Joining the hexagon to the pentagon

Join the first hex on side 3 and 4 to the pentagon
the next hex join side 2,3 and 4. and subsequent hex's, then the last hex join on sides 2, 3, 4 and 5 

 Start at the top marked the 2dc [2tr], ch2, 2dc [2tr],  in that first point
 do the next 20sts, 
 in the 2nd corner do 2dc [2tr], ch1, sl st into the matching hexagon ch2 corner
 then do the next dc in the same corner
 then sl st into the first st on the hex you are joining it too
 continue to do all the dc, in each st with a sl st into the matching hex 16dc [16tr] on each of the lower 4 sides

 then when you get to the next corner do the dc [tr], ch1 

 then sl st into the join on the pentagon and hex
 and continue to do the dc, on the hex and the sl st into each st on the pentagon side to the next corner 16sts in all

 here for balance i know you all like balance do the dc, then sl st into the join on the pentagons and leave the ch1 st out might make for a better centre bottom point 
 then continue with the dc [tr], into the same sp, sl st into the first st of the pentagon
 continue to complete this row of 16sts, including the 2 in each corner
continue to the next corner sl st into the join between the pentagons not the 
ch sp

for each of the corners work the sl st into the joins between pentagon and pentagon or pentagon and hex 
As above sl st into the join not into the ch sp of each corner use the join already made and sl st into that...centrally
i think the pattern is telling you to do sl st into both of the ch sps? should say into the join 
I will try to sort out the mini video but for now my phone flatly refuses to take a picture let alone a video


  1. Thanks for that Sue, mines not quite that in the corners but I think it works. Will copy yours from now x

    1. Hi Laraine, hope it helped for now xx

    2. Just finally gotten round to doing the join following your pictures and words, I have to say it was so easy to follow. Sue you are a true and awesome star xx

    3. HI Laraine, fabulous, very disappointed my iPhone refuses to work for now but getting it sorted asap so Suz Tips and mini videos will be back. Glad the multi stills worked for many though. Thanks here to help if i can xx
