This pattern is made up of 12 diamond crochet motifs. I have an easy to follow tutorial available for you to succeed if you are new to crochet. You can find that tutorial here:
You will crochet each diamond individually. I recommend working with the diamonds that will make up the star first, then adding the outer diamonds.
This pattern is incredibly versatile and can be used to piece together something incredible. I plan on using this hexagon to mount and hang in our guest bedroom. I also see this motif being used to create a breath taking afghan. What ever you decide to turn it into, please share your photos with me on social!

For more information on blocking, I recommend you check out my blocking tutorial. You can find that tutorial here:
Join the Diamonds
Using the image above and your wine colorway, crochet your six “star” diamonds together in the shape of a star using the reverse single crochet. It helps if you lay your diamonds out on a flat surface first. Work it one diamond at a time, making only one Rsc in each stitch of the diamonds.
If you are unfamiliar with the reverse single crochet, I recommend you have a look at my tutorial here:
[alert-note]The diamonds will not fit together perfectly at first. I recommend laying them in position and blocking them into the star shape before crocheting them together. It isn’t required but I think you’ll have better results if you do.[/alert-note]
Using the image above and your wine colorway, crochet your six “background” diamonds together using the reverse single crochet.

[alert-note]Blocking one last time is a good idea to get a clean hexagon shape![/alert-note]
