Thanks so much for the pattern 😀

Wow, I'm late to this party, hehe!

I was curious about how many hexagons you ended up using in your blanket. I am planning out my pattern of them and would like to know what I'm getting into!

Ruth Noble

I just found this yesterday and cracked making hexagons (thank you) and am looking forward to using my Christmas wool for a hexagon blanket. What are the principles for colour choices and combinations? I notice that you have yellow for all your centres, would you advise a brighter colour centres? I am planning to use more muted colours and would value advice before I order.

Kim Mason

I am so excited to get started with these lovely hexagons! How many hexagons to make a blanket? I am traveling overseas and planning on working on the circle part while traveling and then putting it together when I get home :)

Beate

Hello! I am working on a blanket in this pattern. I chose to do individual hexagons, but know I am having a difficult time figuring how to join them. I know you can sew them, but I can't wrap my head around the best way to do that. Any tips you could give would be very much appreciated!

Shelagh

Thank you for the clear instructions! I haven't crocheted for over 35 years and only ever learned a treble stitch as a child and I have successfully made a hexagon. I'm chuffed to bits :D Time to visit my local wool shop I think.

Saf

P.S. I realized that I may not have not been entirely clear I meant the edges of the BLANKET not the hexagons. Sorry. and still a huge fan. SO glad i found you on ravelry.

Saf

Dear Lucy Ir really like this pattern and the way you have written it out. However I have encountered a problem with the edges. One side looks correct but the other is just wierd looking. I am very worried I have done something wrong. Could you please let me know what to do with the edges? Even just a few pics would make world of difference. Thxs and I'm a huge fan.

Laura Lewakowski

I too just stumbled upon your post. I was looking for a summer project, and this fits the bill. I can crochet bits and pieces at work, and put them together later! Thanks so much for your detailed instructions and clear illustrations!

Linda Duff

Thank you very much for info . I'm wanting to try this soon l lDuff

Rose Scalamandre

Thanks for the join as you go pattern. My blanket came out so much nicer because of your idea. :)

Sabrina Jaye

Oh my! I just made my first hex and I love it! Your pictures and your instructions make learning to crochet so easy! My first project ever were ripply baby blankets for my twin grandbabies --Jaye and Lyla! They were so easy with your instructions and pictures. Now, I will work on two of these. Thank you for continuing to inspire!

Uneaklynn

Stumbled on your post. I love the colors, being in your weather sister in the states, Oregon. All those bright colors do make a difference in perspective on those long rainy/overcast days. Thanks for your well written instructions.

Darlean

Thank you .

Kristin

I am making my first hexagons and they are both curling up on me. Do you know what I could be doing wrong? Thanks :)

Miranda

Hello,
I want to make a blanket with these hexagon's. But how must i make the edges?
I like this so much

Alison Griffiths

I just love the way you write, I imagine it's just how you talk. It gives your blog a friendly and inclusive air, which of course you back up with the generosity of time and effort you give to your readers. I wish I had a friend like you, there would be much tea/coffee and yarn talk. I love colour but I'm not great at putting them together, so the Heidi happypotomus is proving a challenge, your blog is great inspiration because you have lovely colour schemes.

sue

hello, i am doing this pattern for my niece for her baby pram and wondered if you knew of some were that does the half hexagon to finish it off. love the pattern

cleopiti

Thank you ! From France !!!
I promess you I try to do it soon.
Very nice hexagon.

Pascale

Thank you, your tutorial is very clear, even for a foreigner!
I'm planning to make a cardigan with these hexagons but I'd like bigger ones - how can I make them bigger? Can I add more rounds before the final one that forms the hexagon shape? I don't really know how to do that, what would you suggest?

Molly Russo

Hi Lucy!
I am new to this (and from the US)...I'm attempting to make something like this for my mom in blanket form. About how many yards of yarn do you think I would need? Thanks so much!!

MJB

I love your color choices but how much of each color did you use
