You can find the hexagon pattern and tutorial at Lucy’s Attic 24 blog. I love her use of colour, so I frequently check out her blog to see what she is working on.
I’ve always wanted to do a hexagon blanket, and decided this would be a great way to use up those odd balls of yarn. Yesterday was a dull, overcast day, with flurries on and off, so a perfect day to be working with vibrant colours. This will be an on-going project where I will incorporate colours as I gradually dig through my stash. The challenge will be at the end when I eventually have to lay the blocks out and join them together.
The crochet guild I belong to, Toronto Hookups, had a stash exchange recently and I walked away with some white and baby blue chunky yarn. Initially I was going to do a ripple blanket but decided to play it safe and instead will turn the yarn into a series of squares I will stitch together into a blanket. I was afraid that I would encounter my usual problem with ripple blankets, running out of a colour since I never have a set number of rows for each colour and make it up as I go.
