Painted Turtle Afghan
This project is portable right up until it is put together. Every other round of the motif is worked in back-post double crochet that tips the top loops of the previous row forward, creating a ridge of punctuating color. The hexagons are joined on the right side with a single crochet that mimics the ridge.
