Half Hexagon - in collaboration with Yarnish.


Back in December I was involved in an advent crochet a long that was hosted by Yarnish. The patterns remain on the Yarnish blog: 'What's on the blog' You can also find the Ravelry entry here, which includes projects added by users. The photo above shows the table runner in progress.

I have been since asked about a half hexagon and here it is!
The pattern is joined using the 'join as you go' method, and this takes place in row 4, in the open picots.

Yarn: Scheepjes Catona, 100% cotton, 10g/25m
Hook: 4 mm
Gauge: Motif width 10 cm, and half hexagon 5cm height
1 x 10g ball will yield 4 half hexagons or 2 full motifs.

Written is US terms and works in rows.


Abbreviations used:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
dc2tog – double crochet two stitches together (see below)
dc3tog - double crochet three stitches together (see below)
BL/O – Back loop/ only
OP - open picot (see below)
sl st – slip stitch
st/s – stitch/es
sp – space
YO – yarn over (hook)


Special Stitches:
dc2tog – Starting cluster *YO, insert hook into st/sp, YO pull up loop, YO and draw through 2 loops, rep from *, 3 loops remain on hook, YO and draw through 3 remaining loops on hook.

dc3tog – Cluster. *YO, insert hook into st/sp, YO pull up loop, YO and draw through 2 loops, rep from * twice, 4 loops remain on hook, YO and draw through 4 remaining loops on hook.

open picot - (sc, ch 2, sc) into same st or sp, except when joining; work as (sc, ch 1, sl st to other motif, sc) See this blog post at Yarnish for more information on joining motifs. 

Pattern:
Start with a Magic Ring.

Round 1: Ch 2, dc2tog, (ch 2, dc3tog) 3 times, turn.(4 clusters).

Round 2:  Ch 3 (counts as dc), 5 dc next  sp, (ch 1, 5 dc in next sp) twice, dc in top of cluster, turn. (17 dc, 2 ch)

Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc) BLO dc in same st, BLO dc in next 4 sts, 2 BLO dc in next st, ch 1,     2 BLO dc in next dc, BLO dc in next 3 sts, 2 BLO dc in next dc, 2 BLO dc in next st, ch 1, 2 BLO dc in next dc, BLO dc in next 4 sts, 2 BLO dc in next dc turn. (23 BLO dc, 2 ch)

Round 4: Ch 1, OP in 1st st, *sc into next 3 dc, OP in next st, sc into next 3 dc, OP in next sp, rep from * twice more, with the final OP in the final st.

Fasten off. For best results I recommend blocking.
