Thank you very much for sharing your talent and expertise. Also, thank you for including American stitches as well as the English. How many hexagons did you use to finish your blanket and what is the size of the blanket?


this is gorgeous and can't wait to give it a try.. just curious as to how many balls of each colour you needed to complete the blanket? also, what was the finished size of it? thanks!

Thank you!! 😁 I searched and searched for a hexagon pattern that worked for me!! I am working on a turtle infant photo prop for my great-nephew that is due soon. This pattern is so easy to follow! I am making them all one color and will attach with a darker shade. Again, thank you!

I think hexagons are much more interesting than squares.God created the earth, and all its beauty in six days, and to me they are a reflection of that.It's been awhile since Ive made one tho.Thank you for sharing them with me! Bb

Thank you sooooo much! I have tried hexagon patterns before, none have worked. i followed your instructions and it worked out so well. i have already started on the 2nd one and we'll be making many more for a table topper. thank you so much for posting this.


Could you let me know your pattern of colors?
Did you repeat any patterns with your individual
Hexagons? It's very beautiful and I'm hoping
to make one like it.

Searching for ages for a readable hexagon pattern. Now! here you are with wonderful photos and, above all - an easy to understand written pattern. I've been crocheting for ages but never been able to master hexagon. Really cannot thank you enough.


I have made a bag with hexagons. . should have used squares. . I am battling with finding a please handle . . the top edge of the bag has the hex points,i have used a 4ply cotton with intentions of lining the bag. . can u help with handle ideas,I tried the dcrochet, but didn't really feel that stripes completmented the bag

This crochet is the absolute best. Love your colours and designs. Your tutorials are easy to follow. keep up the wonderful creating.


thank you so much for making this pattern I looked every for one but nun working until I used yours


Many thanks for the lovely clear instructions with pictures. I missed out the 3ch ring that you did for round 4 as I'm making it look too holey. But thanks so much for your help on hexagons, I wasn't going to make them like this as I thought they were too complicated!


How do I turn these hexagons into a square for a cushion I.e. Fill in the gaps at the end

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 the inspiration!
Here's my version of it. Or more like the second version of it. http://l6mmeleht.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/blanket-for-niece/

Or more like the second one :)


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.
