Happy Wednesday readers!
I have finished all my full hexagons for my snowflake afghan so that’s a pretty big win! I also came up with a pattern for a half snowflake and thought I could share with you.
Slip stitch – sl st
Chain – ch
Single stitch – sc
Double stitch – dc
Popcorn stitch – 4 dc into the next ch space, remove hook from working loop and insert hook through top of first of the 4 dc, pick up working loop and draw loop through the top of first sc.
Ch 6 – join with a sl st to the first chain to form a ring
Ch 1 – sc 8 in the ring – turn
Ch 5 – *dc in next sc, ch 2* repeat 6 more times – turn
Sl st into the 2 ch gap – popcorn stitch in the next 2 ch gap (ch 3 as the first dc), ch3 – *popcorn stitch, ch 3* repeat 5 more times – turn
Ch 4 – *4 dc in the next 3ch gap, ch1* repeat 5 times – dc in the top of the last popcorn stitch – turn
Sl st into the 1 ch gap – ch 3, 2 dc into the same 1 ch gap – *ch 2, dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 1, dc into the same 1 ch gap, ch 2, 3 dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 3, 3dc in the same 1 ch gap* repeat once – ch 2, dc in the next 1 ch gap, ch 1, dc into the same 1 ch gap, ch 2, 3 dc in the next 1 ch gap
The last round sounds a bit complicated but it’s what makes the shape of the hexagon and you do get the hang of it pretty fast 🙂
Hopefully I have all my blocks joined next week 🙂
