattern is Patons Cotton Blend 8 ply 50g:

  • Yellow 6
  • Orange 7
  • Pink 15
  • Apple green 16

You will also need a 4.5mm crochet hook.

Tension: The hexagon flower pattern measures 12cm in diameter from stitch to stitch, using a 4.5mm crochet hook.

Check your voltage carefully as measurements and quantities listed for all items are based on this voltage.

If the design is more than 12 cm in diameter, use a smaller hook, if it measures less, use a larger hook.
