I had to get up and get my tape measure to determine what size this hexagon area rug would be. I have no sense of measurement. I love how this turned out but I don't think it is really cost effective. Red Heart super saver yarn is really economical but for this pattern is requires you use four strands while working. This little area would could potentially cost you $25 or more.

I am in need of new rugs because of a move to a house. We now have hard wood floors that I absolutely love but I know I am going to miss carpet when it really gets cold. Making my own rug will allow me to tailor the color and size. I like this design. Thanks for sharing this quality crochet pattern.


This is so pretty and it seems like it wouldn't take forever since you use 4 strands. The long hdc is a new stitch for me, so I hope I can get the hang of it. Thanks!

it would be nice to have a video on how to make this rug

I have made a different rug and it seems unfinished without a backing. How do you recommend backing a rug. If I use sheeting will it slip? is there a non skid backing for rugs?

It has a Celtic look. I will be making this one. Thanks for sharing the pattern,.

please!!! it's spelled "HEXAGON"

I don't see where it's misspelled (?)

Looks interesting can't wait toy try!!!
