Instructions for Hexagons:

Note: Make as many as needed for desired length.  Each round is crocheted in a different color. When working with multi-colored projects, it is helpful to weave the ends as you go. I mixed up the colors for the first four rounds, then worked the last round in charcoal for each one of the hexagons.

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. 

Round 5: 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 to make the next side.  In the next space, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1 to make the next corner.  Continue in this manner, working corner, side, side, corner, side, side, etc. Join to close round with a sl st. 

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Note: To add rounds to the hexagon, simply repeat round 5, adding an additional side (in between the corners) for each round worked.


Finishing & Assembly:

Line up hexagons with their flat sides touching, with right side of each hexagon facing upward to get the order you like best (I tried to make sure the ones that looked very similar to one another color-wise were spread out).  Starting with the first two hexagons, sandwich them together with the right side of hexagons facing inward.  Tie yarn into upper left corner space of both hexagons and chain 1.  Turn and work a slip stitch seam in each stitch across until the next corer space is reached.  Work a sl st in the corner space and fasten off.  Weave in any ends and repeat with the remaining hexagons until all are joined to form the scarf.
