Didn't feel like messing around with the pentagons, so I changed up to a hexagon.
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- flower color
- background color
- J hook
Size: 6 1/4" side to side
- 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
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.

I like it. Corners look good to me.ReplyDelete
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. lolReplyDelete
So luving this !!!!!!! super cute...ReplyDelete
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,

i like it both ways. i guess it would depend which one is easier~would be the one i'd pick ;) hope you are well and that your holidays were relaxing!ReplyDelete
Pretty motif Debi. Your corners look fine to me; nice and crisp. I like the pink and white together. Have a great day. :-)ReplyDelete
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. :)ReplyDelete
I like it :) It would make a cool hot pad if you used cotton yarn.ReplyDelete
They both look great , I guess it is what you are happy with :))ReplyDelete
Both the pentagon and the hexagon are gorgeous, as usual for your projects. Looking forward to seeing some attached together.ReplyDelete
