1)The first square is from Cherry Heart and I liked it but I think I did dtr in the corners and tr in the sides so I ended up with a wonky square. It used lots of treble clusters which used up lots of wool and at the time, the stash above, was all I was working with.
2)So then I designed my own square with a lime centre which was good (I did scribble it down for future reference) but I have already made a blanket out of squares so I carried on my search.
3) Next I went to Attic 24 for a hexagon tutorial. I did one in a single colour to see if I liked the shape. I found it easy to follow and fun to make.
4) Finally I did the multi coloured hexagon and was pleased with it. It weighed in at 8g so with the stash above I worked out I could make 30 - a pram blanket, a knee blanket, would I be scrimping with the border?
5)I also want to try the Granny rose one from Apple blossom Dreams but again, at the time I knew I needed more yarn.
Now of course I have a whole new 51 balls to go at which is the same yarn so the blanket can grow as I want it to.
Hooked up a few more colours...
Then a few more...
I am now officially in love with hexagons. Jo x
