JOINING:

Special Joining: The Flat Slip Stitch Join

Below I have a video tutorial from Blitzy showing how to Flat slip join 2 granny squares – the same method applies to my hexagons. You will use the BACK-LOOPS to join – each hexagon has 13 stitches on each side PLUS a corner stitch. Match up the corner stitches and 13 side stitches of each hexagon.

With C

Using the Flat Slip join ( or your preferred method of joining) – join the last 2 of the half hexagons in the remaining corners – Note: you will join only 2 sides.

With C

You will have 2 flat sides (left & right and 2 wavy sides (bottom & top)

Concentration is required for next section!

NOTE: corners are worked into the corner SC of a hexagon – you will start on a flat side corner – which will be a FULL hexagon.

RND 1: Starting in the corner of a flat side – work [1 SC; 2 CH; 1 SC] for corner; *work 14 SC across first hexagon (full); (work 1 SC before join and 1 SC after join; work 15 SC across next hexagon) 5 times; work [1 SC; 2 CH; 1 SC] for corner.
Wavy edge – work 14 SC across first hexagon (half); (work 1 SC before join and 1 SC after join; work 29 SC across next hexagon) 4 times; work [1 SC; 2 CH; 1 SC] for corner.**

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
