Hexagon Mania Afghan

Lion Brand® Silky Twist

GAUGE:

One Hexagon measures about 11 in. (28 cm) across.

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

1. Afghan is made from 18 Hexagons and 4 Half Hexagons.
2. Hexagons are worked in joined rnds with RS facing at all times, changing color every other rnd.
3. Half Hexagons are worked back and forth in rows, changing color every other row.
4. Hexagons and Half Hexagons are arranged as shown in Assembly Diagram, then crocheted together. A border is worked around the entire outside edge.

Hexagon Mania Afghan Reviewed by Laura Taylor on 2014-02-14 *****
I've always wanted to make a hexagon afghan and this one was fast and easy to make. I love the color scheme, especially since my son's won't take the afghan because of the colors!
