last night I started on my new crochet project. I am planning to make myself a hexagon blanket to snuggle under with Gracie and Bella. I'm following Lucy's pattern over on Attic 24, she's done a lovely clear tutorial if you fancied having a go at this one yourself. Not sure we are going to let any of the others snuggle with us, depends how big I make this blanket ;) I had chosen six colours for the blanket five for the centres and cream for all the edges, just after I started making the centres I decided to boost my colour selection by adding a darker green, paler blue and a dark salmon (light red).
I sat last night and hooked all 140 centres. I'm starting the second row tonight working the hexagons in rounds and colours rather than completing a hexagon at a time. Once I have row three complete on all 140 hexagons then I will start the final row of each hexagon in cream joining them together as I go.
I'll keep you posted on how it grows.
