Hugs & Kisses Hexagon Quilt

July 2018
Aran (8 wpi) ?

This pattern is available for free.

It’s true, I love Caron Big Cakes the most! I cannot get enough of them. This particular colorway, Cherry Cake, was really calling to me. I finally figured out why. When I was a child, I had a handmade quilt with the same colors, all bordered in white. I think it was probably a scrap quilt as all of the colors were random.

So I decided to incorporate the Hugs & Kisses design into a random looking, quilt-style afghan using this yarn. Nothing was planned here. I just let the beautiful self-striping yarn flow. I bordered each hexagon in white to tie everything together.

If you choose to use Caron Big Cakes as I have, you will get 11 hexagons from a ball of yarn. So if you want to make a bigger size blanket, it’s easy to plan out. Also, you can plan you colors with any yarn you wish, but I would suggest continuing to border each hexagon with the same color.
