{Crochet} Springtime Hexie

 

crochet hexagonHere is my simple and sweet crochet Springtime Hexie. It’s a simple round motif that can be turned into a hexagon. I’ve used 8ply Cotton Blend for my hexies, but any 8ply yarn will do. I’ve used a 3.5mm hook. The instructions are in UK terms but I’ve included UK and US Shorthand Instructions at the end of the tutorial. Happy Spring!

    Hello Mandy,
    Just wondering with your Flower Power blanket, how to you join up all your squares and what stitch did you use to edge the blanket?
    Cheers

      hi Em!
      I used a DC double crochet (UK) to join the squares together. I’ve just trebled around the edges….nice and easy 🙂
