Hexagon blanket

I have had such fun making this, and am delighted with the results – it has a sort of dated charm I think!

The hexagon idea originally came from Erica Knight’s book ‘Essential crochet’. I found a tutorial for making the half hexagons on the ‘Polka dot cottage’ website, then a video showing how to ‘join as you go’ on Youtube. I have never blocked my work before but this blanket really needed it to get all the shapes fitting together properly with a straight edge.
Made in Rowan wool cotton DK Larkspur, Ship-shape, Cypress, Celadon, Smalt, Paper, Clear, Bilberry, Grand, Frozen, Dream (discontinued) Mellow yellow (discontinued) Bronze (discontinued) and Oxblood. All on a 4mm hook.
