Well this post is in preparation for what I did with all those hexagons!

This post is how to continuously join hexagons together, leaving only 2 ends to sew in (how happy does this make me!).

Yarn wise – I used Stylecraft Belissima for the video – a lovely premium acrylic

The other hexagons – Stylecraft Special DK – which now comes in 98 colours – but more on those for my next post!

What you need to know (scroll down for the video):

You start on a smaller row/ column – remember I said they tesselate – start with a “small row”.

You’ll work 4 sides of the first hexagon before joining the second and work 3 sides on this one, before starting the next row.

You join the right hand edges of the second row / column, then come back and complete the other sides.

Have I completely confused you? Luckily I thought I might – so scroll down to a handy video for you – which should explain it a lot better than I have above!

The diagram below should help, if not – look at my YouTube video linked below (and hit subscribe while you are there please).
