Tiny Hexagons Scarf...

This so pretty scarf is made with what appears to be several strands of lace weight yarn held together and changing colors in every row.
In my version, fingering weight, self striping yarn is used... that way we hope that the hexagons won't have the same colors without having to change in every row, which allow us to not to have to use lots of balls in different colors and weave tons of ends...
The yarn I'm using is Mini Mochi from Crystal Palace... A Slow Striping fingering weight, single ply yarn, 80% Merino Wool-20% Nylon, 195 yds/50g ball, in a pretty color that I think is called Rainbow Trout. The hook is a D or E.
I made the first hexagons in a class and blocked them after that... it made a huge difference and I think is the way it should be done:::
However, I thought about all the sewing that would be needed at the end with so many hexagons, so I decided to join as I go...
Every time I get to a corner I join with another(s) hexagon(s). I'm planning on making half of the skein in single hexis and then join them with the rest as I go. This so I can play a little bit with the colors and mix them in a fun way and not necesarily as they come out of the ball.
Here's the pattern I'm using:::

Multi-hexagon Crochet Scarf

Hexagon Pattern:
Ch 3, sl st to make a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 4 (counts as first dc + 1 ch), (dc in the ring, ch 1) 5 times, sl st on 3rd ch (6 dc + 6 ch-1 sps)
Rnd 2: ch 3, dc in same st, (2dc, ch 1) in each ch-1 sp, sl st in first dc (12 dc)
Rnd 3: ch 3, dc in same st, *(2dc, ch1, 2dc) in ch-1 sp, 2dc in next dc* repeat from * all the way around, sl st in first dc.  Fasten off

Half Hexagon Pattern: (use for side panels)
Ch 3, sl st to make a ring.
Rnd 1: ch 3, 5 dc into ring (6 dc)... Do not join to close the round.
Rnd 2: ch 3, turn, (2dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, 2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next dc (8 dc and 2 ch-1 sp)
Rnd 3: ch 3, turn, dc in same st, [2 dc in next dc, (2dc, ch1, 2 dc) in ch-1 sp] twice; 2 dc in each of next 2 dc.  Fasten off

You would need 3 full hexagons and 1 half for each scarf row. And about 120 full and 40 halfs for the whole scarf.

Let me know if you make one! I'd love to see a picture!
See you soon!


  1. That scarf is beautiful! I love your idea. I was thinking about how much work it would be to change colors so many times!!

  2. It's so pretty! I like it. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving Shanti. :)

  3. Hi Shanti,

    What a beautiful scarf! Crocheting is not my best skill ;) so I think am only going to enjoy the creations of others, but thank you for sharing the pattern!

    Have a wonderful day!


  4. I just found your site. I love this scarf.
    What is the total amount of yarn needed to
    make it?

    1. Hi MaryQ

      I didn't finished the whole scarf because we already had a sample and I made the pattern just for the class... Then I got caught with other projects so my hexagons are still sitting in my project bag.
      I don't think one ball would be enough because all the tails are "waste yarn" meaning that is yarn you wont be using for the scarf so it gives you less yardage per ball... but I'd guess that you'd be fine with 2 balls.

      Have a great day!

  5. Shanti - do you have a photo of your finished scraf? Thanks,

    1. Hi!!

      If you see my previous answer you'll see I didn't finish the scarf...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely comment!
