JOIN AS YOU GO
Use a sl st at the end of each st, to join to the previous hex, for this design do no join the ch 3 sts only the dc sts should be joined together, this leave a tiny triangle in the centre of each join

  7. Sue, I love this pattern..very easy and beautiful!! I'm going to make the hex. larger and turn it into a pillow cover for a square pillow. Do you have a pattern that I could use to turn it into a square for the last several rows? Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent with all of us!! xoxo
