Six’es is a pattern for an afghan or a blanket made mainly out of hexagons patches that are individually knit and then seamed together. The border is knit directly on the afghan by picking up stitches around the border. The finishing touch is the i-cord bind off, creating a neat edge.

The pattern includes directions for the hexagons, but also includes directions for the 4 types of border patches and the 4 corner patches, so that you can achieve a perfect square finished piece. A total of 12 pages of detailed instructions.

There are diagrams for 3 sizes of blankets/afghans, a baby blanket, a lapghan, and an afghan or bed spread. You can use the diagrams to fill in colours of the pieces thereby testing the colour combinations without actually having to knit the whole thing first.

The pattern is given in sock weight yarn, but you can change the weight of the yarn (and the needle size) and get a different size blanket if you like. It is a perfect pattern for those scraps of yarn you have lying around.
