Pattern Description:

I have a 7 year old special needs boy that just LOVES rugs! Having never made a rug before I set out to make a simple rug that he would love in his favorite shape - a hexagon. He picked out all the colors himself and I had it finished for him within a day or so of starting. It is his new favorite play area!

This rug is very soft and squishy under foot and very soft for the kids to play or nap on. It works up very quickly and is very easy to make and adjust the size if necessary.

There are endless combinations to choose from!
