Sunburst Hexagon Blanket No. 2

Hi there,

I have been wanting to try this color combination for a while and I love it. It slightly out of my comfort zone but still can blend in really well. Let me know what you think. I have made this blanket before, check-it-out.

So this blanket is a result of a number of patterns

1. Pattern for the actual sunburst hexagons can be found here. This is a free pattern and is super easy. you can use scrap yarn or play with colors on this one.

2. Joining – I used a continuous join as you go method for hexagon blankets. A tutorial for which can be found here. I love using continuous join as you go for the twists between the hexagons. So pretty.

3. Edging – I squared of the edges before doing a border by doing half hexagons on one side and just long stitches on the other. The border itself 2 rounds of granny stitch. One round of 1sc ch2 in blue. One round of granny. One round of 1sc ch2 in maize and one round of granny stitch.
