Blocking the Hexagons: 

It is important to block the hexagons before you join them, so that they are the same size. 

  • Place Hexagon #2 on a blocking mat or foam. 
  • Stretch the hexagon so that it lies flat, by placing pins into the center and the 6 corner ch-1 sps. 
  • Measure the length and width of the hexagon. It should measure approximately 9” long by 8” wide. 
  • Repeat the steps above for Hexagon #1, making sure that it measures 9” long by 8” wide when pinned.
  • With a steamer or spray bottle, gently steam/spray each hexagon. When using a steamer, stay at least 2 inches away from the hexagon, so the yarn doesn’t burn. 
  • Gently pat the steam/water into the hexagons with your hand.
  • Allow the hexagons to dry completely before unpinning them.

Joining the Two Hexagons: 

To join the hexagons together, place Hexagon #2 on top of Hexagon #1, making sure that the wrong sides are touching and the right sides are facing out. Remove the stitch marker from the loop of Hexagon #2, then place the loop on your hook and tighten it up. Ch 1.

Going through the matching sts/ch-1sps of both hexagons, [3 hdc in ch-1 sp, hdc in next 15 sts] 5 times. Proceed to the instructions below for adding a ch-circle, before completing the last side.

In last ch-1 sp: 2 hdc, ch 13, insert hook into the front loop and the 2 legs of the second hdc and make a sl st – this creates a ch-circle. Hdc in same ch-1 sp.

Hdc in last 15 sts. Do not join with a sl st; instead, proceed to the invisible join method below. <108 hdc>

Invisible Join Method:

To create a seamless join at the end of the potholder, try the invisible join method below. It really works, so you won’t be able to see where you fastened off!

  • After working the last st, pull up the loop on the hook to make a long tail for seaming, and cut the strand. (Picture 1 & 2)
  • Thread a yarn needle with the tail, and insert needle from back to front through the 2 loops of the second st of the rnd. (Picture 3 & 4)
  • Insert needle from front to back into the back loop of the last st of the rnd. (Picture 5 & 6)
  • On the back side of your potholder, weave the tail through a few stitches to pull the join closed. (Picture 7)
  • Now weave in your end normally, and make a knot to secure it. This creates a seamless join! (Picture 8)
