I've just written up a new pattern! The Flower in the Center Pentagon can be used for all sorts of things. Afghans, purses, placemats, the list goes on and on!
I was searching around the internet for a neat hexagon pattern and I just couldn't find one that I really liked. So I came up with one! I hope you enjoy!
DC2TOG--YO, go into the stitch specified and draw up a loop (three loops on hook), YO and draw through two loops, YO, go into the stitch specified and draw up a loop (four loops on hook), YO, and draw through two loops, YO and draw through three loops
Start out with a chain of seven joined w/ a slip stitch to make a ring.
Chain two, DC into ring, chain one. *DC2TOG, chain 1* repeat fron *to* eight more times for a grand total of 10 chain spaces. Slip Stitch to beginning stitch.
Slip stitch to next chain space, chain two, do seven double crochets in same chain space, single crochet in next chain space. *In next chain space do 7 double crochets, in next chain space do one single crochet* repeat from *to* around. Slip stitch in top of first double crochet.
Fasten off, join in new color in the third stitch of one of your seven double crochet shells.
Chain 1, do one single crochet in same space. Do three single crochets in next stitch, do one single crochet in next stitch. Chain 4, skip 5 stitches and single crochet in third stitch stitch of your double crochet shell. Repeat this process around (One single crochet in third stitch of double crochet shell, three sc in next stitch one sc in next stitch, chain 4, skip five stitches).
Slip stitch to beginning SC.
Chain two. DC in same stitch, DC in next stitch, DC chain 1 DC in next SC, single crochet in next single crochet. Six DC in chain space. *DC in next two stitches, DC chain 1 DC in next stitch, DC in next two stitches. Six DC in chain space* repeat from *to* around. Fasten off.
The next two rows are so easy, I won't write them out in crochet speak. All you do is double crochet down the sides and put *DC, chain 1, DC* in the chain spaces. Then join to your first stitch.
The last row is super-dee-duper easy. Just single crochet down the sides and put three single crochets in the corners. Yep, that's easy. Fasten off.
Weave in ends.
And you're done!
Be sure to let me know if there is anything you're confused with!
I'll be adding this pattern to Ravelry soon so you can post your projects!
