This JAYGO (Join As You Go) hexagon motif project is very versatile.

You may choose to make the table runner as shown in the samples. You might also like to wear this project instead of using it on the table. Simply add on motifs to create extra length as desired. It would make a warm and luxurious scarf made with merino yarn.
You could also make this project into a larger rectangular wrap or a bed runner. Or keep going and make a blanket or throw! Be creative and make this one to suit your individual needs.

There are many different yarns suited to this motif, ranging from 100% cotton to 100% merino, cotton/bamboo blends, cotton/merino blends and acrylic. They would all work with the appropriate hook size. Choose your favourite yarn, and try a single motif. They’re so much fun!

Full video tutorial linked within the pattern. The YouTube video takes you step by step through the making of one hexagon motif, and shows you how to Join As You Go in detail.

This pattern is available as separate PDFs with US or UK terminology.
