~ flower hexagon ~

Didn't feel like messing around with the pentagons, so I changed up to a hexagon.

Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
   - flower color
   - background color
- J hook

Size:  6 1/4" side to side

Notes: 
- I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
- The ch 2 at the beginning of Rnds 1 & 2 do not count as a stitch

Directions:
Rnd 1:  With flower color ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  (12 dc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join as before.  (24 dc)

Rnd 3:  for petals - working this rnd in front loops only, ch 1, sc in same dc as joining.  2 dc in each of next 2 dc.  *sc in next dc, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  End off.

Rnd 3:  for background - join background color to any back loop of Rnd 2.  (ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in same st, dc in next 3 back loops.  *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next back loop, dc in next 3 back loops.  Repeat from * 4 more times.  Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3. 

Rnd 4:  Ch 3, dc in each dc around with (dc, ch 2, dc) in each corner ch 2 space.  Join as before.

Rnd 5:  Sl st into next dc, (ch 3, 2 dc) in same dc, skip next dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next corner ch 2 space.  *skip next dc, 3 dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc, skip next dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next corner ch 2 space.  Repeat from * 4 more times.  Skip next dc, 3 dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc, join as before.

Rnd 6:  Ch 1, sc in same st.  Sc in each dc around with (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner ch 2 space.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  End off.

  2. I rather like this one, the corners look okay in the picture but if you're not happy maybe you should change them, I know what it's like when you make things, I think we are sometime too critical of our work. lol

  4. Hi Debi,
    Thank you for your lovely comment, hopefully I'll feel better soon. I love the corners of your hexagon, they're very precise. I have your next granny square ready and will post it in the next few days, hopefully it won't take so long this time.
    Lots of love,

  6. Pretty motif Debi. Your corners look fine to me; nice and crisp. I like the pink and white together. Have a great day. :-)

  7. Yes I like the hexagon better too and so much easier to join up. The corners look fine to me too and once they are joined you won't notice them anyway. :)
