https://www.yarnish.com.au/products/scheepjes-catona

Hook size: 4 mm

Gauge: Motif will measure 10 cm at widest point. 1 x 10 g ball will yield 2 motifs.

Today we will be joining more motifs, either sides or points, as decided yesterday.


Please note, that you are now joining to your own plan – based on colours and final shape, so your joins may vary – depending if you are continuing in rows or radiating out.

If you are joining points, you will only need to a make one join at each point that touches. This join will be the same as day 2; and will remain the same as you join each new hexagon.
If you are joining sides, you will make three joins in each side that touch. Depending on your layout, we will start to see variations in how you join, so I am showing you how to join 3 sides.

Please refer back to Day 1 for the pattern rounds 1 -3.

Round 4:
Points Join: Ch 1, sc 1 in same st, sc in next 2 sts, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next dc, sc into next 3 dc, (sc, ch 1, insert hook into ch-2 sp of other motif, sl st, sc) in next ch-1 sp; continue around motif as pattern, replacing ch 2 with (ch 1, hook through other motif ch sp sl st), where the points touch. sl st to 1st sc. (60 sc, ch/sl st count will vary depending on amount of joins)
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Sides Join: Ch 1, sc 1 in same st, sc in next 2 sts, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next dc, sc into next 3 dc, (sc, ch 1, insert hook into ch-2 sp of other motif, sl st, sc) in next ch-1 sp, sc into next 3 dc, (sc, ch 1, insert hook into ch-2 sp of other motif, sl st, sc) in next dc, sc into next 3 dc, (sc, ch 1, insert hook into ch-2 sp of other motif, sl st, sc) in next ch sp; continue around motif as pattern, replacing ch 2 with (ch 1, hook through other motif ch sp, sl st), where the two edges and centre chains touch. sl st to 1st sc. (60 sc ch/sl st count will vary depending on amount of joins)
Fasten off and weave in ends.

You will have enough yarn to make a second motif, You can begin making and joining motifs from your reserved yarn from days 1-3.

Blocking:
Each motif will be able to be blocked after joining. Just as Day 1 this can be done by dampening each piece (spray with water or gentle soak) and pinning the 6 corners out on a piece of foam/blocking mat or folded towel. Leave to dry.
Another method is to pin out and steam with an iron by hovering over it. It will be blocked in a matter of seconds.

END OF DAY 3
You will have 4 - 8 joined motifs.
