Daffodil Hexagon Photo Tutorial

Its Saint David’s Day today!!!

I thought I would revisit my Daffodil pattern from ages ago and post a Daffodil Hexagon photo tutorial for you.

 Here’s how the finished Daffodil hexagon will look. Take a sneak peak at the material list and grab your hook at the ready!

Materials:

You will need scraps of:
  • Dark Yellow yarn
  • Pale Yellow yarn
  • Green yarn

I have used Cascade 220 which is a worsted weight (aran UK) yarn and a 5mm hook.  Use whatever yarn and hook you fancy or have to hand.

Crochet Hook:
H size / 5mm, or whatever size suits the yarn you are using.
 
Measurement:
My completed hexagon measures 5 inches (13 cm) from edge to edge.
 

Daffodil Hexagon Photo Tutorial – Lets get started!

Start with Dark Yellow and make a Magic Ring.  Make a loop with the yarn end to the left and the working yarn to the right.

Insert your hook from front to back through the ring and draw a loop through.  Chain 1.

Now work 6 single crochet (double crochet UK) into the ring working over the yarn tail.

When you have completed 6 stitches in the ring pull tightly on the yarn tail to close the ring.

Join by working a slip stitch through the front loop only of the first stitch you made.

Chain 3.  This chain 3 counts as a double crochet stitch (treble crochet stitch UK).

Work 1 double crochet through the front loop of each stitch.  As you work, the stitches will start to stick up forming the trumpet of the daffodil.

When you have worked 6 stitches, ignore the next slip stitch and join with a slip stitch to the top of the beginning chain 3 at the start of the round.

Chain 1 and work a single crochet (double crochet UK) in the same place.

 Repeat the last two steps working a single crochet (double crochet UK), chain 1 in each stitch.  A total of 6 stitches and 6 chain stitches.  Join with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the round and end the yarn.

Now, we are going to work in the back loops of the first round.  Turn your ‘trumpet’ upside down and you will see the bumps we need to work into.

The Outer Petals

Turn the trumpet back the right way and with Pale Yellow, insert your hook through both back loops.  Pull up a loop.

Repeat the last step until you have 6 groups of 3 double crochet (treble crochet), don’t work the last chain 2.
 
To join, work a half double crochet (half treble crochet UK) into the top of the first stitch of the round.

Chain 3.

Now we are going to work a cluster stitch in the next 3 stitches.  Start by beginning a double crochet (treble crochet UK) in the next stitch.

Yarn over hook and draw through two loops.  We are only working off two loops, leaving one loop of the stitch still on the hook.

Repeat the last two steps in the next two stitches.  You will have 4 loops on your hook.

Sew in those nasty loose ends, make sure you thoroughly sew the end of the Magic Ring in otherwise it’ll loosen up as time goes by.
