Hexagonal Rosy Motif By Megan Mills This Hexagonal Rosy Motif is the perfect basis for a floral afghan. Attach these hexagons together to create a gortgeous and elegant crocheted afghan. This floral afghan is sure to become a family heirloom! Roses have long been a symbol of love, so this Rosy Hexagonal Motif granny square would make a great Valentine’s Day gift, or Anniversary present for that special someone. Cuddle up on the couch with this rose-inspired pattern for years and years to come! Each hexagon measures approximately 8 inches across.

loops on hook, yoh and draw through 3 loops on hook). 4-dc: 4 dc bobbles (1 dc, 3 dc into bottom of this dc, remove hook from loop and reinsert in first dc, draw loop through, ch 1 tightly). A Note on Joining-Motifs-As-You-Go On the final round decide where you need to join to another motif. Work the stitch you’ll want to join. Drop the loop from the hook. Pull it up through the top of the stitch you want to join it to on the other motif. Work the next stitch on your current motif. Repeat. You will get a very tidy attractive seam that is as flexible as the rest of your work. You can vary this if you like by pulling the loop down through the top of the stitch you want to join to. This produces the reverse effect and is very nice in its own right. (Aha! If you just thought that this must mean both sides of your work will look good using this method you are right). INSTRUCTIONS: Pattern Start with a ring made by wrapping the tail of the yarn clockwise around your finger or thumb three times. You will start the first of your chain by drawing the working end up through the ring to form the first loop. At the end of your first round you can tighten the ring to the perfect size.

Your motif may vary in size but don’t worry about that. Aim for a motif that lies flat and looks pretty and then just make as many as you need to achieve the desired size for your project.
