Nameless hexagon has a name! (PATTERN)

Hello!
As the nameless hexagon was the most popular, it has to be the first pattern I share!!
First it has to be named. I think spring time hexagon sounds okay.

I have used UK terms throughout.
2tr tog = 2dc tog (us)
tr = dc (us)
dtr = tr (us)
yo = yarn over
sp = space
Vst = 1tr,1ch,1tr in same space.
2tr tog =  yo, insert hook in next stitch,  yo, pull through two loops, yo pull through 2 loops, yo, pull through all loops on hook.
dtr = yo twice, pull through loop, 4 loops on hook,yo, pull through 2 loops, 3 loops on hook, yo, pull through 2 loops, 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through last 2 loops.
I hope those instructions are clear!

Ch 4 join to form a ring.
Round 1
(working into ring) 
ch2, 1tr.
(2tr tog) 11 times. Join to top of beginning 2 chain.
It's a bit fiddly to get them to all in, but they will fit.
Fasten off neatly.

Round 2
Working out of the tiny space between groups of stitches.

Join new yarn.
ch4 ( counts as 1tr and 1ch sp) 1tr in same sp.
1 Vst in each tiny sp all the way around.

Join to 3rd of beginning 4ch.
Fasten off neatly. ( 12 Vsts)

Round 3.
Working out of the Vs.
Join new yarn.


ch 4 ( counts as 1tr and 1ch sp) 1tr in same sp, ch1.
(1Vst, ch1) in each V all the way around.

Join to 3rd of beginning 4ch.
Fasten off neatly.
12 Vsts separated by 1ch sp.

Round 4.
Working out of the Vsts
Join new yarn.
Ch4 (counts as 1tr and 1 ch sp) 1tr, 1ch, 1Vst 1ch. in same sp.


1 Vst in next V, ch1
(1 Vst, 1ch, 1Vst, ch1) in next V.
1 Vst in next V, ch1
(1Vst, 1ch, 1Vst,1ch) in next V.
1Vst in next V ch1
(1Vst, 1ch,1Vst, 1ch) in next V.

1 Vst in next V, ch1
(1Vst, 1ch, 1Vst, 1ch) in next V
1 Vst in next V , ch1
(1 Vst, 1ch, 1vst, 1ch) in next V.
1 Vst in next V, ch1.
Join to 3rd of beginning 4 ch.
Fasten off neatly.


Round 5
Join new yarn to a corner sp.
Ch 3 ( counts as 1tr) 1dtr, 1tr in same sp.
2tr in next  Vst.
2tr in next 1ch sp.
1tr in next Vst.
2tr in next 1ch sp.

*2tr in  next  V st.
(1tr, 1dtr, 1tr) in next corner sp.
2tr in next Vst.
2tr in next 1ch sp.
1tr in next Vst.
2tr in next 1 ch sp.
2tr in next Vst.*
Rep from *to* 4 more times.
Join to top of beginning 3ch.
Fasten off neatly.


Be careful with your stitches, it's all to easy to miss count.

Oops!


I hope the pattern works, it took an age to sort out! If there are any problems/mistakes, let me know and I'll sort it out.
I'm going to have a cup of coffee.

Till next time.

  12. hello there,
    your hexagon is looking great. I ended up here through flickr. Well, I was little confused with 'us' and 'uk' crochet terms.Thanks to you, you described them also. But, in dc2tog, after pulling through first 2 loops, yo, then you have insert into next stitch,then yo. You missed out inserting into next stitch. So, I got confused. Anyway, I got it now. ! !
