In this tutorial we shall see how to make this hexagon shaped beaded coaster / table mat. It can be made as small as or as big as you want.

Pick up six beads.

Tie a knot with the two ends of the thread. This will form the hexagon in the middle.

Pass needle through one bead. Now we are ready to form the first hexagon in the next row.

Pick up 5 beads and complete hexagon by passing needle through the same bead (A) in the same direction one more time.

The next hexagon will be formed with bead B as base.

Bring needle in position by passing it through B.

This time we will picking up only 4 beads because we will borrow one from the previous hexagon.

Second hexagon done. Continue for all the 6 beads (A  – F).

For the final hexagon of the row, pick up only 3 beads.

Now we are ready for next row.

Bring needle to correct position by weaving it through beads so that it is now coming out of one of the 6 angles.

Pick 5 beads and pass needle through the same yellow bead in the same direction.

A hexagon has 6 sides and 6 angles. From this row, we will be treating the sides and angles differently.

Hexagons formed in the sides will use 2 yellow beads (from previous row) and those formed in the angles will use only one yellow bead as we did above.

So this time, pass needle through 2 yellow beads to bring it to position.

Pick up 3 beads. All hexagons will share one bead each with hexagons on both sides.

The next bead is an ‘angle’ bead. So we will be using only one yellow bead in the next hexagon.

Continue making hexagons.

To end that row, make sure you count beads that will be shared with hexagons on both sides.

For the next row (and all future rows), we will follow the same rules. Use one ‘angle’ bead and use two ‘side’ beads to form hexagons.

Hexagon beaded coaster is ready. You can also add more rows and make it into a table mat.
