Pattern:
With yarn colour A, begin by making a magic circle. Alternately, you may chain 3 and SS into the first chain to make a circle.

Round 1:
Continuing with yarn colour A, CH 2.
Make 1 dc into your circle.
CH 2, 2 DC. Repeat 4 more times.
CH 2 SS into the top of your beginning CH 2.
Fasten off.

(12 DC stitches, 6 CH 2 spaces)

Round 2:
Join yarn colour B into any CH space and CH 2.
Place 1 DC into the next 2 stitches. In the next CH space, make 1 DC, CH 2, 1 DC
Repeat from * to * 4 more times.
Place 1 DC into the next 2 stitches.
Make 1 DC into the next CH space. CH 2.
SS into the top of your beginning CH 2.
Fasten off.

(24 DC stitches, 6 CH 2 spaces)

Round 3:
Join yarn colour C into any CH space and CH 2.
Place 1 DC into the next 4 stitches. In the next CH space, make 1 DC, CH 2, 1 DC
Repeat from * to * 4 more times.
Make 1 DC into the next 4 stitches.
Make 1 DC into the next CH space. CH 2.
SS into the top of your beginning CH 2.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Stitch your hexies together using your preferred joining method. I like to use the “invisible seam” method.

If you don’t want a border, your hexie centerpiece is complete.

If you would like to add a border:
Join yarn colour B into any stitch and CH 1.
Follow along your edges and make a SC into each stitch.
– When you reach the points/tips, place 1 SC, CH 2, 1 SC into the chain space.
– When you reach the dips, create 1 SC in into the first CH space, 1 SC into the seam and 1 SC into the next chain space.
Continue with your SC stitches along the edges. When you get back
to the beginning, SS into your beginning Ch 1.

Fasten off and weave in all your ends.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern! If you are looking for more fun and simple crochet projects, please check out the “Free Patterns” section of my blog. You can also find me on Ravelry for free .pdf versions for easy printing.
