Joining the hexagons: 
Join as you go method.

For the first hexagon: standing sc in any ch 4, ch 4, sc in the next ch 4, continue this way, sl st into the first sc. (the first hexagon is the purple one in the chart)

For the rest of the hexagons: when you reach the side that you want to join, ch 2, make a sl st into the ch 4 (of the hexagon you want to join it to), ch 2, sc into the next ch 4 of the hexagon.  

When you are joining the corner of one hexagon to two other hexagons corners already joined together, make a sl st in the sl st previously made.
