Previously on Moogly... I shared the Traditional Hexagon Motif, which is a great jumping off point for lots of great patterns and projects.
But the thing about hexagons is that when you put them together they leave little half-hex sized gaps around the sides. So we cut it in half! The Traditional Half Hexagon Motif is the solution to fill in those spaces and give you a nice straight edge.
Here's how to crochet the Traditional Half Hexagon Motif!
