Notes

I really like these. :)

hexipuffcounter: 676

My aim is a blanket at 120x180 cm, or like 20/21x33 puffs, or a total of 676.

I didn’t like the ridge at the cast on. Also my puffs got a bit squized at the bottom part.

I made some changes and use the Judy magic cast on, kitcherner stitch at the top, increase by knitting in the strand between to sts, and knit 2 rows between every row of increase to awoid the squizing.

I’m using 4 dpns. size 3 mm. I like the dpns. To figure which side is which I got 10 sts at my first needle and 5 on the other 2. This works for me.

Im in no hurry, making one at a time.

I want my final blanket green and blueish - maybe a little purple.


While waiting for all of the hexis to be finished, my daughter borrowed the already finished to fill a haloween costume. She wanted to be a pumpkin.

600 hexies is pretty heavy - and warm.


  1. march 2013. Last puff knitted. Now for embrodery… I think.

April and may 2014. I finally found a flower I like.
Embrodery is fun.. and fast.
