Hexagon Afghan

8,839

I made this afghan with Paton Classic Merino Wool. It has over 300 hexagons, each hexagon has 3 different colors and each hexagon has a different color scheme, measures approximately 50" wide and 70" long. I used gray to sew the hexagons together, then added a gray scalloped edge.
My daughter found the completed afghan in a magazine and asked if I could make it for her. I said I would try. It took me about 2 months. Now she has a family heirloom to pass on thru generations to come.

    Have you considered selling them? If so can you let me know how much you would charge for one. I would love one for my godson, it's so beautiful. Great job.

    I am sorry but I don't remember the pattern it was so long ago. I know I found a hexagon moffit I liked, no two had the same color pattern, trimmed each one in gray, sewed each one together with gray, and a gray outer trim.
    Hope this helps.

    The patternI received, I was asking for a half hexagon pattern, does not match my hexagon. How can I get the pattern for the one you are showing. that is exactly like the one I made. Thanks so much.

    It has been a while since I made this afghan but I think this is the one I used, if you don't like this one try search for how to crochet a half hexagon. Hope this helps Starting Chain: Chain 6. Row 1: 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, (ch 3, 3 dc in next ch) twice. Row 2: ch 3, dc in first dc, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-3 space, ch 2, skip next 3 dc, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next ch-3 space, ch 2, skip next 2 dc, 2 dc in last dc. End off.

    I love this....I've been wanting to crochet a hexagon afghan for years but never get around to it. Crocheting all those pieces together is what stops me....you did a fantastic job with all the colors...very pretty.

    I am so sorry but I dont have the instructions either, I know it was a popcorn stitch, cluster stick then double crochet stiches on outer edge. Hope this helps

    Hey Bademily! I absolutely LOVE your afghan! I saw one just like this in a catalog (maybe the same one your daughter fell in love with) and I've been searching the internet for a pattern, not having much luck. In fact, yours is the first I've seen that looks like what I want to make! Would you mind sharing your pattern with me? Please! Please! Please! I would be ever so grateful! ~Hilarie

    You have done a lovely job. What I like is that you have a great balance of light and dark colours throughout the piece of work. It was probably instinctively done. I think your daughter is very lucky to own this.

    Great afghan! Having made many a motif project (afghans/tunics/etc), they are a lot of work! You've done a wonderful job!
