Hexagon Prayer Shawl WIP

I finally have more color this week in my prayer shawl.  Lots of color!  I put my hexagons together a couple of different ways, and I think I have found the way I like.  I am going to do rows of 6 hexies, and then rows of five hexies.  I think I need to crochet about seventeen rows of hexagons to get the length I want, from wrist to wrist.  I have five rows of hexies crocheted, so I am a little less than a third finished.

I have been trying to figure out a way to join the rows together.  One method is the flat braid method, which is usually used with granny squares.  I have tried a couple of times and the picture below shows the latest result.

I have mixed feelings about whether I like this or not.  What is your opinion?  Does any one have a suggestion on how these should be joined?

I am linking with the posts on my Sharing page.  You can see other WIPs there as well.

I like the look of the shawl, looking forward to seeing it when it's finished.
I don't have any advice on the joining part.Never done anything like it, only my monkey blanket, and that doesn't really count ,since the colors of the motifs where the same.

I think the second picture shows the way how you should join the hexagons. I also find the colours beautiful but maybe more for the cold season.

This is so neat looking, I like how lacy each hex looks. It reminds me of the BeeKeeper Quilt a bit by Little Owl Knits. She just sewed the corners together...maybe that would work. I don't know. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my Blue and White Gnome Hat. Feedback is such a help.
