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.

until you reach the next shell where you will make your final connection


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.



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!
