ATTENTION!* A Knit-Along (or KAL) will take place for this pattern beginning January 1, 2014. If you would like to participate, just purchase the pattern and grab your yarn. I will be putting together some kits to sell before the KAL begins, or this would be a great way to use up leftovers of sock/fingering weight yarns you already have. As the KAL gears up I will be posting blank charts for you to color in to find your perfect color progression.**

Nothing is quite so pleasing to me as stacks of perfectly nesting little hexagons. Reminiscent of the quilting technique of English Paper Piecing, these little hexies are a great way to play with color. Pick your own rainbow of colors, or choose a palette of neutrals. If you love one color intensely, highlight it with a background neutral colors as in the smaller version. The color possibilities are endless.
