  2. I love joining hexagons! I think they are so much more interesting then the normal squares. Do you happen to know what the name of the bottom yarn is? Great pattern!

  3. Thanks Nicole - I think the bottom yarn is called "Impeccable" and I bought it from Michael's.

    Crochet dude - they are addicting, aren't they?

    1. Hi Beverly. To make this motif bigger - all you have to do is keep repeating Rnd 5 until the piece is as big as you would like it to be. :)

    1. Hi there. You can either slip stitch them together or use the flat braid method. The link to the flat braid method is over on the right sidebar under 'joining grannies'. :)

    Debi---I haven't tried your pattern yet, but I wish all crochet patterns were as easy to copy as yours. I don't like to down load to a to another part of my computer. I sometimes forget they are there. This looks great. Looking forward to trying it.
