fireworks hexagon cotton picnic blanket
Created By: Lea Mollman
Pattern Source: other:

Loved the colors but wanted more! and bigger! Added more colors of other cottons and nearly doubled the size: 51 more hexagons, finishes about 5' x 7'.

Hints for granny square-type afghans:
Use self-adhesive labels to put a letter on every skein
Use self-adhesive labels on Ziploc bags and write the number of the square and the letters in order of each round: 1 A B C D E.
Do all 1st rounds, then add all 2nd rounds, etc. Much easier when each round requires a different number or kind of stitch. Store bits in Ziplocs as you go along.
When you are ready to assemble, line up piles of squares (or hexagons) in order, 1 through whatever, with the required yarn for the connecting round. I put mine on a LARGE tray so they were portable.
