Fall Hexagon Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1–2 = 4 in. (10 cm); Hexagon = 7 1/2 in. (19.5 cm) When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc dec) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
dc3tog (dc dec) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
ch-join: Drop loop from hook, insert hook from RS to WS in corresponding ch-sp of neighboring Wedge, pick up loop and draw to RS.
ch-2-join: If there is a neighboring Hexagon work (ch 1, ch-join, ch 1), otherwise work ch 2 only (do not join).

Fall Hexagon Afghan Reviewed by Anni Stotelmyer on 2009-04-16 *****
This is a beautiful afghan. It was a real joy to make and to assemble because you actually get to crochet the hexagons together to finish the blanket instead of sewing (which I can get a little bored with). I'm going to make it again with different colors.
