Jacob's Hex Crocheted Motif




This motif was created for Round 3 of the Scavenger Hunt Crochet Motif Swap, but was inspired by fantasticmio's amazing Jacob's Snakes and Ladders blanket. And then, when she posted a tutorial for the Jacob's Ladder, and made it look so easy, I decided to give it a try.

Jacob's Hex
designed by craftADDchick (CJ Gould), April 2012

Ch 15

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 10, dc in last 2 dc (4 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in next dc, ch 10, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (6 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 3: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st, ch 10, dc in next st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (8 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 4: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 st, ch 10, dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (10 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 5: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 3 st, ch 10, dc in next 3 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (12 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 6: ch 3, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 4 st, ch 10, dc in next 4 st, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next st (14 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)
   - Put stitch markers at each end of the row

Row 7: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 4 st, ch 10, dc in next 4 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (12 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 8: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 3 st, ch 10, dc in next 3 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (10 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 9: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next 2 st, ch 10, dc in next 2 st, dc2tog, dc in next st (8 dc, 1 ch 10 sp)

Row 10: ch 3, dc2tog, dc in next st, ch 6, dc in next st, dc2tog, dc in next st (6 dc, 1 ch 6 sp)

Row 11: ch 3, dc 2 tog, ( Follow fantasticmio's tutorial for linking the chains!), sc 1 in last loop, dc2tog, dc in next st (4 dc, 1 sc)

Row 12: ch 1, turn, sc evenly around, putting 3 stitches in each corner and 3 stitches at the marked ends of Row 6.
   - Slip stitch to first sc, fasten off ,weave in ends.


It stitched up pretty quickly, and I think they'd look pretty cool in a bunch of colors all stitched together. I think they'll "tesselate" together pretty well.

Note: The photo is of the first one I made. I made a couple of slight modifications to the pattern to make the border round look neater and to get the side corner "points" more even looking. The pattern hasn't been tested by anyone but me, so if you try it and find any mistakes, please let me know!

I've been fascinated by those tutorials too, and still haven't tried it! Aargh! Thanks for sharing the pattern, this might be the right thing to give the ladder a try. Do you know what your partner made from the hex?

I don't know if she's made anything yet. Since it was part of the motif swap, it was all about random motifs. I know that my solo hex will be part of a larger motif blanket. But, I'm looking at some pink and ruby yarn that could become a set of hexes once I find some other colors. Then, I think I might take a stab at a pillow... I'll be on a road trip at the end of the week and crocheting keeps me from getting car sick, so I may have to make some along the way. In fact, I think I'll try to find a complimentary yarn in the next day or two so I'm ready to go!
