Hexagon Blanket - Done!



Yay! I finished my Hexagon Blanket for my daughter. It came out quite large, I had a difficult time setting it up for a pic. I did this with Red Heart Designer Sport in Brick, took 10 skeins of yarn to complete. I started the hexagon pattern in a single crochet, which came out as the center base, then gave it a little dimension by adding a double crochet, then HDC, then finished it with a shell border. I used a G hook to start, then graduated to an H hook when I started the HDC. I really like how it came out, big enough to wrap yourself up and cuddle up for some warmth. It was a quick and easy project. Now I have to finish the one I started in Homespun (that one is for me =^.^= ) Now to pack it up and get it ready for my daughter. I am sure she will love it.

I used the pattern from a fellow Raveler (labpugglechi - her link is below). Thank you for sharing this pattern.

A true thing of beauty. I love the design of it and the edging is very nice also. I have some homespun also that I am making me a poncho out of after the holiday. It is so soft yet very warm. Good choice!

Thank you - I love Homespun yarn. Like you said, very soft and very warm. I use it often.
