As fond as I am of granny squares, I have yet to create a project with granny square hexagons. Looking over this pattern may consider make it as a baby blanket but not as a full afghan. Because the granny hexagons are so small you will be making them forever. I love the concept though.

The skill level for this patter is showing as intermediate but if you ask me I believe an advanced beginner can give this one a go. The hard part is joining the hexagons and once you figure it out the project will go like clock work.

I happen to like the variety of colors that she chose for this afghan. Again, you can switch it up to suit your decor and to your own liking. If you're more of a neutral gal, use taupes, grays and creams. That would be lovely and so serene. THere is nothing wrong with the pattern for the hexagons themselves. Use the pattern but chose your own yarn colors.

This is an amazing pattern! I enjoy making granny squares, but sometimes it can be monotonous. This pattern looks relatively easy to follow, and would provide just enough of a difference to be unique. I am not a big fan of the colors, though. I would likely choose brighter colors, such as pink, purple, and yellow.

I really like this different take on the standard Granny square. Oddly enough I have never crocheted a hexagon so that will be something new for me and the colors I am thinking of are quite different from the ones shown in the pattern. My teenage daughter, Lily, wants to learn to crochet so this is going to be our first joint project.

If you go to the website and then scroll down to the first paragraph that says, "Last week I shared with you my pattern for making granny hexagons" you will find a link to the pattern for the hexigons. Then go to the last picture on that page and you will find another link telling you how to join them together. I like this pattern and it's definitely on my to-do list. If you don't like the colors you can always change them. I like them because I think it makes the afghan look more like a quilt. This would be a great way to use up some leftover yarns.

I cannot download or print this pattern. This happens a lot when I am re-directed to someone's website.

Certainly an unusual combination of colors.
