Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Mikey must have seen me coming because by listing the EXACT colors for each option, I dont have to make any agonizing decisions under the glare of florescent lights! Each hexagonal motif is huge (14 inches) and are worked exactly the same, so this is another very portable project. The diagrams for the whole and half motifs are nice, but enlarging them makes them fuzzy and not very readable. Head over to the Crochet Crowd site for the instructional video for this project.

Hi babytotz. Row 10 kind of stands up after being in only the front loops. It forms a ridge after doing rounds 11 and 12, then you use the back loops in Row 13. Hope this helps, but if not I will try to post a picture when I get there again . I'm on Round 4 of my 3rd motif right now

I'm already stuck on row 10. Just can't visualize it. Any help?

Here is a picture of Row 10 complete

guess I really meant that row 13 with making a ridge has thrown me for a loop. Can't picture how they go together. Appreciate the help

great. I'll wait for a picture of row 13 being worked

Round 15 is missing from the motif pattern. I'm pretty sure you're supposed to use F and sc around, placing 5 sc in each ch-2 space. I'm basing this on the diagram and instructions in Round 16

Hi cwats, Thanks for catching that omission! So sorry about that - this pattern has been updated to include the missing round. Thank you! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Fun pattern so far,but I am lost on step 16 of the full motif pattern where am I finding the SC stiches

Hi Sageandlilysmom, For your question, I would recommend you post it to AllFreeCrochet's Facebook wall (facebook.com/allfreecrochet) - we have a community of friendly crocheters who frequent the page, and they can surely offer some advice! Thanks, Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

These are so incredibly colorful! They are stunning and would make a great gift for anyone.
