Works in Progress

by Kelly

Here's the afghan I'm making with the Super Simple Hexagon pattern from a previous post. What do you think?

I've discovered there are two problems with this kind of afghan. First of all, there's the seaming. It's kind of a let down after all the fun and easy work of making the hexagons, to be confronted with a lot of boring seaming. Of course, you could connect them as you go, but that limits the spontaneous nature of the hexagons, because now you're chained to a full blown afghan project again.

And aside from the seaming, there are the gaping voids along the edges. Lots of people make half hexagons. They aren't difficult to figure out, if you have a picture on hand. Of course, that still leaves a pointy side edge.

Or maybe I could just put a border around the whole thing, like Adi Keren did:

Check out her Flickr stream here for other goodies, including a sweet baby blanket made out of tiny crochet flowers.

I'm off to see if I can create half-hexagons. Heigh, ho.


  1. That's gorgeous - is it for something or someone in particular?

  2. Nope - I just had all this yarn on hand that I wanted to use up, and I was waiting for supplies for my broomstick lace project...which is going really well, btw, and I hope to have pictures up soon.

  3. Wow - I'm SO impressed by the broomstick lace - I actually would like to watch you do some - I can't quite imagine the coordination that must take -
