Sunburst hexagon blanket

All of last week I have been working on this pretty, colorful and fun granny sunburst hexagon baby blanket.

This is so addictive and too much fun. I couldn’t put it down once I started making the circles. And you don’t have to do the flowers in gradients of colors you can do it using scrap yarn. There is so much room to play around with colors here. and they blend really well. I have used this pattern before as sunburst squares but sunburst hexagons are super duper fun. I even made halves to square off the edges.

Here is a link to the hexagon pattern. and here is the continuous-join-as-you-go-hexagon joining method I used for this. Absolutely adore the little twists between the hexies!!!
