Hexagon Love

I just love Hexagons they are my favourite shape a pain to join together but always worth the effort.  I really enjoyed making this Hexagon lap-rug it seems so long ago now and I'm always on the lookout for a new Hexagon that will inspire me to make another. Here are my collection of Hexagons from Beyond the square.  I have made these with Dk cotton and a 3.5mm hook
Motif #30
 A lovely motif and a pleasure to make.  It would be easy to use as a blanket motif because it just flows, you could miss the last round to make it even easier and it would still look good.  I will definitely be revisiting this one in the future.

Motif #31
There is a lot of work in this motif but it is such fun to do.  I like the real life version better than the one in the book as it's lovely to feel the texture. 

Motif #32
 I picked this one without realising that it was the reverse of Motif #31, how clever is that a two sided motif, I love it ! I can't decide which side I like the most but I have decided to make some pot holders with it, as others doing this challenge have noted it is ideal for that purpose because of it's thick texture.

Motif #33
 Another pretty little motif ideal for a large project.

Motif #36
 This one is like a little star depending on the colours you use it could be a lovely flower motif  too, nice made up as a shawl or scarf.

Motif #38
 There was quite a bit of work involved with this one, it's one of the larger motifs looking quite regal with it's 6 crowns.

Motif #42

A big lacy flower I just had to show you this one on two colour backgrounds, I think it looks so pretty with the blue background.  it's quite a big motif and I have to say this one does excite me, I can see it in a large project, not quite sure as what yet but inspiration will come I'm sure.

Progress 32 out of 100

  8. What lovely hexagons, it really makes me want to crochet but I'm more of a knitter, it would be great to do both so well.
