To start:
Ch 4, sl st to make a ring

 

 

 

Round 1

Repeat for whole round, sl st into beginning stitch to join. (36 sts)

 

 

 

 

I have made a beginner tutorial for the Double Crochet Crossover Stitch if you need it

 

Round 3
ch 2 , this counts as first dc, dc 4 more into the same stitch. * Skip 2 sts, sc into next stitch, skip 2 sts and dc 5 into next stitch * Repeat for rest of round. Sl st to top of ch 2 to end round, leaving a bit of tail cut yarn. ( 6 shells)

 

 

 

If you need more help with the shell stitch, I have a helpful beginner tutorial

 

 

 

To connect the pieces you will have to stop short of 6 shells to do your connections as we go. This is how.

To make your first connection you want to stop on your 5th shell and do only 2 full dc’s, on your third dc, go through the first two loops as usual, but before you finish the dc slip your hook through the point of one of the point of the previous hexagon that you did

then YO and pull through all loops

Then finish the last two dc’s of your shell as normal

Continue to make your hexagon until you reach your next point and repeat connection method.
Now you have two connected at two points

Now finish your shell again and rest of round, sl st into beginning ch and leave a tail to be worked in later, cut your yarn.

To make a center connection, you do the same as above, only you start your connect on your 4th shell instead of your 5th.

And the second connection you make will be in the center stitch where you made your connects with the last two hexagons.

Continue to connect your hexagons this way until you have 3 rows connected a 9 hexagon row, 10 hexagon row, and a 9 hexagon row like shown below.

When your ready to start connecting your fourth row, it’s easiest to connect the hexagons as shown in the pictures below

Then continue as usual for a total of 9 rows or until it’s as big as you like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAKING THE RUFFLE BORDER

is very easy, all you do is start in one corner of the afghan and single crochet all the way around. Sl st into beginning stitch. To make the ruffles you do the same has in the hexagon for round 3, doing your double crochet crossover stitch all the way around. Then your done!
