The last time I shared a proper crochet tutorial with you was back on November 5, 2011. That was more than a year ago! I can't believe it! That was very lazy of me. Typically me! So here is one. This hexagon would make a lovely Christmas tree ornament.
To say the truth I didn't have any snowflake or hexagon in my mind while creating this. I was working on a flower for a flower scarf and surfing the net simultaneously. I went wrong somewhere and instead of a flower I ended up with a hexagon. Anyway it looked pretty, so I made a few changes here and there and made this lovely christmas tree ornament.
It measures about 5.5 x 5.5 inches. I used light worsted weight/DK yarn and a size H/5.00 mm hook. If you want a smaller hexagon you can replace the hook with a smaller one.
