Crochet Hexagon baby blanket - Ta......da.....

Hi friends

Hope all r doing well.  From my side I am busy crocheting for a sale in my church in September.  I have completed some projects and one is a hexagon crochet blanket.  Whenever I see a hexagon in crochet it tempts me to start something on it.  This time I started with a plan of doing a blanket for a single bed.  But I ended up doing a baby blanket. I like to crochet hexagons.  But I didn't like the joining part.  So much to join and so many odd ends. So I finished it into a baby blanket.  On the whole it is a relaxing process.  This is my finished blanket.



I made 5 hexagon flowers with 7 hexagons.  Each hexagon is a of 5 rounds of solid granny hexagon .  Around that I added 12 hexagons to make another round.  Then made half hexagon flower to bring the blanket to rectangle shape.


For joining I place two hexagons with the right sides together and sew then thru the corresponding back loops. 



Yarn used : 4 ply acrylic yarn from pradhan.
Hook used : 4 mm
Pattern: Solid granny hexagon.  

I am happy that I have completed this blanket within a short period  concentrating only on this.  One more crochet bag is completed.  Waiting for a zipper to get attached.  It will take only an hour to do it.  But it is getting postponed.  I don't know why this happens with most of my projects.  Final touch takes a long time.  Now a days I am addicted to see the videos of creative grandma in you tube.  She teaches crochet stitches that creates a nice texture and have done some swatches watching her videos.  As my next crochet project I am planning to make another bag with one of those stitches.

On my embroidery hoop now

Will come up about this in my next post.  Till then, Happy crocheting and embroidering.

  1. Your blanket is beautiful. Of course the boring part is joining and weaving in the ends.
