How to Crochet A Hexagon

DSC_8464

Crocheting hexagons is a challenge as well as a huge boost to your ego…..becos though the making of individual hexagonal motifs is easy….placing them in a legible order to make something that you would want to use and enjoy is intellectually stimulating……There are so many hexagon patterns…I have chosen a very simple pattern here…

I just loved hooking up this runner ..initially intended for my dressing table….but in my enthusiasm I made too many motifs and then didn’t have the heart to not use them…so this one is going on the side board….:-)) Here’s how I hooked this delicate little baby… Yarn used….DMC #20 one 50 gram ball…colour Ecru. Varigated Yarn ……in 17 shades…..

Then came hooking the last row of the motif along with joining it to the next motif…..

After I finished joining the motifs…..it seemed as though something was missing so I used opaque off white tear drop beads, colourless seed beads and pearl beads….in the border…I crocheted this on with a mixture of slip stitch and scs…along the border making this the last row……since the motifs and flowers were already done…I  sewed in the pearl beads and the colourless seed beads to accentuate the centre of the flower .

Blocking: After laying the runner on two foam boards…     I spray starched 5 motifs at al time and stretched them out and blocked them with pins…making doubly sure that the motif retained it’s shape and that the beads stood out. After I finished …
