This is a modern and elegant hexagon motif to make excellent use of your favorite self-striping yarn. 3 rounds in a self-striping yarn and 1 round in a coordinating solid and you will quickly complete your motifs. Join using Join As You Go or slip stitch the motifs together for a beautiful and luxurious throw.

With a self-striping yarn, colors are ever-changing and it is fun to see each motif develop differently. The final solid round defines the flower and shapes the hexagon.

I used 9 skeins of Treasure in color Tapestry and 4 skeins of Heartland in color Sequoia. (King Cole Riot can be substituted for Treasure, with any similar weight solid.)

Now included: Half-hexagon pattern so you can make a rectangular afghan with straight sides.
