Persian Dreams had six different hexagon designs, and a blank chart for you to make up your own. Some of you were entranced by the thought of more hexagons, but didn’t want to make up your own and you asked me to do it for you. Well, here it is!

Note that the expansion pack is all fingering weight hexagons - not worsted like Persian Dreams Worsted For the worsted weight expansion pack, look here

This is not a complete pattern - this is a set of additional charts for Persian Dreams Throw. 17 new charts are included, so that, with the original 6 charts, you can make every hexagon in your blanket different! You can swap your new favorite charts in place of the ones in the original version, or just change it all around. It is up to you!
Note: Those first two photos are the original Persian Dreams. The hexagon images are what the new charts will make.

What is this pattern missing, that it isn’t a complete pattern on its own? It does not include exact yardage of each color (how much of each color you need depends on which hexagons you decide to use), It does not have a schematic showing which hexagons should be joined to which (again, there is no right or wrong way to do this, so I can’t tell you what to do), and does not have instructions on how to make the border or join the hexagons together.
However, it would be very possible to make a full blanket based on just these hexagon charts, if you already know basically how to join motifs and make a border.
If you are experimenting and making your own blanket, I recommend buying the same amount of your background color as in the original pattern, and then a single ball of each of the colors. Buy second balls of the colors if needed.
