Freja, mostly known as the Goddess of Love, but also Godess of falling in love, unrequited love and child birth (I’m recently an Auntie again!, is the 12th hexie of #52weeksofhexies. Bymami crochets/designs a new hexie each week and the plan is to crochet them all together into a blanket in the end. The blanket will be named ‘Valkyrie’. Read more about the project and find the pattern for the first hexie here and see all the hexies here.
Important to know about the hexies: Some hexagons end with a stitch count of 60, while others end with 66 stitches. The uneven number of stitches will be aligned when the blanket is assembled in the end. Also, because of time pressure, the patterns have not been tested, so if you discover any mistakes, please let me know so I can fix it!

HOW ITS MADE
The pattern states where to begin each round, not how to begin it. All rounds are closed invisibly or using a slip stitch to the 1st stItch. The 1st stitch is replaced by ch1=1sc, ch2=1dc etc.
- In a magic ring, put *6 sc (6)
- In each st put 3 dc (18)
- Beg in any st, *dc4tog, ch2, sl st in next st, ch2*. Rep 9x total (9 petals)
- Beg in top of a dc4tog: *1 sc, ch4*. Rep 9x total (45)
- This round is a bit tricky because it is asymmetrical and goes from 9 petals to 6 corners. Just remeber that there must be 6 sc between each corner. Beg in a ch sp and put *3 dc, [1 hdc, ch1, 1 hdc] (corner made). In next ch sp put 6 sc, in next ch sp put [1 hdc, ch1, 1 hdc], 3 sc*. Repeat 3x total (54)
- 1 sc in each st, in corner ch sp put [1 sc, ch1, 1 sc] (66)
