Hexagon Granny


Hi! Happy to join in here. I am a mamma of 5 homeschooled, craft-loving, creative children. I always have too many projects going on, but was delighted to see a new crochet-along getting started.

I've begun a hexagon granny, from the cover of the Blue Ribbon Afghans from America's State Fairs: 40 Prize-Winning Crocheted Designs book. I am quite sure this pattern could be found elsewhere also, since most of the patterns in the book I have found on the internet.

It's a fun project so far.


Good luck everyone, and God Bless!


  1. The colours in this project are just amazing! I would like to be brave enough to try such colour combinations.
    I also just visited your blog and I must say your family looks wonderful. I love the photos of the kids playroom, so good to see wooden toys being played with!

  2. Oh, thank you!

    There is no theme with the color here -- this is honestly just what I had on hand. A bit of this and a bit of that. So, no bravery required, just a whole lot of non-matching yarn! :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. The colours are so lovely and work so well together - I love the design of the blocks too :) - great work and be sure to let us see the finished blanket!

  4. love the colors..its going to be beautiful..cant wait to see the finished ghan..

  5. the more colorful hexagons are, the more I like them ! it' s such a pretty combination... I can wait to see it all finished !
    I'd like to try hexagons for a blanket this Fall, at least it's on my to-do list ;)

  6. How pretty! My mother taught me to crochet when I was a child, but I have forgotten most of it. Can't wait to try making hexagons!
