Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
In my search for a Granny Hexagon to make blankets for my girls, I just couldn't find one that I really LOVED. Then I realized that there were some gorgeous crocheted flowers with six sides, and I could make a hex from one of those. So this pattern was born. I created the blanket seen in the pictures for my daughter, Vada. It has provided much warmth, love, and tons of fun blanket fort time! The little holes throughout the grannies keep blanket forts light, but still private, what more could you want?!
This lovely hexagon granny blanket is easy to make with many step by step pictures accompanying the written pattern. Instructions for optional dimensional flowers within the hexagons are also included.
Always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and I will get back to you ASAP. You can also visit me at my Jessie At Home Facebook page:
There really is no gauge here. You can use any yarn you want and the hook that works best with the yarn. As with most granny blankets, just use as many blocks as you need to make the size blanket you want. Have fun with it, I know I did!
