Tutorial Links & Abbreviations:




Chain 4 and join into a ring with a slip stitch.

Round 1: 
Chain 4 (counts as a dc), then work (a dc into center of ring, chain 1) 11 times.  Join to close with a slip stitch.

Note: If you want to make round 2 in the same color, simply slip stitch until you reach a ch 1 space and keep going.  If you want to switch colors...cut yarn and join the new yarn at one of the ch 1 spaces and tie securely.

Round 2: 
Chain 4 and work a dc in the same space.  Chain 1, then work two double crochet in the next (chain 1) space.  Keep doing this all the way around, working 2 dc in each space, then a chain 1.  Join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 3: 
Chain 4, then work 2 dc in the same space, then chain 1.  In the next space, work three dc, then chain 1.  Keep doing this all the way around the circle...3 dc, then a chain 1 in each space.  Join with a slip stitch to close.

Round 4: 
(circle becomes hexagon in this round): Chain 4, and in the first space work 2 dc, chain 1, then 3 dc all in the same space.  This creates the first hexagon corner.  In the next space, to work the hexagon side, chain 1, then work 3 dc in next space. Keep going in this manner, working a corner of two "clusters" and a side of 1 cluster (each cluster being separated by a chain 1).  Join with a slip stitch to close.

Note: just be sure there is a ch 1 in between each grouping of 3 dc clusters as you work each round. That is what gives it the pretty spaces in between each cluster and keeps it nice and flat.

Hanging Loop (optional):
Slip stitch over to the next corner space (ch 1 space) then chain 10.  Work a slip stitch in the same space and fasten off.

Finishing:
Weave in any ends and you're finished!


Happy crocheting lovelies!
