Thank you for the step by step. I have been looking for a new "granny square" pattern to use to make my blankets with. This will be fun!

Carol Archer

Absolutely adorable! I think this will be my next project. Thanks for sharing. And, I love that you used cotton!

Maria

Even if I'm Italian, so I don't speak English very well, I find your explication very easy to understand. Thank you very much :) I love the colours of your life!

Amber

I know I'm a few years late in commenting, but I just found this pattern and can't wait to give it a go. I've made a practice hexagon and it came out beautifully. Now, I'm off to the store to purchase the correct colors. Thanks so much for sharing!

Karl Gjoerloff

This is just beautiful! I am also going to make one :)

Thanks,

Karl

Rosie

I just wanted to say that I am new to crocheting and I have fallen in love with your patterns...the problem is that I have spent the past two days learning the terminology for US crochet, but I love your tutorials so much ,do you know of any web sight that will translate the stitches...

Patricia Pike

I've been crocheting for 12 hours (not straight; I first picked up a hook 12 hours ago). I made one granny sqaure, pretty simple, so I found your wonderful tutorial via Ravelry and am working on my first hexagon. I'm afraid I'm stumped on Round 2:

"So this is the pattern for round 2::

Chain 2, then 1 US dc/UK tr in same stitch. Chain 1.

Work a bobble stitch into next stitch as described above, then chain 1 to space."

I can't for the life of me figure out if 'chain 1 to space' means I'm meant to anchor it to the space somehow, or if I chain one and then chain another two to start the sequence again. Studying the photo, it doesn't look like I'm meant to anchor it to the space. So should I just be chaining three?

I bet you love getting questions like this, four years after publishing a tutorial! I'm going to proceed with chaining three and see how I go. If I'm wrong I'm sure I'll find out soon enough!

Hi Lucy!!
I absolutely love love love your blog, I follow it unconditionally, check in everyday juuust in case :).
I am halfway through a project, a pillowcase made entirely of hexagons, but I've hit a snag- I have NO idea how to make up the corners for the pillow case, so I don't know what to do with it. I was wondering if you knew how to make the hexagon corners or if you know of any blog which might help.
Just wanted to say thank you in advance not just for the help, but if you can't provide any for the simple act of reading this and trying to help anyway. Thanks ever so much!! xxxx

Monica

This is very kind and generous of you to share this knowledge with others! I just started to crochet (long time knitter branching out!!!), and this will be enormous help to me. I love all the colors that pop! Thanks, Denise

sue smith

I love this pattern, I have only one critasym(not sure about tha spelling there) that is that it is very difficult to print out without using loads of paper as it also prints out the rest of the webb site too........but thank you any way for a realy pretty pattern...x

This blog is amazing! I'm going to make a hexagon blanket for my new baby boy. I love that everything is in 12's and he will be born in 2012 :) Thank you so much for writing this.

Ruta

They look wonderful! I've started working on a hexagon blanket too but I don't understand how to make the edges even when you sow them all together....I know this is a very old post but I was still hopping to get some advice from you....Thank you for sharing!
