My First Hexagon Blanket
Hexagon How-To by Lucy of Attic24
Hooks & yarn
3.75 mm (F)
Worsted (9 wpi)

2016 - scroll below for idea for half hexies for edge.

April 14, 2009 - I did 9 across and 14 rows down.
And I decided to make half hexies for the sides.

April 26, 2009 The border is done and Iā€™m very happy with the final results. This will get saved until fall when I mail it to the Cheyenne River Reservation. It will keep someone warm during those cold South Dakota winters.

Iā€™m joined them together on the 5th round as per Moonstitches directions.

Mine measure about 5.5ā€ from point to point or about 5.5ā€ from one side to the other - more or less.

Pictures of Half Hexies have disappeared from my blog so I am attaching the instructions here.

R1: 8 dc in a ring (however way you want to make the ring, I did a magic loop) Break yarn. DO NOT TURN

R2: Ch4, (2dc cluster in next DC, ch1) repeat 5x, ch1, dc in last dc. Break yarn do not turn.

R3: Ch3, dc in ch1 space, (ch1, 3dcā€™s in next ch 1 space) 5x, ch1, dc in ch1 space, dc in last dc. Break yarn.

R4: TURN hex motif to wrong side and start this row with a sc, ch2, (sc, ch3) 5x, ch2, sc in last stitch, TURN

R5: Ch4, 3dc in ch2 space, (3dc in next ch3 space, 3dc, ch2, 3dc in next ch 3 space) 2x, 3dc in next ch3 space, 3 dc in last ch2 space, dc in last dc.
