I'm Ava Lynne Green. Today's project is a hexagon Christmas stocking. This stocking uses worsted weight yarn and an H crochet hook. It takes approximately 35 yards of the color for the center, 50 yards for the next round and 100 yards for the final round. And a 100 yards for this last round and then, the yarn to put it together. That's for the entire stocking, not just one hexagon. Now, the basic hexagon is done by chaining three and doing eleven more double crochets in the first chain. Then, the last stitch is joined to the top of this stitch and with a slip stitch. And there's the center circle. Start out in any stitch, join your yarn in any stitch and chain two, chain three. Double crochet in the same stitch, go over to the next stitch and chain one. Then you do a double chain two and another double in the same stitch. And what that does is make your corner. Now, on this one, I've already got the second round done. And you can see that I now have six corners, one, two, three, four, five and six. With my, which sets up my hexagon. The next row, I add, cut the yarn for the second round and add the new yarn for my third round i any of the chain two spaces. And I work the third round, keeping my corners lined up with my corners that I formed in the second round. So, my hexagon, it's just getting bigger. Then, the last round still keeps the corner set up, but it's single crochets instead of doubles. Once you get 17 of these done, you're ready to put them together. So, I'm going to hold the two wrong sides together and attach my yarn in any of the corners. And then, I'm going to slip stitch them together by going through the outside loop of each stitch, across one one side. When you get to the other corner, you just cut your yarn, fasten it off. And go on and pick another hexagon to add to your piece that you put together here. Now, assembly is easier to follow if you put your hexagons together, like we started doing here, putting them together in strips. This folds under, this one folds and these will meet on the back, if they're all folded correctly. Everything will meet on the back. And then, this folds up this way. And again, everything meets and this one becomes the toe and folds in like that. Once it's all put together, it looks like this and then, I crochet three rows of single crochet around the top and made a hanging loop. And you can find the detailed instructions for this at Terri's Yarns & Crafts.
