Fall Blanket Hexagons!

My first hexagon blanket in fall colors is here. For this blanket, I was looking for a nice blend of fall colors. I used 5 shades from yellows-reds and brown.

The tutorial for solid hexagons that I’ve used for this blanket is available for free here. This pattern is super straight forward and you can basically modify the pattern by changing the number of hexagons. I just went diagonally. and I really am liking the way the colors blend into each other. This pattern in great for gradients. You can use closely related colors here and they’ll have an awesome flow.

I made these hexagons and joined them as you go. I will be posting a tutorial for join as you go hexagons and solid squares soon. This join as you go was for the last round of the hexagon.

I do not have any edging for this blanket yet and I am having the hardest time deciding if I should or not. So for now there is no edging.

I did make a bunch of half hexagons for squaring off the edges.

pattern for half hexies:

Ch4, join in the round by a slip stitch

ch3 (first dc) , *2dc ch2* three times, dc and turn

ch3, *dc in same space, dc on the next 2 dc, dc in space, ch2* three times, dc and turn

ch3, *dc in same space, dc on the next 4 dc, dc in space, ch2* three times, dc and finish off

As I said before, the last round you join in its space as you are crocheting it.

I promise I’ll have a tutorial soon. 🙂

Sunburst Hexagon Crochet Blanket No. 4

This past week I have been working on  this super colorful crochet blanket. It has 5 colors and joining in white.

After creating random squares on random granny square generator, I made all the rounds in three randomly chosen colors using this pattern. Finally, I joined them using continuous join as you go hexagon, the tutorial for this can be found here. I love continuous joining and this tutorial is really awesome. Saves a whole lot of time and ends to sew in.

Materials:

Caron Simply soft yarn in the colors:

white, Harvest red, Lemonade, Blue Mint, Watermelon, and Limelight.

Finished dimensions: 24X28”.

I didn’t do any edging on this blanket. My husband convinced me that the staggered edge looks good. Now, I think so too.

Staggered Chevron Baby Blanket

Hello fellow crafters,

Here is my latest staggered chevron blanket. I absolutely love this free pattern I found on Ravelry. This is a new pattern and this is the first time I’m trying it and I already love it and I can see this being made like a billion times in the future.

This time I used a blue gradient and a contrast of yellow but you can easily just make it using a bunch of different combinations and stagger the chevrons as you want.

Materials:

Caron simply soft in the colors. White, Lemonade, Robin’s Egg, Blue Mint, Ocean.

Finished dimensions: 27”X 30”

Edging: Since these are baby boy colors the edging need to be less frilly so I did a simple double crochet and one round of reverse single crochet.

Thanks a lot for stopping by. Another big crochet project just got done so it is coming soon right here.
