This Crochet Flower Hexie is Coming Up Roses

crochet hexagon

Good news: crocheted flowers and hexie motifs are a perfect match. We love these worked up in a rainbow of colors — just join them together for an afghan full of gorgeous blooms. If joining’s not your thing, these motifs stand on their own as placemats, too. Add a few extra rounds with your final color until you have the size you need.

    Rnd 2: Join the next color yarn into any chain space . Ch 3 and 1 dc into that space. 2 dc into the next 11 chain spaces. Close with a sl st, fasten off and weave in ends. You will have a circle with 24 dc stitches.

    Rnd 3: Join your next color yarn into any space between the pairs of dc stitches in Round 2. Ch 3 (counts as one dc) and 2 dc into the ch space. This is the first side of your hexagon.
