So, remember my absolute break through with granny squares and how to join them with only 2 ends to sew in……..
And then my complete fascination with hexagons……
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!).
If you want to save this for later – please Pin the photo below (Not only does it look pretty, but it tells people exactly what this post is about so they can find it easier…. and it’s a good size to show up on Pinterest boards)
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).
Here’s the video – which should explain the whole thing!
