Attic 24's Hexagon Tutorial
Round 1: Chain 3; Join with Slipstitch; Chain 3; DC (US) eleven times in ring; join ring with slipstitch.
Round 2: Chain 2, DC (US) into same stitch *DC (US) Bobbles Twice, Chain 1* eleven times through stitches of previous round. Join round with slipstitch.
Round 3: Chain 3; DC twice into same space, *DC (US) three times, CHain 1* eleven times through spaces of previous round. Join round with slipstitch.
Round 4: PUll loop through space and chain three; *slip stitch into next space and chain 3* into spaces of previous round. Join round with slipstitch.
Round 5: You are using the same colour as the last round, and you will be working the stitches under the chain-3 loops you created. So to begin, make a slip stitch under the nearest chain-3 loop.
Chain 3 (counts as one dc/tr), then US dc / UK tr twice. Chain 2 (this is the corner spacing), then in the SAME chain-3 loop, US dc / UK tr three times. This is your first corner, it should look like a double cluster of 6 dc/tr's with a pointy corner bit in the middle.
Into the next chain-3 loop, work US dc / UK tr three times. This is a single cluster and makes a straight side.
Into the next chain-3 loop, work US dc / UK Tr three times, chain 2, then US dc / UK Tr three times. This is your second corner.
Continue working your way round making your clusters of 3 dc's /tr's, alternating between making a double cluster corner group (with chain 2 spacing) and a straight side single cluster. You should be ending the round on a straight-side group of three dc's/Tr's. Join the round with a slip stitch and fasten off.
