Hexagon Motif Pattern - Scrapbuster Hexagon Afghan

This Hexagon Motif Pattern is perfect for using up teeny tiny scraps - and the best part is that you do not have to add a main colour if you are planning on making a scrapbuster afghan.

Start; Round 1; Round 2 - follow the instructions for HEXAGON CROCHET MOTIF # 2

Round 3:  
Using Colour C insert hook as shown into space between 2dc
3ch, 2dc;   *3dc into sp between 2dc* 11 times
ss to join (12 3dc clusters)

Once you start joining the hexagons you will be able to see a "line" try to keep to this line as you add on - it just makes it easier to keep form while you are making the blanket bigger.

I finished mine off with two rows of 2dc clusters following the shape of the hexagon
