I love your hexagons am already on the way to creating a beautiful lap rug for charity. However the sides look fine kind of zig zag but the ends tend to stick out a bit because there is more of the hexagon showing if you know what I mean. Do you do some kind of edging or just leave it as it is.


Hello Lucy, just commented on your last post but I have a question about the yarn you used for the hexagon blanket. How many yards is the 50gr skein you used?
I am using a 110gr skein that is 250 meters long. I have the feeling that the blanket will turn out quite heavy.. I hope I am wrong..

Here is the blanket again..

Thanks in advance for your time!


Hi! I love this pattern and thank you for posting it. I have just started making them - my first time ever making a granny square type blanket - so excited! Can you tell me about how many little circlets I need to make before I join them to each other for the blanket? I want to make them all first then join them together. Thanks!


Hi Lucy, So glad you are back Thanks soooo much for the hexagon tutorial I am ready to go but just one question did you work totally random for your colors or did you make a certain number in each color combination and then start to join them also how many balls of eash color did you use THANKS and keep brightening my days


Your crochet is awe inspiring! Thank you for sharing this, very good photos and clear directions.. I'm sure I will still have trouble but I am determined to work it out.
I'll be stopping by your blog again and browsing some more! Lovely Work!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I've admired the beautiful hexagon afghans on flickr, but was a bit daunted by the prospect of making one.
I've just made my first hexagon while sitting in front of the computer reading this, and it was easy! I'm quite a novice at reading crochet patterns, but your instructions and photos are wonderful :)


Hi Lucy! Could you please take a look at my hexi afghan in process. Was I supposed to be attaching in strips? My poor blankie is not laying flat. Something seems to be a-miss http://www.ravelry.com/projects/squirlko/hexagon-how-to

hi Lucy,
I discovered Rowan handknit DK cotton on your blog!! I have made a command (there is no Rowan in France) to make my own hexagon cover (I LOVE IT). I don't know this yarn but I've command 16 colours. How many ball of each colors had you needed??
(sorry for my laborious english!!!!)
Your blog is the better than I know, thank you very much!!!


I feel so silly, I have 3 hexagon's completed (yah for me)! The circle part of the motif is not laying totally flat, is this alright? I am trying to do the attach as you go method and have a question. Can I do this with only 3 hexagon's done or do I need a total of 6 (one for each side) I can't picture how to keep adding on. (blush) Thanks so very much!!!


I am a big fan of you, Lucy... You make really great things and reading and seeing your colorful photos on your blog makes me so happy!
Now I'm busy with the hexagons ;o)
Your tutorial is wonderful and with such GREAT tips!
Thank you very much for sharing...


I love, love, love this pattern and have been busily attaching them as I go. I now have a very strangely-shaped mass. Help!


Thank you for taking the time and effort to post this excellent hexagon pattern. I'm completely new to the wonderful world of crocheting, but still found your description very very easy to follow, even in English. I had a similar pattern in my native language Danish, but didn't understand a thing...

Best regards from Copenhagen, Denmark :)


hi there, i love your beautiful, beautiful blog - it makes me so happy! just wondering if you could tell me how to make this granny square into a square as opposed to a hexagon. i am new to crochet & love the pattern of the 3 inner layers resembling a sunburst but would like to try a simpler version as its my first try at crochet. maybe once i get into it, i can brave trying the hexagon! thnx in advance

You make this look so easy. I'll put it on my to do list. I like the idea of sewing each hex together as you go. That way it doesn't just look like a big pile you have to sew together at the end. If you know what I mean!!


Thank you for the easy-to-follow instructions, it's so good of you to share. I'm just learning to crochet, but it's very enjoyable. And I love coming to your everyday!


Your afghans are beautiful and your description and photos are clear. Thank you. I have made over 250 3 color hexagons and now need to start joining them for an afghan. I can't follow your link-as-you-go because of my colors, etc. Do you have any idea what is the best way to join the hexagons? In other words, which pattern of stitching leaves me with the least amount of joining only one side together?


Thank you so much! You made this easy to understand, and I get it now. I love your pattern too! Your hexagon blanket is so beautiful.

Thanks so much for the easy to read pattern. I love your blanket. How much of each yarn do I need to buy. Thanks again


Hello, thank you so much for the instructions. I´m doing an hexagon blanket now! I´m using portuguese yarns (since I´m portuguese :)) but I would love to try the ones you used. Unfortunately I can´t find them near me so I´ll have to buy on the net. Can you please tell me the measures of your blanket and the amount of yarn you bought so I can have an idea of how much I need to buy? Thank you so much!
You can see my blanket here http://donapontomaria.blogspot.com/2009/02/cobertor.html


These are FAB Lucy!!...i adore hexagons and i made three crochet hexagons today, following your instructions, [which were very easy to understand by the way, thanks]i've popped them on my blog and put a link to your blog so everyone can discover the fun of crochet hexagons :) cheers, Marian


Thank you!!!!!!
very easy to read and follow...
my husband loves it too.

Thank you for working this out and posting it! I came across the hexagon phenomenon on Ravelry and no one had a pattern in English :(. I have a stash I inherited from both of my grandmothers and I finally have a project that will do it justice (and use it up!!!!!)


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your crocheted hexagons & i can't wait to get started even if it is summer downunder lol!!!!! Thanx for sharing :)xx

I just find your blog a few weeks ago, and I am absolutely hooked :), thank you sooooo much for letting us see all of your work! So colourful and happy! I just have a little question about this hexagon blanket. I read here that I need 16 different colours for it, but how many balls of yarn do I need? Is it enough with just one for each colour? Have a great day!


oh! I am so excited! I have always wanted to do a hexagon but had no clue where to find a pattern! I found yours last night and followed your WONDERFUL instructions! I have already made 2 and connected them like you explained to boot! Thankyou soooo Much! :) Do you have a method for choosing which colors to use for each hexagon? Like do you go light from dark starting from the center? or do you just mix and match however you are feeling at the moment? I have enjoyed looking at all your wonderful creations! Thankyou for sharing!
