SWIRLY CANDY textured hexagon pattern is a very relaxing pattern but also something new and different to try and to learn. It’s created using brioche technique which creates not only an incredible effect but a thick texture as well.
You can work a continuous any size hexagon or join the motifs to create blanket, sweater, bag, rug. Here are some ideas I collected and saved on my Pinterest that you might want to take a look: https://www.pinterest.com/bebablanket/crochet-hexagons-join/
The pattern requires at least two contrasting colors. It’s a perfect stash busting pattern as well.
