These colors look so amazing together. I love patterns like this that are different shaped than your traditional granny squares. If these colors do not fit with your decor, you could substitute any colors you like and make this just as beautifully. What are your favorite colors for an afghan?

Patterns made with motifs are one of my favorite types of projects. I think this honeycomb design is really pretty. I am not a fan of the colors but I know with some color adjustments this will be a great addition to the ever growing afghan collection that I have.

I would have loved to have some pictures to look at as how to join these motifs as you go. I have a little experience with motif projects and I think I can figure it out. Love the design and I can not wait to get started. I want to give this as a Christmas gift this year to my sister in law.

Another great retro design for a throw or afghan that the ladies at the chronic care facility that a few of us crochet for are going to love! A lovely color combination too. Most of the clients at the facility are elderly and the ladies respond with delight when we crochet granny square wraps or afghans for them.

Wow. There is a center of attraction in this throw - the red star in the center of each hexagon. Beautiful. And the gray stripes surrounding the star gives a contrasting effect to the afghan. It helps that the pattern is just right on the same page.

I love these join as you go projects - they're so great for working on the go!

How do you work out what ply wool to use.I am in Australia and don't understand what worsted weight means as we usually just go on ply

I can't read the diagram. It is too small a picture. Thank you; Diana
