This crochet half hexagon tutorial covers the “pointed” half of the hexagon, and is part of my hexagon series which you can find out more about right here.
The pointed half hexagon motif comes in handy when you desire a straight edge along your hexagons. The hexagon has two versions to its halves, this particular half has two sides and 3 corners making up the shape.

How to Crochet the Solid Half Hexagon “Pointed Side”:
Lets begin making a crochet half hexagon, I will go through the first 4 rounds, then from there I will show you how to make it any size.
Make a MR, CH1,
DC, into the MR 7 times, pull MR closed. (7DC)
CH1, turn your work, DC in the first stitch, *(DC, TRC, DC) in the next stitch, DC, in the next stitch,* 3 times. (10DC, 3TRC)
CH1, turn your work, DC in the first 2 stitches, *(DC, TRC, DC) in the next stitch, DC, in the next 3 stitches,* 2 times, (DC, TRC, DC,) in the next stitch, DC in the last 2 stitches. (16DC, 3TRC)
CH1, turn your work, DC in the first 3 stitches, *(DC, TRC, DC) in the next stitch, DC, in the next 5 stitches,* 2 times, (DC, TRC, DC,) in the next stitch, DC in the last 3 stitches. (22DC, 3TRC)
Growing Your Solid Half Hexagon:
While working the first 4 rows, you may have noticed things start to repeat themselves. In order to keep growing we will just want to keep a few things in mind I’ve gathered a list to help you grow your own;
- The first thing to point out is that the pointed crochet half hexagon increases by 6 stitches total in each row.
- In row 2, the first “corners” are made, the stitches that contain the (DC, TRC, DC) stitches in them are a “corner” stitches.
- As you increase your half hexagon, the stitches along the sides will grow. When starting and ending you should have 1 more stitch than the starting and ending side of the previous row, and for the 2 full sides between the corners you will have 2 additional stitches for each row. For example in row 3 we started off with 2DC before reaching our first corner, in row 4 we start with 3DC. Then we work the two full sides which will increase by 2DC for each row, finally we ended with 2 stitches after our last corner in row 3, so in row 4 we should end with 3 stitches.
- When creating corners for additional rows, always place the corner stitches (DC, TRC, DC) in the TRC stitch from the previous round.
- Be sure to use just DC stitches when starting and ending the row, you will be making half a side at the start and end of the row.
Lets grow this hexagon a bit more following these tips:
CH1, turn your work, DC in the first 4 stitches, *(DC, TRC, DC) in the next stitch, DC, in the next 7 stitches,* 2 times, (DC, TRC, DC,) in the next stitch, DC in the last 4 stitches. (27DC, 4TRC)
That should be all you need to grow your own, I’ll leave you with a photo of a 7 row half hexagon, enjoy!
