Now, as you can probably tell, I am not the best at tutorials but will do my best for you all! I promise you this is super EaSy, and great for a beginner.
I used a 4mm hook and some double knit wool. I have used UK terminology, a UK treble is a US double crochet.
Row 1 : Chain 4 and slip stitch into a ring. 3 chain (counts as first treble) and work 11 trebles into the ring. join at the top of the 3 chain with a slip stitch. Fasten off.
Row 2 : With a new colour join in wool between 2 trebles and make 3 chain and 2 trebles in same space, 1 chain, miss 2 trebles and make 3 trebles in next space. Repeat 1 chain miss 2 trebles and make 3 trebles in next space all the way round and slip stitch into to of first 3 chain. You should have 6 groups of trebles. Fasten off.
Row 3 : With another new colour, begin in a a chain space and make 3 chain, 2 trebles, 2 chain, 3 trebles in same space, *then 1 chain and make 3 trebles, 2 chain, 3 trebles in next space , repeat from * all the way round and join to top of first 3 chain with a slip stitch and fasten off .
Hey Presto! one Mini Hex!! These are sooooo quick to do
and you can join them together as you go - here is a peek at my current WIP
as you can see I have been making seven of them into flowers - I am hoping to make them look like a traditional patchwork.
Hope they turn out ok - would love to see pictures if anyone makes these!
Just have to show you the Amyrillis - its a giant beauty and worth the wait!!
Must dash now, blow the washing and ironing and all the other things I should be doing - I am taking a day out and heading to London to the Country Living Fair (strange, I live in the country and have to go to central London for the Country Living Fair!!!) such excitement!!!!
