I crocheted this small hexagon using left over white thread from a previous project though I imagine this pattern would look fantastic worked up with vibrant color yarn.   The materials I used are a size 3 crochet thread with a size 0 crochet hook.  While I have not tested this pattern using any other type of yarn I am pretty certain  it can be worked up in a worsted weight yarn as well.   My example measures approximately  3.5 inches

3dc cluster:
dc 3x’s holding onto the last chain of each dc, yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook  ( yo, insert into stitch, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through 1 loop* rep 2x more, yo, pull through all 4 loops on hook.)

Pattern:
Beg Round.  chain 5, sl to form a ring.

Round 2.    Beg 3dc cluster in ring, ch 3, *(3dc cluster in ring, ch3) 5x = 6 3dc clusters & 6 ch3 spaces.

Round 3. Sl to first ch3 sp, beg 3dc cluster, ch3, 3dc cluster all in same space, ch3 (3dc cluster, ch3, 3dc cluster, ch3)  in each ch3 sp around. Sl to Beg 3dc cluster of previous round.

Round 4. Sl to first ch3 sp. beg 3dc cluster in first ch3 sp. (3dc cluster, ch3, 3dc cluster in next ch3 sp, 3dc cluster in next ch 3 sp) around. sl to beg 3dc cluster of previous round.

Round 5.  Sl to first ch3 sp, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, (3dc,ch2,3dc in next ch3 sp. 3dc in next 2 ch3 sp’s) around. Sl to join. bo, weave in ends.
