by M. J. Joachim
This pattern uses two colors, one for a button type center, the other to make a circle within a hexagon. You can probably get very creative with your colors and make something truly amazing when working up this motif.
Uses 2 colors: Color A & Color B
Step 1:  Chain 2, slip stitch in 2nd chain from hook; chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make one more double crochet in same place, chain 1
Step 2:  Make 2 dc + chain 1 (5 more times); join with slip stitch to top chain of 1st dc
Step 3:  Slip stitch in next double crochet and into 1st chain 1 space; chain 1, single crochet in same place
Step 4:  Chain 3, single crochet in next chain 1 space
[Repeat Step 4 around, ending with chain 3 and a slip stitch to 1st single crochet in round.]
Finish off Color A.
Step 5:  Join Color B to any chain 3 loop; chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make 2 more dc in same place; make 1 pineapple stitch in same place, followed by 3 dc in same place
Step 6:  Make {3 dc, 1 pineapple stitch, 3 dc} in each chain 3 space around. Join with a slip stitch to top chain of 1st double crochet
Step 7:  Chain 1, single crochet in same place; single crochet in each stitch around, ending with a slip stitch to 1st single crochet in round
Step 8:  Chain 1, single crochet in same place
Step 9:  Chain 9, single crochet in 7th stitch from hook
[Repeat Step 9 around, ending with chain 7 and a slip stitch to 1st single crochet in round.]
Step 10:  Slip stitch in each of the next 5 chain stitches; chain 1, make {1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1hdc, 1 sc} in same place
Step 11:  Chain 5, make stitch sequence in Step 10 in next chain loop
[Repeat Step 11 around, ending with chain 5 and joining with a slip stitch to 1st single crochet in round.]
