When deciding on how to join my African flowers that have 6 corners I couldn’t find a way that I liked for what I was doing.
I’m making a pillow/cushion for my goddaughter and I wanted it flat in the join not bulgy and I wasn’t able to get the result I was after when I crocheted the hexagons together so I made up a way.
The amazing Crocheted By Tess helped me come up with the oh so catchy name “The Geojoin” due to the symmetrical look and the geometrical pattern of the triangles that appear when joining the corners of the hexagons together.
When you come to a corner you pick up the final back loop and go in the corner of the top hexagons shown below
Next go go in the corner of the hexagons you picked up the last back loop from and up through the third and final hexagon corner as shown below
Now you go down through the top hexagon corner and up through the hexagon corner (the one where you picked up the last back loop)
Finally you go down through the third joining hexagon. Here you also go in through the back loop of this hexagon so you can continue down the side and join the sides together
Below is a clearer picture of where to go up in the back loop
This should now have formed your triangle join for the corner
To join the sides this is how you go through the back loops
When you reach the end of the side it should look like this:
You now turn, instead of joining the next hexagon and complete the side.
It should look like this:
When you get back to your triangle join go up in the back loop of the top hexagon
And now you can continue to join this side:
I hope this was helpful and if there are any questions let me know!!
