This is my current work in progress, its a costal inspired Hexagon blanket, well actually, I had intended making a bed runner but the sewing together is driving me nuts🤣 just me being slow.
Ive chosen this project as its easy to pick up and put down, just what I need while the house is being revamped🥰 and I cant easily access my sewing machine. Each Hexagon takes around 10-15 minutes to make and i made up around 200 before i started sewing them together.
I’ve opted to sew mine together and initially I used the lightest yarn per side but three rows 😖 in I reverted to silver. I now lay out my selection for the next strip, sew the strip together, then i attach it to the main blanket. The great thing is its now the perfect size to keep me cosy as the nights draw in and the temperature drops.
The recipe for mine (you can trade out a colour pallet to suit) is Stylecraft Special DK, 7 or 14 balls depending on your finished size requirement. Im going for the 14 balls.
on the site you can choose a mixed pack of 10 balls for £18 and just add the additional colours if your doing a big one. Better still round it up to 2 x 10 packs and make it up with colours to built your stash for best savings x
Ill see about doing a small video showing the pattern for a hexagon but essentially it three rounds of appropriately spaced trebles. Another time saver I’d consider in future would be five rows of trebles.
I hope you like it 🥰
