Hexagons… generic, not Norah’s
This first one is the one I prefer & would probably knit
Figure out your CO by your gauge – your sts/in multiplied by 18 (for instance 5 sts/in x 18=90 CO)
Join, knit one round
Mark 6 evenly spaced points
Knit the next round, decreasing 2 stitches at each marked point. You can “design” some here by picking your fav decrease combo.
I did… CO 90, marked every 15th stitch with a removable marker, k to within one stitch of this st. and did a centered double decrease – slip 2 stitches knitwise together, k1, pass slipped stitches over)
Continue to decrease until you hit the center (6 sts remain) – be sure to put 2 even rounds in between decrease rounds to keep it flat.
From the center-out
CO 6 sts, join, knit one round
*K1, yo, repeat from * around
K 2 rounds *k1, (k1, yo, k1) in the same st. repeat from * around
K2, *yo, k1, yo, k3, repeat from * around ending with a k1 instead of a k3
K3, *yo, k1, yo, k5, repeat from * around ending with a k2 instead of a k5
- Repeat yarn over round, adding 2 stitches in between the (yo, k1, yo) group each round (for instance the next round would have *yo, k1, yo, k7 repeat * around…
- You can “design” some by replacing the YOs with your favorite increase method
- I marked the k1 “point” stitch with a removable marker in the first round or two so I wouldn’t mess up
- Knit 2 rounds in between each increase round to keep the hexagon flat
- Stop when you have your sts/in x 3 in between the points.
Something to note – my chunky inside-out hexagon with the yarnovers didn’t block pointy. I think it was the chunky yarn on size 8DPNs :-D
