Wow thank you soo much! the only thing that was unclear was the circle, but a little stop at youtube fixed that and when i came back to read again it made perfect sense! once again cant thank you enough, im on my way to start my blanket now haha!


Hello! Found this hexagon thrue a Swedish page (sorry for ny bad english). I really love this pattern. May i use it in a pattern i'm creating? I'm going to do a turtle and its shell is going go bee hexagons. :)

Oh, how we find people. I was looking through Pinterest at quilts for ideas (not that I don't have any). I found a link to a lady who apparently lives in Australia (and I never found the information about the quilt) and she had come to England and tried to find you. So, I looked for your website and found the crocheted hexies. I'm currently working on a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. My mother hand pieced and hand quilted one for me and one for my brother before she died. I knew mine was precious and I never put it on my bed. It was stolen along with most of the material things that I inherited from my parents. She made a yellow center in all the flowers - most flowers have a yellow center. Then the next round is a solid color. The next round is a print (usually small, but not a requirement). Then they are joined by green hexagons - like grass. Some versions use a round of white before the green. Some also use blue instead of green to represent the sea. I had one quilt teacher tell me that my mother's pattern was wrong!!!! My local quilt shop owner says she has a quilt made by her mother that does not use the white round - it is my quilt and I can make it how I want and there is not wrong way! So, I am slowly progressing. Some people use English paper piecing. I am hand piecing mine in the traditional way with a 1/4" seam. I have crocheted 4 afghans in my life. I cannot read a pattern to save my life. My mother taught me to what I guess I would call traditional granny squares. So, I can find crocheting to be very intimidating. I think with your wonderful information, I can do it!! I think after I get over a busy summer, I may try it. I have a quilt retreat in July. Then I'm coming from the US to England, my paternal grandfather's homeland. I get emotional just thinking about it. He lived 1/4 mi from me and died 1 month before I graduated from college. So, I knew him well. Thanks for your wonderful blog.

thank you for share ..I love this pattern..


Hi! I started this blanket after receiving my Rowan yarn in the mail (can't buy locally in my area of the states) ... It's coming along beautifully but I don't see instructions for the borders or how many balls were needed for each. I also hope that my ends stay put because the yarn seems so soft! So 2-3 hexagons a day ... This is going to take a while :). Thanks so much for the very clear instructions! -Lizzie

Hi Lucy. I love the hexagons, and have just finished making a bunch of them and am starting to put them together. I have never made them before and really love the look of them. Can you please give me some instructions for making a border once their together? I've Googled some pics and sites and I'm not keen on adding the half hexagon as I really want to do something different so I don't want it to be a rectangle, I want the hexagon jaggered edge look. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you.



Thank you so much for the excellent tutorial. I already stated a baby blanket. I hope I will be able to finish and show you how I ended up.

Ayesha Haque

Do you know how to make a crochet peace sign?

Marie Craig

I love your hexagon pattern and got started as soon as I got my yarn. However, I am making my hexagons and then going to put them together but I don't see the instructions. Can you please let me know how to do this? The colors you used are gorgeous !!! Thanks for sharing your talent. Your instructions were so well written. I am in Rock Hill, SC and I look forward to hearing from you.


Thank you sooo much for this. Great Pictures.


Brent Williams - Benchmark CompanyHi, guys. Jean Orr - Nutmeg Securities No. I don't like raisins baked into anything such as bread. And Gordon, since you've just talked about DataXtend SI, I think lastly, this one's for Rick, any color on the NEON, the Shadow stuff and the mainframe stuff? I love to snack on cherry huizen modellen in suriname tomatoes. The news just got worse for Cleveland: fictional Indians manager Lou Brown has passed.


I just found this tutorial....and looks like I'll be able to now (finally) join as I go!!! Most times I couldn't understand what I was supposed to do!!!!

I hope you are still crocheting!!! I look forward to checking out more of your stuff!!

Thanks so much for your amazing blog! I just started crocheting a few months ago and I just recently finished a variation on your granny stripe blanket. It turned out great and I absolutely love it. I thought I would start on this hexagon blanket because I have been dying to make granny squares and this is a neat variation. I was just curious if, when the blanket is finished, you can make it form a rectangle or if it will be sort of hexagony around the edges, if you know what I mean. I'm just wondering if there is a certain way you should join the hexagons or if it doesn't really matter. ANyway, thanks again, love the blog.


At the Mott Street branch, group insurance fort wayne which is the process of creating deliverables. Not just that, they will deliver the same quality. One of the slides said that nation-states were attacking the group insurance fort wayne government systems all the time in which you living needs to be diligently observed and enforced until it becomes second naature to workers. I would like to talk further or to have a lot more detail about our build system is multifunctional.

Andrea May Foster

Hi! I was wondering if you have a tutorial on how to join already finished hexes? I have 70-ish done already that I need to join. I found one that I like, but it is for squares. It is a flat join...kind of "zippers" them together. but i cant figure out the corners. or exactly how to get the darn things to go together right. and still be flat. thanks if you can help!


Colorful, bright, detailed and tedious work; awesome work!


I have to share this story. About 13 years ago I had to take my son for tests at a Children's hosp. in Cincinnati, Oh. I was working on an afghan for a Christmas gift. A young girl, (14 or 15 ) asked her mother quietly what I was doing. The mother looked up and stated, "That is crochet, an art of the older generation." I was in my early 30's at the time. My husband laughs about that every
time I start something new.

Angela Graham

This is great, you said you made it California King size? How many hexagons did it take I want to make this for my mother and I understand your directions just fine, I cant wait to start I want to have it complete for Christmas. I have tried several times to make my own pattern and failed miserably so I am beyond excited!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write it out and post it w/ pics.
Thanks again.
