Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon
Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon was inspired by the Crochet Flower Bud Granny Octagon. I figured I would attempt to make a hexagon and it was quite simple.
The Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon would be a great stash buster for a afghan of any size or you can use them any way you'd like. Each hexagon works up to be 4.5 inches.
I have used my Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon's to make a granny bag. I made a total of 10 hexagons. I'm thinking about making one more for an inside pocket after I line the bag.

Caron Simply Soft Yarn in white, green & rose. For the Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon Bag I used 3 oz balls of each colour.
I unraveled my worked up pieces to figure out what the yardage would be. For the octagon white: 18 yards, octagon green: 3.5 yards, octagon flower: 7 yards, Square: 5 yards, Triangle: 3.5 yards. (Yardage listed is to work up 1 piece only.)

- Shell - 5 dc in same st.
- Popcorn Stitch (Pop-St) - 5 dc in same st, on last stitch draw up a 1" loop, remove hook, insert hook beside first dc in behind the 5 dc, attach loop onto hook and draw up a loop.
- 7 sc = 2"

Crochet Flower Bud Granny Hexagon Bag..
To make the bag I worked up 10 hexagons and laid them out as shown below.
I worked an sc edging around the hexagons, working an sc in the corner stitch (corner stitch is the ch1 that was worked in the last round of work when hexagons were made.) I worked an ch1 then attached the next hexagon in the same corner stitch, working the ch1 in your corners makes it easier to join in yarn when working the other directions. If you finish a side of sc at a finished corner I used the invisible join method to attach it to the finished corner. All stitches were worked on the outside loops only as shown below.
