Granny Hexagon Afghan


Instead of the typical granny square afghan pattern, check out this Granny Hexagon Afghan, which uses hexagons instead of crochet granny squares. The fun shapes and patterns create an eye-catching design that will brighten up your home. Use this crochet afghan as a throw on your couch or for the warmth you desire in the winter around the fire. Keep it laying around during the spring months, too, since the hexagons create a floral look that is a reminder of the new life in springtime. This crochet granny square afghan would look stunning in any color scheme you picked.

One of my very first crochet lessons was learning how to crochet granny squares. Granny squares are still one of my favorites. Then I happened across a book of granny squares that were anything but. I love the fact that the granny square can be almost any geometric shape. This is a beautiful piece made with said granny hexagons.

The colors of this Granny Hexagon afghan really flow well. I love to add a little pop of color in my projects but I also like to be really plain when the pattern calls for it. No matter how you go with this, plain or bold the end project will be beautiful. Do not forget to block before you piece them together.

I think I have THE PERFECT yarn to buy from Michaels to make up this afghan. The Colorwheel yarn, in its full spectrum of colors in many different tones. I would do a mix of a whole bunch- just almost a random choice. However, how high style would this be if I did it in a specific colorway, like all teals and greens, or all fushias/violets/pinks? There are so many ways to work this up to suit your own personal decor and taste and that is what makes up a great design.

My mother made a crochet afghan very similar to this one many years ago. I was hoping to find the pattern for it among all her crafting items when I cleaned her house last week, but it was no where to be found. I might be able to use this pattern for a template and customize it to look like hers.

As well as garments and small quickly made articles, I like to make blankets/afghans. I like to have a big project to pick up from time to time so that I can get a bit of variety in my crochet. Do you do this too? I can't possibly be the only one like that! Love this design.

This is so lovely. I've always been attracted to bright and attractive colors. The play of earth colors are just so awesome. Here's the link to the pattern http// == on-afghan-pattern-tutorial/. Thanks for being so generous for sharing the pattern and the tutorial. I will definitely make this afghan. I will pin it for future reference and for collection.

This is such a cheerful afghan and a nice variation on the standard granny square. Its great for new crocheters. Its also a perfect summer crochet project since you can work on the individual motifs and wait until cooler weather to put it together. If you want to make it a stash buster, just be sure to use the same type of yarn to achieve gauge and to avoid any problems when laundering.
