Instructions:

Note: Each round is crocheted in a different color. When working with multi-colored projects, it is helpful to weave the ends as you go.

Ch 4, join with a sl st in the furthest ch from hook to form ring.

Round 1: ch 3, then work 2 dc, then a sl st into the center of the ring. Work *(3 dc, sl st) five times for a total of 6 petals. Join with a sl st to close round.

Round 2: Tie on new color onto the back loops at the top of one of the petals. Insert your hook (same place at the top of petal) as if to work a back post stitch and ch 3 (working it this way will make the chain look more consistent with the other stitches). Ch 1, then in the next space (in between petals) work a tr into the center of the ring. Ch 1, then work a bpdc into the center most dc of the next petal. Continue in this manner around the circle, working a tr, ch 1 into the center of the ring (in between petals), then a bpdc, ch 1 in center dc of each petal. Join to close round with a sl st.

Round 3: Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work a dc, ch 1. Work 2 dc, ch 1 in each space around. Join to close round with a sl st.

Round 4: Tie on a new color into any space and ch 3. In the same space, work 2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1 (this will create first corner of the hexagon). In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1 (this will create the first side of the hexagon. In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1 to make the next corner. In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1 to work the next side. Continue in this manner, working corner, side, corner, side, etc until you have a total of 6 corners and 6 sides. Join to close round with a sl st. 

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Note: To add rounds to the hexagon, simply repeat round 4, adding an additional side (in between the corners) for each round worked.
