there must be something in the air i am also doing hexagonsReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nicole - I think the bottom yarn is called "Impeccable" and I bought it from Michael's.ReplyDelete
Crochet dude - they are addicting, aren't they?
Very pretty, Debi. :)ReplyDelete
These are lovely!! What are you going to make with them?ReplyDelete
Pretty hexagons Debi! I'm working on hexagons too (African Flowers). Love them, they are a lot of fun. Have a great day!ReplyDelete
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
I'm going to fashion up a dly's baby blankie with them.

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. :)Delete

What is your recommendation for joining these into stripsReplyDelete
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'. :)Delete

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.
Dly's I need your help please. I love this pattern, but can you help me figure out how to do half hexagon of it please. Making my Granddaughters both afghan's.ReplyDelete
How would you join them to make an Afghan?ReplyDelete
You can slip stitch them together or use the flat braid joining method which you can find videos about on YouTube. :)Delete
